A&A was a small seasonal business serving local trailer parks and industrial fork lift customers until June 1993 when Brian & Dianne Chadwick purchased A&A from Dave Madsen and expanded to serve residential and larger commercial propane accounts. Since then, the demand for propane as a heating fuel has continued to grow, and with that demand so did A&A Propane. As A&A began to increase so did our service area.

Frequently Asked Questions

Propane is considered a clean burning fuel and because of its portability, it has been used around the world for more than 50 years. Some of its uses are cooking, heating, manufacturing, agriculture, recreational, petro-chemicals and propellants. Additionally, because it is considered a clean burning alternative fuel for gasoline and diesel, propane continues to gain popularity in the transportation and warehouse (forklift) sectors.

Propane exists either as a by-product of refining gasoline from crude oil or it is extracted from natural gas. Close to 90% of the propane used in the United States is produced in the United States.

About 55 percent of our domestic production of propane comes from the crude oil refinery process: as a by-product of crude oil, the price of propane usually, but not always, tracks the cost of a barrel of crude oil.

Propane in its natural state is odorless. Therefore, an odorant called ethyl mercaptan is added to the fuel after it is produced which allows for its detection. The odorization of propane permits the early detection of leaks.

In order to accommodate for propane’s tendency to expand as the temperature warms, propane tanks are generally filled only to 80%-85% capacity. This is standard practice in the propane industry.

Propane prices respond to changes in supply and demand. Colder weather normally causes higher prices as demand increases and taxes the supply. Warm weather normally causes prices to moderate as demand drops and supply increases.

When you contact our office, we will ask you what appliances in the home will be using propane. Additionally, we may ask a few more questions, such as BTU’s for your appliances or square footage of the home. From this, we will choose a tank size that will properly suit your needs and our delivery schedule to ensure that you and your family never run out of propane.

Simply call our office at 1-800-668-1190. We will get your information and set a delivery date with you. We are available 8am – 4pm, Monday to Friday.

Energy & Safety Tips

Home Heating

  1. Residential heating systems need regular tune-ups.
  2. Change your furnace filter monthly. Clean filters will save you money on your heating bill.
  3. Consider investing in a furnace thermostat timer that can save money by lowering your home’s temperature when you are not at home.
  4. Protect against drafts around windows and doors by caulking and weather-stripping.
  5. If you are purchasing a fireplace, consider selecting one fueled by propane. Propane fireplaces burn more efficiently than wood-burning models and distribute heat more evenly throughout the room.

Water Heaters

  1. You can save more than 10 percent on your water-heating bill by turning down your water heater from the standard 140 degrees to 130 degrees.
  2. Ask about an on demand hot water heater which only heats the water as needed.
  3. To extend your water heater’s life and increase energy efficiency, drain it every six months to remove lime deposits and sediment.
  4. Install flow-restricting showerheads. You can reduce hot water usage by up to 50 percent without affecting shower pressure.
  5. Repair leaky faucets. A leak that fills a coffee cup in 10 minutes wastes 3,200 gallons of water a year.

Home Appliances

  1. Gas ranges with electronic ignition systems will use 40 percent less energy than a standing pilot system.
  2. Be sure that all burners are burning with a blue, cone-shaped flame. A yellow flame indicates clogged air inlets or burners that need adjustment. Contact your propane supplier’s service department immediately if you do not see a blue flame.
  3. Check the seal on your oven door. Gaps or tears in the seal will let heat escape and waste energy.

Propane Consumer Information

Propane is a versatile energy source used by more than 14 million families in and around their homes for furnaces, water heaters, cooktops, outdoor grills, fireplaces, generators, and other appliances. Propane is helping Canadians shrink their carbon footprint by providing a “green” solution for the environmentally conscious consumer. Propane delivers a clean, cost-effective, efficient and reliable energy solution.

General Safety Tips

  1. To readily recognize a leak, know what propane smells like. Propane retailers have pamphlets available with a scratch-and-sniff spot so that your entire family can recognize the smell. Propane leak detectors, similar to carbon monoxide detectors, are available. See your propane supplier to obtain one.
  2. If you smell a leak, immediately evacuate everyone from the building and call your local propane supplier or the fire department from your neighbor’s phone. DO NOT remain in the building, use the telephone or light switches or try to determine the source of the leak by yourself.s
  3. Be aware of where gas service lines are located, especially when working in your yard.
  4. Water can damage the internal safety mechanism in the gas controls of an appliance. If you suspect that your appliance gas controls may have gotten wet (because of flooding, for example), have a trained technician replace them immediately.

Heating Appliances

  1. All furnaces can collect lint and dirt and should be cleaned regularly. Contact your local propane supplier for information on proper cleaning, and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

Water Heaters

  1. Drain your tank periodically (until water runs clean – usually 2 to 3 gallons) to get rid of sediment buildup on the bottom of the tank.

Ranges

  1. Have your unit serviced if the burner flame is not blue. The blue flame indicates complete combustion. A yellow flame means air inlets are clogged or burners need adjustment. Contact your propane supplier’s service department immediately. Do not cover the oven bottom with foil – it can restrict air circulation.
  2. Never use gas ranges for home heating.
