Tips for finding good propane system installers include checking safety records, business practices and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) for information. Many choices for installations are made based on bids and schedule availability.
The safety record of the company should be the primary concern for customers. A low price does not mean that the company is the best choice. Having a low bid and a poor safety record could end up costing a customer a lot more money in the long run to make repairs, pay insurance costs or deal with dangerous leaks. Every state has a regulatory agency that oversees all activities. These agencies cannot make recommendations because they need to remain neutral overall, but they can help people find public information on gas companies.
One of the best places to get a good overview of a company's business practices and customer complaints or comments is the BBB. Customers can get their rating with the BBB. Potential customers can also ask the company about its safety program and their procedure. The company should be able to provide references that will attest to their statements. Also verifying they are a member of the National Propane Gas Associations and State Propane Gas Association shows that the company is up to date with the safety and updated procedures for safe installation.
