As the winter holidays approach, bringing with them a flurry of decorative displays, festive celebrations, and heartwarming family gatherings, Mesa Gas is committed to ensuring that every resident of San Tan Valley enjoys a safe and merry season. Amidst the excitement and hustle of the holidays, it's crucial not to overlook the safety of your home, especially when it comes to natural gas usage.

Here are some vital tips to keep in mind to ensure your household remains safe and cozy:

  1. Professional Installation and Servicing: Always rely on qualified professionals to install and service your gas appliances. This is not only a matter of efficiency but safety. Improper installation can lead to serious risks, including gas leaks.
  2. Adherence to Manufacturer Instructions: Each appliance comes with specific instructions for care and use. Following these guidelines helps ensure that your appliances run safely and efficiently.
  3. Proper Ventilation: Gas appliances need adequate ventilation to function safely. Make sure that vents are not blocked and that there's a steady flow of fresh air.
  4. Check the Flame Color: Your gas appliances should have a steady blue flame. A yellow or orange flame could indicate a potential problem and needs immediate attention.
  5. Fireplace Safety: If you have a gas fireplace, always keep the damper open while it's in use. This prevents the build-up of harmful gases in your home.
  6. Protect Your Gas Meter: Keep your gas meter safe from potential vehicular damage. This is especially important in areas where snow and ice can affect driving conditions.
  7. Caution with Digging and Planting: Before starting any digging or planting projects in your yard, dial 811. This simple step helps you avoid hitting underground gas lines.
  8. Emergency Protocol: In case you detect a gas leak, it's imperative to act swiftly. Leave the area immediately, call 911, and then contact Mesa Gas at 480-644-4277. Don't wait or attempt to fix the problem yourself.

Mesa Gas emphasizes that these guidelines are not just recommendations but essential practices for a safe and enjoyable holiday season.
