“Gas Check” is a registered trade mark inspection program developed by the National Propane Gas Association (NPGA) and the Propane and Research
Council (PERC), and funded by PERC that provides guidelines to technicians on how to perform different types of residential safety inspections:
Valley Energy performs a “Gas System Check” which can be completed on the gas delivery system, including the containers, regulators, and appurtenances.
The Certified Employee Training Program (CETP) developed by NPGA and funded by PERC is a training program used extensively throughout the country by people
involved in the handling of propane, equipment, and appliances and is the standard for all Valley Energy service and delivery personnel.
When a Certified Valley Energy Technician performs a gas system check you can rest assured that your propane supply and storage system is operating safely.
