Look For The Gas Industry Certification Markings
CSA International is the principal product testing, certification and standards development organization serving the gas industry in the United States and Canada. CSA is the only organization authorized by the American Gas Association (A.G.A.) and Canadian Gas Association (C.G.A.) to award certification marks for natural gas appliances and equipment.
CSA recently introduced redesigned certification markings for the natural gas industry in the United States and Canada. Appliances and equipment bearing these seals are of highest operational quality. This change represents a new look but the same high standard of service for the Blue Star and Blue Flame markings.

Don't Get In Hot Water
Did you know that every day in America, eight people suffer serious burns from hot water? These accidents can often be prevented. If your water is above 125 degrees, it’s too hot! Consider lowering your water heater thermostat setting to 120 degrees or less. If your water heater has a “Low-Medium-High” setting, just adjust the dial to “Medium” or lower. You’ll not only prevent injuries from scalding, you’ll save money.
Properly Store Flammable Products
Many containers are designed and approved to safely store gasoline, some cleaning solvents, paints, thinners, mineral oils and other flammable products. But what if a container is accidentally tipped over and spills its flammable contents? The vapors can explode if they are ignited by electrical sparks, static electricity, burning flames or friction. Many people, especially children, are injured by the careless storage and use of these products. Keep flammable materials away from any natural gas or electrical appliance that could be a source of ignition. Check your storage area to be sure the flammable products are stored properly, and that caps or lids are securely fastened.
Maintain Chimneys and Flues
New England Gas Company urges consumers to have a licensed heating contractor periodically inspect their chimneys and flue pipes for safe operation. Chimneys and flue pipes should be checked for soot, residue or any other obstructions that could disrupt the flow of escaping gases and cause improper venting of carbon monoxide.
Keep Your Meter Accessible
New England Gas Company needs to access your meter year-round. We would appreciate it if you would keep walkways, driveways and the area around your gas meter clear of snow and ice during the winter months. Please keep shrubbery near the meter well trimmed so we can access it during the milder months as well.
