propane smell coming out of new unit


I just got a new "gas pack" installed and there is a slight (sometimes moderate) smell coming out of the unit that is somewhat bothersome to my neighbor, whose house is a few feet away. The unit was installed 2 weeks ago. Is this a normal odor to be coming out of the unit on the outside of the house?

I wouldn't think so. I would get those folks back there ASAP, sounds like you have a leak

Get your installer back out there to check it out. They' ll be happy to answer your questions and be sure unit is working/ installed properly. By the way do this ASAP!!

If the tank is running low the additives tend to become more concentrated and you get an abnormally strong odor. dont rule out a leak, but ive seen this with propane stoves. when the tank gets low the smell is quite strong.
