How Much Is Enough?

Given how much you use propane in and around your home, you may be wondering if you have enough propane for the fall and winter. You certainly don’t want to have a run-out.

What’s so terrible about a run-out? If your propane tank runs empty it’s a real hassle and can be costly. You’ll need an emergency delivery or propane, a required pressure test, and the professional relighting of the pilots on all of your propane appliances. That’s a headache and expense you want to avoid.

And you don’t need to run out completely to have problems. When your propane levels get too low, air can get into your heating system. And having air in your heating system can lead to expensive damage.

How much propane in the tank is enough? As a general rule, you don’t want your tank’s propane level to go below 20%.

How Much Propane Do You Have?

Propane tanks come in a variety of sizes. If you know your tank’s capacity and take a reading of your tank’s gauge, you can calculate the number of gallons that percentage represents. If you’re really on top of things, you know your weekly propane usage and can calculate how long your current supply of propane will last. Then you’ll know if you have enough to make it through the fall and winter months.
