Is Your Propane Tank Summer Ready?

Seasonal Care Reminders

summer propane service new york Summer is officially here! Some of you will be getting away while others stay local. Some of you prefer the sun, while others like the shade. Some of you will head to the beach, and others will head to the pool. Whatever your summer season is going to look like, make sure your Hudson Valley home’s propane tank is also ready.

The good thing about propane tanks is that compared to other home comfort appliances, they’re pretty low maintenance. But that doesn’t mean you can forget about yours completely, especially during the summer. There are a few things you need to do so that your propane tank will run as it should.

Propane Tank Summer Care

Now that summer is here, you should do the following things to care for your propane tank and ensure that it will run safely all summer long.

  1. Clean up. Just as you need to clear snow away in the winter, make sure to clean up around your propane tank during the summer so that our delivery crews can easily access it. That may mean trimming branches or bushes and clearing away nests. Clear away anything that could block the tank or the path to the fill valve.
  2. Look for rust. If you notice any rust spots on your tank, make sure to have them addressed immediately. Otherwise, you could end up with a leak. Better yet, sign up for our Propane Heating service plan, and receive an annual inspection for your propane heating equipment by one of Bottini’s trained professionals.
  3. Fill up. It might seem counterintuitive since it isn’t peak heating season, but you should still keep an eye on your propane tank level and request a delivery before your tank is less than ¼ full. Prices tend to drop during the summer months, so it’s a good time to buy. And especially if you’re running propane appliances like a propane pool heater or water heater, you don’t want to risk running out.
