Bottini customers have always appreciated the convenience of our automatic delivery service. It lets you cross ordering a propane tank refill off your to-do list and it prevents run-outs for many customers. But automatic delivery only works if your usage is predictable. That’s why we also provide wireless tank monitoring. Combined with the convenience of automatic delivery, it’s just one way we’ve got you covered.
So, what’s a propane tank monitor and how does it work? We’re glad you asked.
Wireless tank monitors track the level of propane in your tank in real time, and transmit your usage via wireless cellular technology or wifi. When the tank gauge reaches a pre-set level, the monitor alerts us—and you—directly via the mobile app. That means you can still schedule your own deliveries if you prefer, but you don’t have to constantly check your tank.
The app makes wireless tank monitoring great for people who are managing a rental property or an air bnb, or multiple properties. Propane use can fluctuate a great deal when different people, with different habits, are using a property over the course of a month. The app lets you know when deliveries are happening, and how often. No need to go and check the tank gauges of your different properties.
If you have a second home, a wireless tank monitor means you don’t have to worry about how much propane is in the tank or think about ordering a fill up before you arrive.
In addition to timely alerts, the app gives you even more control and insight. You can use it to easily track and adjust your monthly energy consumption—and save on energy costs. For example, if you use your hot tub more than usual, you may see a spike in your usage.
Automatic delivery service relies on consistent propane use. We use a proven algorithm based on your usage and the weather to determine when you will need a propane delivery. Since our calculations are based on your average usage, it’s important for you to let us know of any changes that would result in a big shift in propane use. An extended vacation, more or fewer people living in your home or spending more time at home all day, new propane appliances or hearth products can all change your propane use. As long as we know about those changes, we can recalculate and adjust your deliveries.
If you have regular habits and your propane bills are pretty level, you are likely fine opting for automatic delivery service. Just remember to let us know if you’ll be away for an extended period or if you add new propane equipment.
Of course, if you travel often or your usage patterns fluctuate a lot, keeping us in the loop is as much of a hassle as checking your tank levels. That’s when wireless tank monitoring is the service for you.
That’s why for total peace of mind and zero hassle, a tank monitor is a smart choice.
The bottom line is that a propane run-out can be more than a nuisance. It can be a very expensive mistake. With tank monitoring, you can eliminate the chance of a runout while also saying goodbye to the hassles and headaches of managing your propane deliveries.
What’s in it for us? It makes things easier on our end too. We’re better able to plan deliveries, using the most efficient routes. That saves time and money—savings we can pass on to you.
