Is my propane tank the right size?

Written on: June 26, 2018

Propane tanks come in a variety of sizes, with aboveground models ranging from 56-gallon babies to power ovens, ranges, and clothes dryers to 1000 gallon giants for large homes and some commercial applications. Underground tanks can be even larger.
If properly installed, treated, and maintained, these tanks (especially underground propane tanks) can last for decades – which means that if you’re looking to buy or lease a new propane tank, it pays to take the time to make sure you’ve got the right tool for the job.
If you’re thinking about converting your home to propane use (or if you’re planning to build or add to your home using propane heat and power), let us know – we’ll find a solution that works best for your home and lifestyle. We’ll talk about the pros and cons of leasing versus buying, too, so you’ll be sure to get a solution that works best for you.
If you have added propane equipment to your Pennsylvania home over the years but haven’t changed your propane tank to keep up with the greater energy load, you could be refilling too often and paying more than you need to for your propane deliveries . If you don’t use automatic delivery, you could even run out of propane, which could be a significant inconvenience (or worse). If, on the other hand, your tank is too big, it takes more propane to fill it—and the cost to fill your tank will be higher than it needs to be.
When you lease a new propane tank from Ace-Robbins, our expert technicians will install it quickly and safely, with minimal disruption to you and your family and in compliance with all federal, state, and local codes and laws. We’ll even free pressure leak check, which is something we do whenever we install a new tank. Aboveground and underground options are available.
We also sell propane tanks for residential use – contact us to learn more.
