Is My Propane Tank the Right Size?

Propane tank sizes

Efficiency is all about choosing the right-sized tool for a job – and picking a residential propane tank is no exception.

Permanent residential propane storage tanks come in many sizes – from above-ground tanks and cylinders that typically hold 500 or 1000 gallons to in-ground tanks that can hold substantially more than that.

If you’ve added or upsized propane-powered equipment in your Finger Lakes-area home over the years but haven’t changed your tank to keep up with the greater need for energy, you could be refilling your propane tank too often and paying more than you need to for your propane deliveries. You could even run out of propane, which can be a costly, inconvenient, and possibly even dangerous mistake.

If, on the other hand, your tank is too big, it takes more propane gas to fill it—and the cost to fill your propane tank will be higher than it needs to be.

If you’re not sure your propane tank is the right size, contact us. We’ll evaluate your propane usage and review your recent bills to see if replacing your propane tank makes sense for you.

If you decide to lease a new tank, we’ll install it quickly and safely, with minimal disruption to you and your family and in compliance with all EPA and state codes and laws. We’ll even free pressure leak check, which is something we do whenever we install a new tank.
