Running out of propane can be a real hassle. There’s the inconvenience, of course. Then there’s the cost of an emergency fill-up PLUS a leak test for safety. And even if your tank doesn’t hit completely empty, you could still face some real problems. When propane levels get too low, air can get into your system, which can lead to expensive damage.
Note: In general, you shouldn’t let your tank’s propane level go below 20%.
So, how do you avoid running out completely? Automatic Fill service is one way to avoid runouts. But…automatic deliveries aren’t the best solution for everyone.
If your propane use fluctuates, we can’t use our algorithm to best predict your needs. Customers who travel often or for extended periods, or those who run a rental property, tend to use propane inconsistently, using a lot one month and less at other times. Even things like using your propane hearth often can affect your usage. That’s why the real-time accuracy of our wireless propane tank monitoring service is so great!
Wireless tank monitors track the level of propane in your tank in real-time and transmit your usage via wireless cellular technology. When the tank gauge reaches a pre-set level—typically about 25-30% full—the monitor alerts us—and you—directly via a wireless mobile app.
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 better save on energy costs.
Even if you don’t use it to improve energy efficiency, a tank monitor can save you the expense and hassle of fuel runouts and take the guesswork out of knowing exactly when to order fuel—especially if you’re ordering propane for a second home…or you just forget to check your gauges!
A wireless tank monitor is easy to install, and we can have you ready to go in just a matter of minutes! Contact us today to find out more about the benefits of wireless tank monitoring and how we can get you set up 100% hassle-free.
