Propane is extremely versatile. That means there are many different ways it can be useful in and around your Western North Carolina home. Propane can heat your water, your home, your pool, and your deck. Propane can cook your food on the range or in the oven of your kitchen or out in your backyard on a BBQ grill. Propane can also power a whole-house generator that will keep everything in your home operating in the case of a power outage—something that’s becoming all too common lately.
Especially given how much you rely on propane to do in and around your Wilkesboro, NC home, you certainly don’t want to have a run-out.
But that’s not all. Why else don’t you want to have a run-out? If your propane tank runs empty it’s a headache and can be expensive. You’ll need an emergency delivery or propane, as well as a required pressure test, plus the professional relighting of the pilots on all of your propane appliances. Those are inconveniences and expenses you can easily avoid by avoiding a run-out.
And you don’t need to run out completely for things to go wrong. If your propane level gets too low, air can enter your heating system and cause damage that will be expensive to fix.
How do you know if you have enough propane in your tank? As a general rule, you want to have a propane tank that is at least 20% full.
Propane tanks come in a variety of sizes. If you know your tank’s capacity, then you know how much propane you have after a delivery. If you’re between deliveries and take a reading of your tank’s gauge, you can calculate the number of gallons that percentage represents.
To calculate how long your propane delivery will last, you need to know your weekly propane usage. That in addition to knowing how much propane is in your tank will help you estimate how long your delivery will last. It’s simple math.
James Oxygen & Supply can make keeping an eye on how much propane you have in your propane tank even easier. No longer do you have to go out and read your gauge. Instead, we offer propane tank monitors from Wesroc. Let us install a propane tank monitor on your tank, and you’ll always have your propane tank level information at your fingertips on your smart phone or tablet.
When you’re ready for a delivery of propane, James Oxygen & Supply will deliver in five days. If you need your propane sooner, we can do that for an extra fee. Better yet, sign up for automatic delivery. Not only do automatic deliveries make your life easier, but they also save you 20¢ a gallon!
With automatic deliveries we do the work for you. We will estimate your propane usage based on factors including the current and recent weather as well as the size of your home and your past propane usage. Using that information, we schedule a delivery to your home before you run low.
