Gas Gauge Guidelines: Don’t Let Your Propane Gauge Fall Below 20%
Always have enough propane with Keep Full automatic propane delivery from ProGas!
Life can get pretty busy. There’s work, family time, school activities, sports and more that take your time and attention.
Sometimes, chores may fall through the cracks, one of those being checking your propane tank gauge levels. If you put that off too long, it could mean big trouble.
Colder weather like what we get here across Pennsylvania, Ohio & West Virginia this time of year means you need more propane to keep your home warm. If your propane tank is around 20 percent and a cold snap hits, you could run out of propane. A runout leaves your home with no heat, which can lead to frozen or burst pipes as well as uncomfortable, and possibly unsafe, living conditions. To top it off, there’s the hassle and expense of an emergency propane delivery.
Also, too, you don’t have to run out of propane to have potential problems in your home. When you don’t have minimal propane left in your tank and the weather gets cold, the propane gas doesn’t expand as much. That creates low pressure, which means your propane appliances and heating equipment may not get enough propane to operate safely.
