BrightStar Propane Offers Propane Tank Sizes To Meet Your House Needs.
What Size Propane Tank Do I Need?
Step 1: Determine Tank Size
Factors influencing tank size are the total square footage of the home, total BTU load of installed propane appliances and the climate zone. Typical horizontal propane tanks have a water capacity of 125 to 1,000 gallons and can be filled with propane to the 80 percent level.
Step 2: Determine Tank Placement
We evaluate accessible, safety-approved sites when selecting a location for a propane tank. Considerations should include:
- Building and safety codes, which vary from location to location.
- Ease of access, to allow delivery trucks the ability to refill the tank in all seasons (tank must be located within 100 feet of the driveway).
- Overall site design, aesthetics and landscaping.
Step 3: Tank Installation
Basic tank installation can be completed in a few hours, either by our own service technicians or approved contractors who can complete the project in an efficient manner.
Step 4. Regulator Placement
Regulators come with pipe size and distance requirements, just like tanks, and cannot be placed closer than 3 feet horizontally from any building opening, such as a window well, nor can they be placed closer than 5 feet from any source of ignition, such as an AC compressor. Our Brightstar Propane technicians will ensure that your tank is in compliance.
We offer propane delivery options!
Automatic Propane Delivery
Our Automatic Delivery Program leaves the scheduling to us! If you sign up for Automatic Delivery, we add you to a regular route so that we stop by each month to top off your tank. How’s that for service? You won’t need to call us for a delivery.
This reduces the possibility of an undesirable out-of-gas situation. Brightstar Propane does ask you to notify us if there has been a change in your home that increases your usage. If you are not currently enjoying Automatic Delivery, call us today.
Some customers prefer to let us know when they need a propane delivery. They order on a “will call” basis. It is important that Will Call customers do not let their tank get below 30% to ensure we can schedule a delivery. It is your responsibility to watch your gauge regularly. Watch the video on our propane safety page to see how to check your gauge!
