Why Do I Need A Propane Tank Monitor?

Automatic Delivery is one of the best ways take the stress out of managing your propane and preventing inconvenient or even dangerous propane run-outs; when you consider that it’s FREE, it’s really hard to beat.

Fuel Usage Changes

But as good as it is, Automatic Delivery does have its limitations – mostly because it uses an estimate that is based on your past propane usage (along with the current weather) to determine when you’ll need your next delivery.

What Automatic Delivery is not so good at is taking into account changes not related to weather – how often you are home this year compared to last, for example (definitely an issue this year), or if someone has moved into (or returned to) your home…or anything else that raises (or lowers) your propane-using average.

When your propane use varies considerably from month to month or year to year, you always run the risk of a propane run-out – unless you know exactly how much gas is in your tank at all times.

That’s just what you get with a wireless TankUtility propane tank monitor.

How a wireless propane monitor works

A propane tank monitor sends a continuous, 24-hour signal to our office that keeps track of the exact amount of propane in your tank at any moment. The receiver in your tank alerts us when it’s time for a refill; your TankUtility app will also tell you when your levels are getting low.

Wireless tank monitoring is a great way to make managing your propane deliveries simple and worry-free. Even if you’ve never had a propane run-out before, a wireless tank monitor could be a smart move for you. To learn how smart, give us a call today.
