Why Do I Need A Propane Tank Monitor?

But Automatic Delivery will never be a perfect solution because it relies on estimates – for example, how much propane you’ve used in the past and recent weather (measured in “degree days”).

With that level of reliance on estimates, Automatic Delivery works great if you use an average amount of propane in a given cycle.

But what if you don’t?

What if you’ve expanded your home, or installed more or larger propane appliances since your average was last calculated? What if children have moved home from college – or what if you installed a propane-powered outdoor kitchen and didn’t let us know? In those scenarios (and many others), your estimates will likely be off, putting you at risk for a propane run-out.

The good news is there is a way to manage your propane deliveries that removes all possibilities of an unexpected run-out: install a propane tank monitor.

A propane tank monitor is a device installed at your tank that keeps track of exactly how much propane you have in your tank right now. That information automatically transmits to our delivery teams (and to you, via a smartphone app) so everyone is in the loop on when you need your next propane delivery. If your propane usage rises or drops, we’ll know instantly and respond quickly so you’ll never run out of gas.

Available for a nominal monthly fee, propane tank monitoring is the future of propane delivery for your Minnesota or Wisconsin home – brought to you now by the experts at Lakes Gas!
