Running out of propane during the winter in Western NY isn’t fun.
Besides the obvious problem of having a dangerously cold house, you also run the risk of having more serious issues, like frozen water pipes or a long-term mold problem. You’ll also have to pay out of pocket for the pressure test required by law when you restart your propane system after a service interruption.
Those are some strong reasons to avoid a fuel runout. But how do you do that?
If you manage your own propane deliveries, it’s critical to keep a close eye on your propane tank gauge throughout the winter – especially when temperatures drop suddenly (the way they have been the last few weeks). You could be using fuel 50 percent more quickly during a cold snap here in Rochester or Buffalo, so be sure to make monitoring your fuel tank part of your weekly routine.
Of course, if you don’t want to go through that hassle, there is an easier and FREE alternative to will call delivery: automatic propane delivery from Irish Propane
