You can count on Blue Flame’s propane tank expertise!

You’re not alone. A lot of people are, whether they’re building a new home, replacing an old tank at their current home, going bigger because they’ve added more propane appliances like ranges and clothes dryers, or switching propane providers and are losing their previously leased tank.

Whatever the reason, you may be wondering about the size of your new propane tank and if it will be right for your home’s propane needs.

Propane tank sizes and why they matter

Propane tanks come in a variety of sizes. Which one is right for you may not be for someone else. It’s determined by specifics that are directly oriented by you! That is why you need solid, expert advice. And that is exactly what you get with Blue Flame!

Our propane tank experts take the time to thoroughly go over everything related to what size propane tank you will need. Some things to be considered include:

  • The size (square footage) of your home
  • The condition of your home insulation
  • Time spent at your residence annually
  • If you use propane for home heating
  • How many supplemental propane appliances are in your home
  • If you plan to add more propane appliances in the near future

When it comes to a 250-gallon propane tank, the home heating question is the game-changer.

That is because 250-gallon propane tanks are not large enough to handle the propane demand that comes with whole-house heating. A 250-gallon propane tank is what you have installed if you have multiple propane appliances such as water heaters, ranges, clothes dryers, and fireplaces.

For whole-house heating for example, you need a minimum tank size of 325 gallons.

Once we know what size propane tank you need, our trained and experienced technicians will install your new tank to meet the highest safety standards. We install both aboveground and underground tanks, and our tanks are top-quality, made with heavy-gauge steel and a special coating to prevent corrosion and make them last for decades to come.

If you’re ready to add, upgrade, or swap propane tanks at your home, contact us right away with any questions about propane tank installation and our superior service. And don’t forget to ask about tank leasing too!
