How Do I Check The Level Of My Propane Tank?

Propane’s versatility makes it great for your New Jersey home.

You can use it for heating, cooking, water heating, clothes drying and more.

That’s why making sure you always have enough propane is essential. Running out of propane means your home is without heat, hot water and gas for cooking. It also means you’re facing the hassle and expense of an emergency propane delivery, along with the required professional pressure test and re-lighting of the pilots in all of your propane appliances.

Here’s how to check your propane tank levels:

There’s a round dial on your tank that looks like a car’s speedometer. The numbers on the dial indicate the percentage of how full the tank is. We advise that you don’t let your tank gauge level get below 30 percent before requesting a propane delivery.

But sometimes, you may get busy and forget to check your propane tank levels, risking a run-out.

We have a solution: wireless propane tank monitoring from Blue Flame!

What is wireless propane tank monitoring?

Wireless propane tank monitoring takes advantage of the same technology that lets you do things like monitor your home while you’re away, or adjust the HVAC or lighting from an app on your smartphone.

Our wireless tank monitor tracks your actual propane usage in real-time. You can use our app on your smartphone or tablet and check your current propane tank gauge levels whenever you choose. Want to check ahead of a forecasted cold snap? Busy day and you remembered at 10pm that you want to check? Go right ahead!

Why do I need wireless propane tank monitoring?

Not only can you monitor your propane levels with wireless propane tank monitoring, so can Blue Flame!

The monitor sends us an alert when your tank gauge reaches a set level, and we schedule a propane delivery to your home before you run low. When you reach that set tank gauge level, you’ll get an email notification. You’ll also get one when we make a delivery, so you have peace of mind that we’re on the job for you.

Enjoy the peace of mind that comes with wireless propane tank monitoring. Get in touch with Blue Flame to learn more and get on-board today!
