Fact: Not everyone uses propane in the same way.

If you have “irregular” propane usage—such as if you travel frequently or live away from your home for weeks or months at a time, or if you have a second home, as many folks do in our service area—it can make tracking your propane usage increasingly challenging. And while Blue Flame’s automatic propane delivery service is extremely accurate, situations like these can prove to be tricky.

Whether this is your primary residence, or if your second home is a summer vacation home, short-term rental, or year-round income property, wireless propane tank monitoring from Blue Flame helps keep that home safe, warm, and comfortable at all times.

Why Should I Worry About Running Out Of Propane?

If you run out of propane, the solution isn’t to simply have Blue Flame come over and fill your tank and then everything is peachy-keen.

If you run out of propane in cold weather, that means your home doesn’t have heat. You’ll be cold and you could be risking frozen or burst pipes. And any time of year, you’ll be taking cold showers.
Emergency deliveries also come with an additional fee.

Plus, it is required that your propane tank have a pressure test to check for any leaks that may have formed while you were out of propane. You’re on the hook for that, too. On top of that, you’ll need to pay for a professional to re-light the pilots in all your propane appliances before they can be used.

As you can see, it’s far greater of an inconvenience than you’d first think.

How Does Wireless Propane Tank Monitoring Work?

The wireless tank monitor is easy to install, and you don’t have to be home when we do it! It simply attaches right on your tank outdoors! Once it’s installed, managing your propane usage is easy as pie.

There’s no more going outside in bad weather to check your tank gauge levels or getting someone to do it if you are not there. You don’t have to call us to request a delivery. And worrying about running low on, or running out of, propane is a thing of the past. That’s because the wireless tank monitor lets Blue Flame know in real-time exactly how much propane you have 24/7. We are notified when your tank gauge levels reach a set percentage, and you need your propane tank filled.

Thanks to our smartphone app, you’ll also know exactly how much propane you have, any time of day or night. You’ll also be notified, as we are, when it’s time to get your propane tank filled. Simply log on to the app and know the exact percentage you have inside.
