How to Read Your Propane Tank Gauge
Numbers indicate the percentage of gas remaining in the tank. Look at the gauge attached to the tank with the numbers from 5 to 95. (Don't confuse it with the pressure gauge, with numbers from 0 - 300.)
Don't get caught Out of Gas!
You have learned to keep a close eye on your car's gas gauge. Running out of gasoline is not just an inconvenience. It could place you and your loved ones at risk. You watch the gauge and fill your tank to avoid being stranded. What you might not know is you should watch the gauge on the propane tank at home.
Did you know?
The National Fire Protection Association in most cases recommends that anyone delivering propane to an out-of-gas customer or new customer perform a complete system check. Energy Partners requires this complete system check to ensure the safety of our customers. This leak or safety check could include an inspection of all lines, appliances, regulators and control valves. A thorough safety check can take an hour or longer to complete. Energy Partners charges for this inspection on a progressive scale. It may be inconvenient and the propane customer could be required to be at home at the time of the inspection.
Why is this inspection necessary on out-of-gas calls?
Propane is an extremely safe energy source when used properly. These out-of-gas procedures are required to protect your family and property. Convenience, comfort, cost and safety... these are four good reasons to avoid out-of-gas situations.
We're here to help.
Energy Partners wants to make sure that you always have all the heat you need and plenty of hot water. That means making sure that you never run out of propane. You can avoid the inconvenience and cost of an out-of-gas call. Just remember to call Energy Partners and have the tank filled before it reaches the one-quarter level. Or better yet, ask Energy Partners to place your account on an auto-fill basis (you must have an open account.) That way Energy Partners will make sure the propane tank is filled year-round.
