Choosing a Tank for Your Propane Home

Technician testing a propane tank

Propane provides real benefits when used in new home construction, remodels or upgrades. Performance, efficiency and comfort are all qualities that homeowners enjoy from propane appliances. There is also the security of knowing that your energy source is stored on-site and not subject to power outages or curtailments.

A key to ensuring that energy independence is installing the right tank for your home’s annual energy demand. Luckily, choosing the right tank is not difficult. If you’re building a new home, have your propane supplier and your building contractor walk the site to determine the best location for your tank. They will also help you determine if the proper size for your energy needs, whether an above or underground tank is right for you and whether leasing or owning is the right choice.
