How Much Propane Will I Use This Summer?

estimate propane use north carolinaWhen most people think of using propane at home, they think of heating their home in the winter. But propane really is a year-round fuel! If you are new to propane as a homeowner, you may be surprised at just how much propane you use during the summer, when you may initially think you’ll use none.

If you get a propane bill that’s higher than expected in the “offseason” months, you may even think you have a propane leak. While that’s still a possibility—and something you should check for—most of the time you’ve simply underestimated your propane usage.

Automatic Delivery: An Easy Way To Avoid Propane Run-outs!

With Automatic Delivery, you can say goodbye to obsessively checking your propane tank gauge levels and scheduling propane deliveries.
