How big of a propane tank do I need?

Here are the steps we take before installing a propane tank at your home.

Step 1: Determine Tank Size

Factors influencing tank size are the total square footage of the home, total BTU load of installed propane appliances and the climate zone. Typical horizontal propane tanks have a water capacity of 125 to 1,000 gallons and can be filled with propane to the 80 percent level.

Step 2: Determine Tank Placement

We evaluate accessible, safety-approved sites when selecting a location for a propane tank. Considerations should include:

  • Building and safety codes, which vary from location to location.
  • Ease of access, to allow delivery trucks the ability to refill the tank in all seasons (tank must be located within 100 feet of the driveway).
  • Overall site design, aesthetics and landscaping.

Step 3: Tank Installation

Basic tank installation can be completed in a few hours, either by our own service technicians or approved contractors who can complete the project in an efficient manner.

Step 4. Regulator Placement

Regulators come with pipe size and distance requirements, just like tanks, and cannot be placed closer than 3 feet horizontally from any building opening, such as a window well, nor can they be placed closer than 5 feet from any source of ignition, such as an AC compressor. Our technicians will ensure that your tank is in compliance.

Automatic Delivery Service

Our Automatic Delivery Program leaves the scheduling to us! Our inventory tracking system allows us to track historical and current weather conditions as well as monitor propane usage in your tank to determine when a delivery is needed. How’s that for service? You won’t need to call us for a delivery.

With Automatic Delivery, your delivery will be scheduled before your tank gauge reads below 20 percent full. This reduces the possibility of an undesirable out-of-gas situation.

Ebbetts Pass Gas Service asks that you notify us if there has been a change in your home that increases your usage so that our automated routing system information is accurate.

Will Call Customer Tip: If you are a "Will Call" customer, call us when your tank gauge reads 30%.

How to Check a Propane Tank Gauge

Why choose propane for your home?

Winter storms that knock out electricity won’t knock out your propane, since it’s on site. Use propane to:

  • Heat your home
  • Heat hot water
  • Cook your food
  • Provide back-up power in an emergency
