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 Propane Tank Size

Factors influencing propane 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 Program

Our Automatic Delivery Program leaves the scheduling on 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. You won’t need to call us for a delivery! How’s that for service?

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.

WOC Energy does ask you to notify us if there has been a change in your home that increases your usage so that our automated routing system information is accurate. If you are not currently enjoying Automatic Delivery, call today and leave the scheduling to us!

Will Call Customer Tip: 

If you are a “Will Call” customer, call us when your tank gauge reads 30%. We require two business days’ notice to allow your delivery to be worked into our regular routes. No after-hours or weekend deliveries when on Will Call. Minimum delivery requirements apply.

“When storms came through recently, I didn’t have to call for more propane for our generator. WOC showed up automatically to top off our tanks. I was so thankful when I heard the truck pull in our driveway. Most people just compare the price of propane, but they forget that service goes a long way.”  —Alice Welliver, Wysox
