How Does a Propane Tank Monitor Work?

Written on: July 30, 2021

But any automatic fuel ordering service has its limits—mostly because has to rely on estimates based on your past use. That’s great if you are using the same amount of propane that you usually do.

But what if you aren’t?

What if you’ve expanded your home, or installed larger propane appliances since last year? What if your kids are home from school taking long, hot showers—or if you installed a feature in your house that you use periodically and unpredictably, such as a propane pool heater or propane fire pit? If your lifestyle changes, your estimates will probably be off, putting you at risk for a propane run-out.

Propane Wireless Tank Monitors Provide Ultimate Peace of Mind!

The good news is there is an easy solution to managing your propane deliveries that’s a step up from Automatic Delivery in terms of both reliability and ease of use: a propane wireless tank monitor.

Here’s how it works: A propane tank monitor keeps track of how much propane is in your tank at all times, transmitting that information to delivery teams (and to you, via a smart phone app) in real time so everyone knows when you need your next propane delivery. Whether your propane usage goes up or down, everyone will know it instantly and respond quickly so you’ll never run out of gas.

It’s the future of propane delivery for your central North Carolina home—brought to you now by the pros at Pico Propane.
