Monitoring Your Propane Tank

Written on: October 11, 2021

Here’s Why You Should Do It

But that doesn’t mean that you won’t have to think or worry about it in the future. We will be the first to tell you that it’s very inconvenient to run out of your propane supply. It can also be quite an expensive inconvenience.

Hometowne Energy’s Automatic Propane Delivery is a smart and convenient way to avoid propane run-outs…most of the time. However, it is not a 100% full-proof solution.

That’s because your automatic propane deliveries are based on estimates of your past propane usage and not your current usage. And because your fuel needs constantly fluctuate based on numerous factors, such as the amount of time you spend at home, how many people you have living under your roof and if you’re undergoing any home renovations, automatic propane deliveries are not always the most accurate.

However, Tank Utility from Hometowne Energy, a wireless propane tank monitor, is way more precise and pretty much eliminates the chance that you’ll run out of fuel.

How Tank Utility Works

A minute-by-minute tracking device is mounted to your tank and monitors how much of a propane supply you have. We receive a Smartphone notification when your supply is running low and your next propane delivery needs to be scheduled. It also allows us to contact you when your propane usage either drastically drops or increases.

Aside from the peace of mind it offers, there are other benefits to a propane tank monitor.

Hometowne Energy supplies wireless propane tank monitoring services to the Canandaigua, Churchville, Rochester or Rushville areas in Western, New York. Contact us today to start monitoring!
