Propane tank sizes

The right propane tank for your home depends on many things. That’s why you may need a different sized propane tank than a neighbor with a similar sized home.

These factors not only include the size of your home, but how many and what kind of propane appliances you have, how energy efficient they are and, if you heat your home with propane, how well insulated your home is.

We’ve put together information about common propane tank sizes so you get a better idea of which one may be right for you.

Propane tank buying vs. leasing

propane tanksThere may come a time when you find yourself faced with a decision: Should you lease or buy a propane tank? It’s crucial to take the necessary time to thoroughly assess your options, as the choice you make will have long-term consequences for your future.

There are numerous advantages to owning your propane tank. One notable benefit is that you have the freedom to select your preferred propane delivery service, granting you the flexibility to effortlessly switch providers if faced with subpar service or exorbitant pricing. With these perks, you can enjoy the convenience and peace of mind that comes with managing your propane needs on your own terms.

On the flip side, if you decide to own your propane tank, you will be fully accountable for its purchase, installation and upkeep. This entails covering the expenses related to propane tank maintenance, repairs and safety inspections.

If your current propane tank is aged, damaged or no longer meeting your propane requirements, opting to replace it can result in significant initial costs. Acquiring and installing a new propane tank can amount to thousands of dollars, in addition to the expenses accumulated over time.

Leasing a propane tank from Callahan’s Gas comes with numerous advantages. Not only is it a cost-effective option, but it also guarantees a seamless and stress-free experience.

We take care of all your maintenance and repair needs. Before installing your new propane tank, we’ll make sure to provide you with the right size that perfectly fits your property and meets all your propane requirements.
