Why Do I Need a Propane Tank Monitor?

We love Automatic Propane Delivery here at Pioneer Oil and Propane – it’s a free way to avoid the cost, inconvenience, and potential dangers that can come from propane gas run-outs and to manage your propane deliveries throughout the year.

But as good as Automatic Delivery is, remember that its success relies on an educated guess about how much propane you’re likely to use (based on how much you’ve used in the past, making an allowance for current weather).

Most of the time, this system works quite well. But what if you’ve added a propane pool heater to your Massachusetts home – or installed a larger propane water heater? What if the vacation home you own sat empty last year, but will have a guest coming in the fall?

These “lifestyle” changes can have a big impact on how much propane you use from day to day, week to week and month to month. If you use more propane than you (or we) expected, you could end up running out of fuel.

The propane tank monitor solution

The good news is there is an easy solution to this problem: install a propane tank monitor from Pioneer Oil and Propane.

Propane tank monitoring uses a cellular network to keep tabs on the exact amount of propane in your tank right now, so we can deliver your propane whenever you need it. If your propane usage goes up or down, we’ll know it instantly and respond quickly so you’ll never run out of gas (you’ll know it, too, since you can track your propane tank levels on a convenient app for your smart phone or tablet).

It’s the future of propane delivery for your Worcester, MA-area home – brought to you now by the propane pros at Pioneer.
