When you think of propane, you might first imagine outdoor barbecues or fuel for small fire pits. The most incredible benefit of propane that most people don’t realize is its eco-friendliness and reliability as an energy source in homes. In fact, 50 million Americans use propane energy to grill, heat their water, or heat their home.
Leasing a tank means you can benefit from using propane as an energy source in your home, which includes precise temperature control and a reduced carbon footprint. And when you lease your propane tank, the company you lease from can help you maintain the tank and keep it safe for use. Tank monitoring systems can help you track your overall fuel levels, get alerts for safety concerns, and conveniently schedule propane deliveries.
Here are the benefits of leasing your propane tank and the advantages of tank monitoring systems.
If you are using propane for your home, consider leasing your tank to get the most perks.
You enjoy numerous safety, economic, and installation-related benefits when leasing your propane tank.
When you hire a certified professional to install your home’s tank, like Shipley Energy, you ensure:
While you may feel like you have more control when owning a propane tank, leasing means you get the supplier’s installation, maintenance, and delivery priority, which saves you time and energy in the long run.
You can receive numerous safety benefits from leasing your tank.
When you lease your propane tank, you work with experienced professionals who have seen it all and can handle any situation that comes your way. Your supplier will maintain the system through regular inspections and scheduled checkups so that you feel safer.
Professionals can assess your propane tank for any problems and provide:
When you lease your propane tank from a trusted company, expect to save money on installation and maintenance costs.
Consider a few cost benefits of leasing your propane tank, including:
Peace of mind is one of the most significant advantages of using a reputable company for installation, repairs, and maintenance — you can rest easy knowing they are just a call away when you need help. They can educate you on caring for your tank while providing safe and efficient repairs as required.
Some companies will even include automatic fuel deliveries so you won’t have to think about refilling.
For instance, when you enroll in automatic propane deliveries, we monitor the temperature outside to calculate the likelihood of your fuel levels dropping below 25%. Once our system generates a ticket, we’ll refill your tank once we get to your area. This delivery plan is at a low fixed rate, so you’ll always know what you’re paying with no surprises.
When you lease, you also have the freedom to move homes without the additional costs associated with buying a tank.
Adding a tank monitoring system to your leased propane tank is an excellent option for homeowners. Suppliers can easily monitor your tank and receive an alert when you need a delivery so that you don’t run out of fuel!
Adding a propane tank monitor to your current system provides an extra level of efficiency, safety, and convenience.
Propane tanks are designed to be filled to 80% of the size they are labeled. If you have a 1,000-gallon tank, your supplier fills up to 800 gallons, which allows for expansion and contraction of the propane gas with weather changes.
Depending on your energy usage, you might see levels fall below 25%, which is prime time to refill. A tank monitoring system is beneficial for many reasons, including:
A propane tank monitoring system ensures you always have the correct amount of fuel for your needs. You and your service providers can assess the levels so you never run out of energy or approach any issues.
Avoid chilly winter temperatures when you can check your propane levels from the comfort of your home.
Tank monitoring systems are convenient in many scenarios:
Though propane is a highly safe energy option for your home and appliances, you receive additional safety benefits when you add a tank monitoring system, including the following:
A tank monitor system is a critical piece of safety equipment for your propane tank.
Leasing a propane tank for your home offers considerable cost, maintenance, and safety benefits. Additionally, a monitoring system ensures precise temperature readings and control for peak energy efficiency.

I've been a Shipley Propane customer since 2015. After experiencing a very large spike in my propane prices from Shipley, I did some research and called their customer support. Kat and Steve addressed my concerns, re-billed by two previous high price propane invoices, and locked me into a competitive rate going forward. It's always nice working with a customer service department that speaks clearly, acts quickly, and is empathetic toward a valued customer's concern. Thanks guys - greatly appreciated.Read less
Long time propane customers of Shipley. Excellent service and customer relations. Just changed our electric delivery for both home and small business to Shipley as wellPatricia K.
So happy I changed from oil to [propane] gas with Shipley Energy. Their experts did extensive work on my new heating system in my 175 year old house. They even took out the old oil drum. Excellent work!Katherine M.
Shipley Energy really saved the day for us! We ran out of propane while I was out of town. The propane manager and her team jumped into action and got my house heated and made an important repair to my tank all in the same day. Thanks so much!!Chad B.
