Outdoor propane tanks are built to withstand the extreme hot and cold temperatures we experience with the changing of the seasons. The freezing temperatures of the winter are no match for an outdoor propane tank – in fact, you don’t even have to cover your tank in the winter! Although propane tanks are built to withstand the extreme cold temperatures of winter, there are some safety measures you should know about to protect your household.
If your area is expecting a large winter storm, it’s best to plan ahead and schedule a delivery if you need one. Our general rule of thumb is to keep tanks above 30% during the winter. In the case of a major snowstorm where roads may be impassable and unsafe, our delivery drivers may not be able to get to you for a few days. You can conserve your propane supply by lowering your thermostat to a temperature where you’re still comfortable and closing off rooms that don’t need to be heated.
