Why Do I Need a Propane Tank Monitor?

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

But Automatic Delivery isn’t perfect: since your automatic delivery schedule is based on your average use of propane in the past (along with the current weather, measured in degree days), it is most reliable if your propane use doesn’t change all that much from year to year.

But what if you’ve added a propane pool heater to your Central Maine home – or upsized any of your other propane appliances? What if you own a vacation home that sat empty most of last year but will have a number of guests in the coming fall – or if your propane generator got pressed into service during a power outage? If your propane needs vary from week to week and month to month, a delivery system based on estimates may not work very well.

So what will work well, you ask? A propane tank monitor from Murray-Heutz 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 Maine home – brought to you now by the propane pros at Murray-Heutz.
