What if you’ve never had a run-out?

propane tank monitors michiganAs someone who lives in the Tri-County region of Michigan, you know how important it is to prepare for the frigid winter months. Your family’s health and safety are important to you, and so you want to ensure that your home is always safe and warm, even when the weather outside is everything but. You can count on Lansing Ice & Fuel to deliver your propane in all kinds of weather. In addition to reliable fuel delivery, Lansing Ice & Fuel also offer wireless propane tank monitors to customers who qualify.

Having a propane run-out is a real headache, and it will cost you money. If your tank runs out completely, you’ll need a professional to get your system up and running again. But your propane tank doesn’t have to run out completely to cause problems. With a low enough propane level, air can get into your heating system. And having air in your heating system can lead to expensive damage. As a general rule of thumb, never let your tank’s propane level fall below 20%.

As a Lansing Ice & Fuel customer, you can take on the responsibility of monitoring your tank’s levels and calling us whenever you’re ready for delivery. Just be sure to check the amount of fuel in your tank more often during the colder months.

You can also leave all the scheduling and calculations to us and sign up for our automatic delivery service. When you become an automatic delivery customer, Lansing Ice & Fuel will use our sophisticated computerized system that monitors the weather and keeps track of your fuel usage to determine when to schedule your deliveries. Becoming an automatic delivery customer reduces the risk of having a run-out.

Wireless Tank Monitors

Having a wireless tank monitor can give you additional peace of mind. It’s hard to run out of propane when you can easily check the amount of fuel in your tank with an app on your phone!

Here are some additional reasons to consider adding a monitor to your propane tank:

  • You’ll save money since you’ll be able to easily track and adjust your monthly energy consumption.
  • You’ll never get caught with an empty tank because you can set low tank alerts on the app.
  • Lansing Ice & Fuel will also monitor your tank levels to ensure that you never run out.
  • You’ll get peace of mind and avoid the costly problems associated with running out of propane.

Even if you’ve never run out of propane in the past, why risk it now? You’ve got plenty of other things to worry about. Let Lansing Ice & Fuel take care of all your propane needs.
