Follow The Signs
Annapolis Propane & Fuels is passionate about providing you with all the information you need to keep your propane powering through every season. When your property runs on propane, it’s important to gauge how much you have left. We always have you covered and will never let you run on empty, but it’s a good practice to monitor your propane levels. Let’s dive into some of the main signs that your propane tank is low!
We’re lucky to experience all four seasons in Maryland, but it also means that our usage for propane shifts by the month. Typically, we use more propane in the Fall and Winter months than in the Spring and Summer. It's essential to start the colder seasons off by checking for any signs of your propane tank being low. You don’t necessarily need to worry about this step if you’ve signed up for our Automatic Propane Delivery option, which gauges your usage and schedules propane deliveries to your doorstep!
Check Your Appliances
You can gauge your propane level by simply starting dinner. If your stove flames are sputtering, this could be a sign your propane tank is low. Steady flames indicate the propane is full and smoothly operating, so if you see wavering flames on your stove or fireplace, you could be due for a refill. As for outdoor appliances, the same goes for grill tanks. If your outdoor grill doesn’t light, it's a clear sign that your propane tank is low or empty.
Monitor Your Gauge
Each Annapolis Propane tank has a gauge to indicate your propane levels at any given time. This measure level is the most accurate sign that your propane tank is low. If you selected our Will Call Delivery option and you see that your gauge is at 30% or less, give us a call. We’ll get your propane delivered to you at your earliest convenience!
The Tank Feels Lighter
This sign is pretty self-explanatory, but it’s the easiest way to tell when to refill your propane tank. You can’t exactly pick up your residential tank, but you can use this method with your grill tank. If it feels light and is easy to pick up, chances are your propane is probably running low.
Never Run On Empty
These are just a few signs that your propane tank may be low. Though, our experts at Annapolis Propane & Fuels will never let you be without sufficient propane. That’s why we have our “No Run-Out Guarantee” and around-the-clock emergency service. If you have any other questions or concerns about your propane levels, don’t hesitate to contact us!
