When your home’s propane tank runs empty, life suddenly becomes more complicated. Running out of propane is not only a serious and costly situation, but it can also pose various problems and potential dangers for you and your family.
First and foremost, you’ll need to make arrangements for an emergency propane delivery, which incurs higher costs compared to a standard delivery.
Hiper Gas is also responsible for conducting a system leak test on any propane tank that runs out of gas. According to safety codes, your propane supplier must perform this gas leak test before refilling your tank and relighting your appliances. This ensures the utmost safety for your home and family.
When your tank is filled with propane, the system maintains a consistent pressure. However, as the fuel level decreases, so does the pressure. This decrease in pressure can lead to leaks due to the expansion and retraction of the piping compound within the propane system.
If there is an interruption in service, like running out of propane, a pressure test will detect any leaks in the piping. The necessary corrections will be made promptly. Please note that there is a charge for this essential service. Additionally, running out of propane can lead to other issues.
The accumulation of rust inside an empty tank can conceal the distinct smell of rotten eggs associated with propane, thereby hindering the detection of a potential leak.
If your propane tank runs empty, the pilot lights on your propane appliances will extinguish. This can pose a dangerous situation if not handled correctly. This is why you need a professional to re-light the pilots after the pressure test is completed.
One way to avoid the hassle and potential dangers of running out of propane is by filling up your tank in early fall. This ensures that you have enough fuel for the colder months when you rely on propane for heating and other household needs.
If you use Will-Call for your propane delivery, it is important to be proficient in reading the gauge on your propane tank. This skill will enable you to accurately assess the remaining propane level and determine the appropriate time to reach out to us for a delivery request.
To determine the propane level in your tank, locate the circular dial resembling a car’s speedometer. The numbers on the dial indicate the percentage of propane remaining. For example, if the dial reads 50, your tank is 50% full. To ensure prompt Will-Call delivery, kindly reach out to us in advance to schedule a propane delivery before your tank level drops below 30%. This proactive approach guarantees that we can make a timely delivery before your supply runs low.
