Residential Propane Services

11 Month Budget Program

Also known as the “budget” program, is a program designed to break down your total season’s heating bill into monthly payments. The program's season runs April through June each year, with new payments calculated in April based on gas price and your usage. As a "budget program" customer, you are automatically enrolled in our worry-free Automatic Fill Service!

Automatic Fill Service

Also known as “keep full”, this program provides worry-free convenience by placing the responsibility to monitor your propane tank level on us. We use computer software to project when you are going to need more propane, which helps make us more efficient! We pass this savings on to you, as everyone on the program gains a 10 cents-per-gallon discount over standard Call-In rate! This can make your life much easier while saving you money!

Pre-Buy Lock-In Program

This program allows you to purchase your entire winter propane supply in advance at a locked-in winter price before the heating season begins. You pre-purchase the desired quantity of gas then draw off of that supply as needed. A 500 gallon minimum purchase applies. This program runs Sept. 1 thru March 31. Most Pre-Buy customers also enroll in our worry-free Automatic Fill Service!

Call-In (Will Call) Service

Call-in service is more expensive per gallon than our Automatic Fill Service. This service allows you to control when deliveries are made. Once you place an order for propane, delivery will occur within five (5) working days. To make sure you do not run out of gas it is important to order when your tank gauge reads 30%. This allows sufficient time for next delivery in your area. An additional charge may be assessed if you run out of gas or request emergency delivery.

Safety Tips & FAQs

1How do I read the gauge on my propane tank?

Most tanks of 47 gallon capacity or higher have a gauge. If your tank does have a gauge it will be located on the top of the tank, under the lift able hood. The tank gauge reads in percentages from 0% to 100% with 85% being full to allow for gas expansion.

2How can I recognize a propane leak in my home?

Propane has a strong, unpleasant smell, like rotten eggs or skunk’s spray. Propane manufacturers add the smell intentionally to help alert customers should a leak occur.

3If I use propane as my primary energy source, what size storage tank do I need?

Generally, a 500-gallon tank can hold enough propane to meet the annual energy needs of an average four-bedroom home. Tanks of 1,000 gallons or more may be needed for large homes with swimming pools and hot tubs.

4Is propane gas clean and efficient?

Yes. Propane has long been recognized as the “green” energy. By using propane, homeowners can help cut emissions and protect the environment, and burns hotter and more evenly than many other fuels. In addition, propane equipment and appliances have a shorter energy savings payback period.

5Is there a minimum gallon delivery?

During the months of November-March, there is a 200 gallon minimum fill to not be charged a delivery fee.

During the months of April-October, there is a 150 gallon minimum fill to not be charged a delivery fee.
