If you’re a property manager in southern Maine, you’ve got a lot to keep track of on a routine basis. Particularly so if you manage short-term or vacation rentals or Airbnb properties. Turnover days can be a whirlwind that involves cleaning, making up rooms, and restocking supplies—and whether you have a team of helpers or you do it yourself, you’re on a tight schedule. It can be easy to forget to check the level of propane in your tank and the last thing you want is for guests to experience a runout.
A tank monitor can help in exactly this type of situation! Here’s how:
Wireless tank monitors track the level of propane in your property’s tank in real-time and transmit usage data via wireless cellular technology. When the tank gauge reaches a pre-set level, the monitor alerts us—and you—directly via the wireless mobile app.
We’ll automatically make a delivery to ensure there’s no run-out. Or, if you prefer a will-call service, you can schedule the delivery with us at that appropriate time.
Automatic delivery is great and convenient—there are no two ways about it. However, it’s based on a consistent level of usage. When you have different people, with different habits, using propane at different rates, our algorithms won’t work as effectively.
Your guests one week might take lots of long hot showers, run their towels through the dryer every day, and stay up late in front of the propane hearth every night. The tenants the next week might barely use any propane at all. That makes it hard to predict tank levels to provide reliable automatic deliveries.
It also means physically checking the tank gauge can be unreliable too. Tank levels could seem fine when one set of renters check-in, but by the time they leave they’re super low—and you’ll have to get a rush delivery scheduled.
With a wireless tank monitor, there’s no need to guess. Our Odata monitoring system comes with a convenient app that lets you track multiple tanks with ease, at any time, right from your smartphone.
The bottom line? When you sign up for our tank monitoring service, you get peace of mind because you never have to worry about the hassle for your guests, the potential for negative reviews, and not to mention the costs of running out of propane. Installation is quick and easy—we can have you set up and ready to go in a matter of minutes.
