There are numerous customers of ours who enjoy our automatic delivery service for propane needs to eliminate the worry of a run-out. However, if your propane use isn’t very consistent, automatic deliveries might not be the best solution for you. If your propane use fluctuates because you only use your home seasonally, you are away for extended periods, or you use propane for systems that you don’t use predictably, like for a gas hearth, we can’t use our algorithm to best predict your usage. This is where you will appreciate the real-time accuracy of our Otodata wireless propane tank monitoring service.
Wireless tank monitors—a small device attached right to your propane tank—uses wireless and cellular technology to monitor the level of propane in your tank in real-time. When the tank gauge reaches a pre-set level, typically around 25% full, the monitor alerts us—and you—directly, and we schedule a timely delivery. That means no more runouts, which can result in some big savings for you.
If you’ve ever had a propane runout, you know what a hassle it can be. There’s the inconvenience, of course. Then, there’s the cost of an emergency fill-up plus the expense of a leak test for safety. But did you know that simply letting your tank get too low can cause problems also? When propane levels get too low, air can get into your system, which can lead to expensive damage.
So, preventing runouts is just one distinct way that a tank monitor can help you save money. But a tank monitor can also help you save in another way that might surprise you.
