Do You Use Propane? Check Out Wireless Tank Monitoring!

Improve Your Approach to Home Heating

But automatic propane delivery is the best solution for everyone. When you sign up for automatic delivery service, we use a proven industry method to calculate your propane usage. We work with an algorithm based on your past usage patterns alongside real-time weather conditions to make sure we schedule deliveries and fill your tank on time. But the algorithm only works best if you have consistent usage patterns.

That meant, until now, that some of our customers had to watch their tank gauges themselves and use our will-call service. That’s because when you use propane inconsistently, whether it’s because you come and go from your residence periodically, or you run a rental property, you may use a lot of propane one month and less at other times. Even things like how often you use your propane hearth can affect your use from month-to-month.

How Exactly Does a Propane Tank Monitor Work?

The Odata wireless tank monitors that PitStop offers tracks the level of propane in the tank in real-time and transmits your usage 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. Then, we’ll automatically schedule a delivery to ensure you don’t run out.

What are the Benefits of Getting a Propane Tank Monitor?

The real-time accuracy of our Odata wireless propane tank monitoring service makes monitoring your tank levels a breeze! And the benefits go beyond just ensuring on-time propane deliveries. Here are four great reasons to check out this service:

  1. Prevent expensive, inconvenient runouts: Running out of propane is more than just annoying. It can, unfortunately, be expensive. There’s the cost of the emergency fill-up, plus the required pressure and safety tests. And if you lose your heat as a result, there’s the added potential for frozen pipes and potential subsequent repairs needed to your home’s heating system.

    Even if your tank doesn’t hit completely empty, you’ll still have problems. When propane levels get too low, air can get into your system, which can lead to expensive damage. In general, you shouldn’t let your tank’s propane level go below 20%.

  2. Better manage your energy costs: Our Wi-Fi tank monitoring system includes a wireless app that makes it easy to see your tank levels in real time! This app also lets you track your usage 24/7/365—so you can see when you’re using more propane than usual and adjust so you can save.
  3. Streamline your to-do list: Just like with automatic deliveries, having a wireless tank monitor means you don’t have to worry about checking your tank gauge. It’s a task nobody likes to deal with in the dead of a cold winter season in Maine!
  4. Manage multiple tanks, at multiple properties, all in one place: This digital tool is a property manager’s best friend. Whether you’re tracking usage for your Airbnb or managing multiple rental properties or multifamily homes, Odata’s app puts all the info you need in the palm of your hand.
