So, you’ve finally decided to switch over to using propane to fuel or heat your home or office. Now that you’ll be using a propane tank of considerable size instead of a smaller tank for just fueling the grill, you’ll need a propane tank installation.
Before scheduling the installation, you’ll want to decide where you want it to be installed on your property. Here are a few tips on how to choose the location for your propane tank installation:
- Consider your property grading: It’s important to remember that a new propane tank must be installed on level ground and not on an incline or uneven ground to deliver the best and safest results. You’ll want to consider the grading of your property to find the flattest part for your chosen location.
- Safety first: You will also want to put safety first when choosing the location for your propane tank installation. Per safety and legal protocols, your tank should be installed at least 10 feet away from flammable materials, 10 feet away from the side of a building, and outdoors in a well-ventilated area.
- Consider the accessibility: Another important thing to consider when choosing the location for your propane tank is how easily accessible it will be for installation, maintenance, and refills. You have to remember that the delivery truck will have to have easy access to the location and tank or at least be able to reach it with a hose.
