Propane is an excellent choice for powering your home or business, but it doesn’t last forever. Eventually, you’ll need your propane tank refilled, but it can be difficult to know when your propane tank is running low.

Three Signs You Need to Refill Your Propane Tank

To help you out, our team here at Bumgarner Propane has put together this list of some of the most common signs that you need to refill your propane tank:

  1. The gauge on the tank is low. Most propane tanks have a gauge that indicates how much propane is left in the tank. Like the gauge in your car that lets you know you’re low on fuel, there is a needle on the propane gauge that will be close to empty when it’s time for a refill service.
  2. Your appliances aren’t as hot as before. When the amount of propane in your tank is low, your appliances will have a harder time getting as hot as they used to. For example, instead of a blue flame on your stove, the flame may be yellow or orange, indicating that you’re low on propane.
  3. It’s been a while since your last refill. It’s a good idea to keep track of how often your propane tank gets refilled, as the frequency for refills varies between households or businesses due to different power needs. If it’s been a while since your last refill, look back to how frequently you typically need to refill and use that as an indication that you may need more propane.
