Whether you get scheduled deliveries or prefer to call for your fuel, there are a few things you can do to help ensure that you receive your propane throughout the winter without any delays.

  1. Keep your fuel tank unobstructed. Remove leaves, branches and other debris from the area so drivers can access it easily.
  2. After a snowfall, please clear a 12- to 24-inch-wide path to your tank and clear off the top of the tank.
  3. Remove any icicles that are hanging from your roof over your outside tank so they do not fall and break equipment.
  4. Make sure your driveway gets plowed after a storm. Delivery trucks need a 10- to 15-foot-wide path to maneuver. Safety regulations prohibit your propane company from delivering on slippery or unsafe surfaces.
  5. For safety’s sake, schedule a gas systems safety inspection on your appliances once a year.
