Home Propane Tank Requirements
Homeowners need to be aware of the many propane tank requirements for residential properties when having a tank installed. Distance requirements are just one of the many specifications that can apply to all propane tanks and their connections to the surrounding area. For example, there should not be another propane tank installed close by.
Our service department will work with you directly to ensure your propane tank is installed in a safe location on your property. The tank should be located a good distance from the house. The tank should also have enough room around it to ensure we can safely and quickly refill the propane when it begins to run low. There should be a minimum of 5 feet of space from the relief valve in any direction. Lastly, the propane tank should be kept well away from any source of ignition, openings to vents, or air intakes. Our specially trained technicians will ensure this is the case.
Home Propane Tank Inspection
All home-based propane tank units must undergo an inspection. Our service technicians will examine whether or not the tank has been appropriately placed a safe distance from various obstacles and your home itself. This inspection is often referred to as a “gas check” inspection. We perform this check when we provide propane for the first time in a new or existing propane-powered home. We will always check for leaks, especially if someone runs completely out of propane before they even realize it has happened. In fact, our technicians are legally required to perform a system check each time we refill a propane tank to ensure a gas leak was not the reason for running out of fuel.
At Northwest Propane, our expert technicians know exactly what they are looking for while performing a comprehensive tank inspection. We move through a checklist with a sharp eye and a keen mind, ensuring there are no problems or potential reasons to worry. Your family should never have to be stressed about a propane tank on your property.
Propane Tank Installation Cost
Propane, as you may know, is a gas that turns into a liquid when under moderate pressure. For this reason, propane storage tanks are typically pressurized. That’s why so many homeowners opt for an outdoor tank. These containers come in a wide range of sizes – usually 120, 250, 500, and 1,000 gallons. Underground tanks can range from 500 to 1,000 gallons in size.
To get your pressurized propane tank properly installed, you’ll want to rely on a professional service. Propane tank installation is certainly not a do-it-yourself type of home improvement job. Safety regulations, leasing contracts, and further paperwork make it a complicated task. If you choose to work with Northwest Propane, we can explain all of this information before moving forward with the installation. We want you and your family to feel safe with an outdoor tank, and we work to make that safety a reality.
