How To Avoid a Propane Run-out

Wireless Propane Tank Monitoring for Homes and Businesses

fuel tank monitor new yorkHave you ever run out of propane? If so, you know what a hassle it can be:

  1. There’s the inconvenience, of course.
  2. There’s the cost of an emergency fill up—plus a pressure and leak test for safety.
  3. Even if your tank isn’t completely empty, you could still experience some 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%.

Tank Monitoring & Automatic Delivery Are The Perfect Pair

Plenty of our customers enjoy our automatic propane delivery service to eliminate the worry of a run-out. But automatic deliveries aren’t the best solution for everyone. If your propane usage isn’t very consistent, we can’t rely on our algorithm to best predict your needs.

And many of our customers travel often, or maybe they only use their Hudson Valley home seasonally or on weekends—which means their propane use fluctuates. They appreciate the real-time accuracy of our Otodata wireless propane tank monitoring service.

How Does a Tank Monitor Work?

Wireless tank monitors track the level of propane in your tank in real-time and transmit 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.

In addition to timely alerts, the app gives you even more control and insight. You can use it to easily track and adjust your monthly energy consumption—and save on energy costs.

Tank Monitoring is a Smart Move for Rental Properties

If you manage rental properties, a tank monitor can be a game changer. Whether you handle long-term rentals or short-stay properties, or even an Airbnb, unpredictable usage makes it hard to gauge usage. And constantly checking tank levels is inconvenient.

A tank monitor can save you the expense and hassle of fuel run-outs that can ruin a guest’s stay, and take the guesswork out of knowing when to order fuel for different locations. Track everything and get alerts with the app!

A wireless tank monitor is easy to install, and we can have you ready to go in a matter of minutes!
