Has Your Propane Usage Changed? Let Us Know.
January 16, 2023
Written By Adam Buckallew
Adding or removing a propane appliance will affect your system’s usage. Installing a propane stove or water heater, for example, will increase the volume of propane you need. Conversely, if you disconnect a propane appliance, your system will not need refilling as often. In both situations, it’s important to notify us of changes so we can:
- Accurately estimate your usage.
We use formulas based on past propane usage and weather patterns to predict when our Auto-Fill customers will need a delivery. If an appliance has been added to your home without notification, the additional consumption will throw off our calculations and could result in your tank unexpectantly running empty. Keeping us up to date on your propane requirements will allow us to ensure you always have enough propane to keep your home warm and comfortable.
- Verify the installation.
Propane system inspection is crucial in preventing potential safety concerns and other issues. Anytime you add or remove an appliance from service is an excellent opportunity to check the connections and review the system’s operational efficiency. Our certified propane professionals can conduct an inspection and verify that the installation is sound and that your system is operating properly.
- Help You Find Money-Saving Opportunities.
Propane is a great choice to power many appliances in your home, providing superb performance, efficiency and comfort. On top of those benefits, you may be able to offset the cost of installing new propane appliances. Many states offer incentives and rebates for the safe installation of propane water heaters, furnaces and other appliances. Your local MFA Oil office can help you identify these opportunities.
If you plan to add a propane appliance or remove one from your home, please contact your local MFA Oil office.
