Residential Propane Delivery: 5 things you must know

Propane delivery

You’re right when it comes to choosing propane for your home’s needs. Because it’s efficient at its job, fairly affordable in pricing and friendlier to the environment than other available fuel sources. But then, are you right when it comes to choosing a propane gas delivery company to handle your propane requirements? Here’s a blog with 5 recommended facts to consider, when screening propane gas companies for your home’s fuel needs.

 

 What are the prices and fees?

All propane gas companies will undoubtedly offer you the same product. Propane. However, when it comes to pricing, you’ll find no two businesses will ever offer you the same deal. Check out as many propane gas delivery companies as you can, for propane prices. Also ask them about secondary costs like cost of installation, termination fees, and any other fees that are connected with their services. Look at the payment options offered – you’re bound to find some interesting plans that will ensure you get what you want while keeping your expense closer to your budget.

 

What are the delivery modes?

Imagine a scenario where your tank runs empty in the middle of winter. Propane delivery modes play a vital role in ensuring your tank remains stocked not only through every season, but through unforeseen circumstances like fuel shortages. You have two primary ways of delivery to choose from:

Automatic Propane Delivery frees you from the responsibility of routinely checking your tank levels and calling up your Propane Delaware County supplier for a refill. This is because the company will use advanced software to estimate your home’s propane utilization patterns across the year and then schedule deliveries at the right time periods, well in time before your tank runs empty.

Will-Call Propane Delivery will require you to monitor your propane tank levels and then call up for a refill when your propane reaches a 30% level. In the case of Will-Call Delivery, you’ll need to consider factors like weather conditions and propane shortages so that you place your order well in advance.

 

Is the supplier licensed and insured?

When searching for propane gas companies or businesses associated with propane tank delivery Philadelphia, check if they have the requisite license to operate in your state. Also check if the business has its workers insured. A license holding supplier is bound to comply with stipulated laws and regulations pertaining to propane storage, which ensures better safety. And a workers’ insurance coverage will free you of liabilities in the event of an accident. If the supplier has general liability insurance, this will add an additional layer of protection by ensuring you receive compensation should any damage be caused to your property.

 

Do they offer maintenance services?

Having a single propane gas company to handle both propane supply and propane equipment repair and maintenance can be advantageous. It’s a bundle that will get you the convenience of dealing with a single contact and of course, the comfort of discounts that comes as a result of the additional business you’re providing. However, do check with multiple propane gas companies about the deals they’re prepared to offer and settle only when you find the best combo rate coming your way.

 

Do they have a reliable reputation?

A propane gas delivery company can be licensed, affordably priced, flexible to your needs and yet be off the mark, when it comes to providing good quality services. This is where the ‘reputation’ factor comes in. Make sure to check customer reviews of every supplier who makes it to your consideration list. Also ask people whom you know, if they have any experience of ordering propane from any of your shortlisted suppliers. Remember, it’s worth playing the game a little while longer until you come across a name that’s dependable, appreciated and recognized within your community.

 

Finding a propane gas delivery company or propane tank delivery company in Philadelphia who’s worth your time and money may not be easy.
