Propane Tank Storage
Are you a seasonal griller? Someone who only uses their grill in the warmer months? If so, AmeriGas wants you to be prepped and ready to go as the temperatures start to fall. At AmeriGas we put safety first and safely storing your propane tank is a necessity when cleaning up your outside area for late fall and winter. Freezing temperatures do not pose a problem for propane; in fact, you don’t need to cover the tank outdoors. You can place the tanks on a piece of wood and store them uncovered, or covered, outdoors.
When storing your propane tank detached sheds and garages are best. These structures provide coverage for the tank while also supplying them with a well-ventilated area to stay until temperatures warm-up. Remember propane is heavier than air and it will settle so give it a chance to dissipate when you open the door. Never store your tank in your living areas or anywhere that is attached to your home.
You don’t want to store it too far away though! Make sure it is easily accessible in the event a power outage should occur and you need to run your propane powered generator.
