Although it may not feel like it, winter is right around the corner! Breeze through winter like a pro this year with our top winter weather guidelines.

KEEP IT CLEAN.
To ensure the safety of your family, or anyone entering your home for that matter, its super important to keep your driveway and sidewalk free of snow and ice. And don’t forget to take an upcoming delivery into consideration when shoveling so your driver is able to reach your tank! Remember propane delivery trucks are much wider than your car so be sure to double check your driveway before your delivery arrives.

SERIOUSLY, THOUGH.
Just like your driveways and sidewalks, it’s also extremely important to keep your equipment and vents clear of ice and snow. Failure to keep your propane tank and equipment clear may result in a gas leak, while vents blocked by snow and ice will trap gas fumes in your home—and nobody wants that!

PUT A PIN ON IT.
Have an underground tank? No problem! We can still fill your tank underground tank, all we need is to know where it is, which can be hard after a snow storm. Experts suggest using a flag or piece of wood to mark your tank so you don’t have to worry about whether or not we can find your tank.

FILL’R UP.
Make sure you have enough propane in your tank, especially before a winter storm. Our experts recommend calling us or ordering online once your tank reaches 30%.

SPREAD ‘EM OUT.
Give your wallet some relief by enrolling in SmartPay! Rather than pay your bill in one lump sum when you receive a delivery, SmartPay allows you to spread your propane costs over the course of the year. You’ll also enjoy a per gallon discount when you enroll in SmartPay! What’s better than that?
