It can be a real pain walking to your propane tank in cold weather to check your propane levels. You don’t always have the time (or willpower to put on your winter gloves) to check your propane tank gauge.

But, the fact that you use more propane in the winter makes it easy to worry about monitoring your tank levels.

With a propane monitoring system, you won’t have to worry about running out of propane and blocking off time to check your levels. You can check your levels while you’re on vacation, out shopping, or from the warmth of your own home.

Here are benefits of tracking your propane usage with a propane monitoring system:

Know how much propane you have at all times

A propane monitoring system shows you real-time propane levels via an online app, a far more advanced tracking method than manually checking your standard propane tank gauge.

The amount of propane left in your tank will never be a mystery. You can check your propane levels at any time from your:

  • Phone
  • Tablet
  • Computer

With data about propane levels at your fingertips, you can track your monthly propane usage at any time. You can also use that information to manage your budget.

Schedule deliveries that work with your budget

Once you’ve got a good grasp on your monthly usage, you can schedule your monthly deliveries around your propane needs.

Seeing your propane use in real-time helps you budget for your propane bills and other monthly expenses. You won’t have to guess since you can predict when you’ll need refills.

A more routine and foreseeable refill schedule will give you more peace of mind. You’ll never have to rush out to your propane tank last minute to check your levels and call for an emergency refill again. Even better, you’ll never have to worry about surprise fees that often come with an emergency refill.

Check your propane levels even when you’re traveling

You don’t need to be right next to your propane tank to check your propane tank levels.

A propane monitoring systems stores your propane tank data online so you can check your propane levels at any place with internet.

Let’s say you’re away from home—on vacation or on a business trip—and you leave your heat on at home. You don’t have to worry about your propane running out if you forgot to check your tank level before you left.

Since your propane levels will be tracked from your propane providers end and visible to you from anywhere, you can request a refill if your tank levels seem too low to risk waiting. No one needs to touch your tank in this scenario (except when your provider refills your tank).

Never worry about running out of propane with a propane monitoring system

With a propane monitor, you never have to worry about running on E—any one of your computers or smart devices can act as your digital gas gauge.  

Also, a propane company that offers a propane monitoring system, like Kauffman Gas, will be able to predict and note when you need refills.

You can make the propane monitoring system more convenient by pairing it with automatic propane delivery. If you use more propane than expected, your propane monitoring system will alert your providers when your tank hits low volumes. They can make their automatic delivery, and you can rest assured your tank will always have propane to fuel your home.
