Propane Use

Hi trout,

Recouping cost is I think the reason why so few people jumped on the opportunity to go NG. Plus, it isn't that big a savings and it locked you into an agreement. LP is great in that you have competition. I'm still upset, however, that it seem my unlocked tank got drained by thieves. It is simply impossible with my usage level that the tank went to the level it did. And there is no leak! Watch out. Keep them locked.

No never had a problem in the 10 plus years we have been using them. Just follow the install instructions, plus it has a safey cut off that can sense the lack of oxygen in the areaand will shut off automatically. We do not use them at bedtime. We turn them off and let the electric system take over. We have an electric water heater.But like I said we cook, grill and heat with the LP. That is why we did not sign up for the NG thing. We could never recoup our costs.

Trout,

Amazing on a 150 tank. It makes me think again that someone tapped my tank which was unlocked. Those vent-free log stoves appear to be very efficient. I still have one in the box. Do you worry at all about oxygen depletion or CO2?

Our house is just over 1450 sqft. We have electric heat and propane vent free gas logs. Gas cook stove and gas grill outside all hooked to a 150 gal tank. We fill up once a year. The gas logs are on most of the day time hours and turned off at night. The gas logs are very efficient.

Propane Use

Post by Paul2CV on Mon Jan 16, 2012 11:23 pm

Hi Forum,

I'm trying to get a sense of how much propane most folks go through in the winter. A tank, 2, 3? Obviously, house size matters too.
