Fill Up Your Propane Tank in Early Fall
High Demand Later Could Drive Prices Up
We all know that a lot of cold days and nights lie ahead for us in the Hawkeye State. With that in mind, early fall is the perfect time to schedule your propane delivery so you can start the heating season off right with a full tank.
Here are four reasons why this is a smart idea.
- Demand drives up propane prices and that demand is usually highest when temperatures drop. Propane prices can also rise in the summer months, when people hit the road with their campers and RVs. Early fall squeezes between these periods of peak demand – meaning it’s often the best time to save money on your propane tank fill-ups.
- Although sudden cold snaps can happen in the early fall, these aren’t as common or as severe as the drops that can happen in late autumn and early winter – which means that odds are, there won’t be a sudden big rush on local propane supplies (and the rising prices that come with it).
- Your family will be prepared for any weather. A sudden change in weather can pinch propane supplies quickly, leading to possible delivery delays and occasionally no-heat emergencies as people scramble to fill their tanks. Schedule your propane tank refill in the early fall and you’ll enjoy the peace of mind knowing that your family will be safe and comfortable in any weather.
- You can enjoy all your home comforts. Whether you like to cook on your propane grill, cozy up to your propane fireplace, soak in your propane-powered hot tub, or lounge on your porch warmed by your propane patio heater, you’ll need to fill up on propane to enjoy the comforts of home in the months to come.
Securing Propane Supply
Getting propane delivered to your tank whenever you need it may seem fairly easy. But for propane suppliers, planning is more complex, and the process often begins a year before deliveries even reach customers.
Knowing the volume of fuel that each customer will need represents a key component in creating a supply plan, which includes storing away enough fuel. Customers can help out by contacting their propane dealer before winter arrives to discuss their anticipated propane needs.
Your propane dealer is committed to supplying you with reliable propane deliveries throughout the year. If you have questions or want to discuss your propane supply, please get in touch with your local propane dealer.
So, remember, early fall is a great time to fill your propane tank!
