Predicting how much propane you’re going to need this winter isn’t an easy task.
There are so many factors to work into trying to make that estimation. You have to consider the size of your home, its energy efficiency, the weather and the condition of your home’s propane heating system.
So while you can’t make a pinpoint prediction of how much propane you’ll use this winter, you can still make a reasonable estimate that can help you plan your budget in the coming months without any big surprises.
<3>How much propane do propane appliances use?
In your Delmarva home, you may have more than just your furnace being fueled by propane. You could also have a propane water heater, fireplace and range or cooktop.
So we’ve put together a handy guide with average yearly usage rates for common propane appliances. Remember that energy use for these appliances usually increases in winter months. If it’s a bitter, cold winter, you can use up to 300-400 gallons between November and March alone!
|Propane appliance||Annual gallons of propane used|
|Propane water heater||250|
|Propane stove or range||35|
These estimates show just how fast your propane supply can be used during winter. That’s why you need a propane delivery company you can count on.
