Questions To Get The Right Tank

When you get your propane tank from Poore’s Propane, you also get the knowledge and experience of our propane experts who will thoroughly discuss your home and how you use propane. Some questions we may ask:

  • How big is your home?
  • Do you use propane for whole-house heating?
  • What propane appliances do you have in your home?
  • Are you planning to add propane appliances in the future?

All of that information helps us determine what size propane tank will best suit your home.

So that you have an idea about what size propane tank you may need, we’ve put together a guide to common propane tank sizes and what they’re used for:

100-pound propane tank: This small tank is for when you only use propane in one appliance such as a range or fireplace.

120-gallon propane tank: If you use propane in one or two appliances, such as a range or clothes dryer, this might be your tank.

150-gallon propane tank: This tank size can run two or three low-Btu appliances like water heaters and fireplaces or hearths. But it is not large enough for whole-house heating.

250-gallon propane tank: This tank isn’t large enough for whole-house heating but is instead for when you have three or more propane appliances such as water heaters and wall or space heaters.

500-gallon propane tank: If you use propane to heat your home, you’ll need a tank of this size.

1,000-gallon (or larger) propane tank: While this size is mostly used in commercial and industrial applications, it is also used at large residences that use propane for heating and several other uses like cooking, water heating, fireplaces, and pool and spa heating.
