Propane Tank Size
There are many factors that go into choosing the size of tank most suited to your needs. Propane users have a constant load on their system, meaning there is propane being used throughout the year, regardless of outside temperature. For example, you may cook with propane in your home. You also may use propane to heat your water. These two examples are temperature independent, and don't necessarily contribute much to the overall amount of propane used during the year, especially if we experience a cold winter.
Listed below are some considerations which go into determining propane tank size.
Residential Propane Tanks - Sizing Factors
- Square footage of house
- Number of heaters, water heaters, etc. using propane
- Size of heaters, appliances, etc. (BTU Rating)

Commercial and Industrial Propane Tanks - Sizing Factors
- Usage purpose
- Heating for large warehouse or area
- Forklift or fleet refueling
- Commercial kitchen
