Using a Standby Propane Generator? Here’s Why You Need a Tank Monitor

Posted by James Callow on Tue, Apr 20, 2021 @ 12:54 PM

Are you a Budget Propane Ontario customer currently using a standby generator to give you that little boost of power when you experience a power outage? Here’s why you should consider a Propane Tank Monitor, it will greatly improve your propane deliveries!

That’s because standby generators typically kick in during a power outage, and during that time propane consumption is random and inconsistent. Unfortunately, this has an adverse impact on our systems ability to forecast future consumption. 

As a result, it’s possible our forecasting system won’t be as accurate as they typically are. This could have an impact on the timing of your future deliveries, meaning they won’t be quite as seamless as they should be. 

With a Propane Tank Monitor, however, customers with a standby generator will have seamless access to propane deliveries. Our dispatch team will be notified when low fuel levels are reached on your propane tank and standby generator, and we will come and fill your propane tank up before you run out!

Never again will you have to look at your propane gauge or worry about your propane levels.

What is a propane tank monitor? 

Budget Propane Ontario’s Propane Tank Monitor offers you a more comfortable, convenient and stress-free way to receive your commercial or residential propane deliveries - as, and when, you need them. 

The Propane Tank Monitor works by sending an alert directly to Budget Propane Ontario when your propane levels are running low. This automated approach to propane delivery means once we get that notification, our team will seamlessly come and refill your tank. 

With a Propane Tank Monitor, your residential property or commercial business will always have propane when you need it. 

In addition, the Propane Tank Monitor will also send you weekly notifications via email that keep you informed about the current level of your propane tank. No longer will you have to spend time going outside and checking the gauge of your propane tank to see how much fuel you have left.
