Important Information about Your Fuel Deliveries

Household changes

Posted: February 29, 2016

Do you get automatic deliveries from Parker Gas? If you do, then you probably know that we compile important information that allows us to schedule your deliveries accurately and always keep enough propane in your tank. This information includes: the size of your home and its insulation, your heating system’s efficiency level, the size of your fuel tank and the number of people who live in your home.

Having this information allows us to calculate your “burn rate,” or the number of gallons you historically use. We supplement this further by keeping track of degree-days—which indicate how cold the weather has been—because this affects fuel use too.

That’s why it’s important to let us know if something changes in your household. We can then adjust your burn rate accordingly to prevent the risk of a run-out. Here are examples of lifestyle changes that can make you use more (or less) fuel.

Please contact us if any of these situations applies (or may soon apply) to your household. When you communicate with us, we can make sure that you and your family keep warm all winter long.

If your needs are more unpredictable or vary significantly from month to month, you might want to consider asking us about Comfort Guard. This is a paid service that uses an automatic tank level monitoring system that lets Parker Gas wirelessly track your fuel level so we can deliver your propane whenever you need it.

This system will provide you with an even more accurate delivery service and greater peace of mind. You can read more about Comfort Guard here.

In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns about your delivery service, just let us know and we’ll be glad to help.
