With winter having North Carolina in its grip, we’re likely to be seeing some cold, icy weather.
While we don’t have to worry about big snowfalls like our friends up north do, winter can present some challenges when it comes to propane delivery. We’ve put together a few tips so you can be assured of getting your propane from Parker Gas when you need it.
We realize that clearing your driveway and pathways after a winter storm may not be your idea of a good time. But if our delivery trucks can’t get down your driveway or access your propane tank safely, we won’t be able to make a delivery.
Our trucks need to have ice cleared from your driveway to a width of at least 10 feet. Sanding or salting the driveway is helpful, especially if your driveway is on an incline. Propane delivery trucks are larger and heavier than cars and delivery vans, and we need to be able to safely navigate your driveway.
While removing ice or applying de-icer to your driveway and walkways, don’t forget to also make sure we can safely get to your propane tank. We need a safe path at least one foot wide from the driveway to your propane tank.
If you’re going to be taking a vacation this winter, make arrangements for having your driveway cleared while you are gone.
Because propane is a liquid, it shrinks when temperatures drop and that can reduce the pressure inside your tank to a point that it may not be able to reach the gas burners in your home. Keeping your tank full helps keep positive pressure in your tank. With our Automatic Delivery, you can be sure you’ll never run low on propane. Want even more peace of mind? We offer wireless propane tank monitoring.
