Arranging a propane delivery and other winter preparation tips.

propane delivery Cumberland county, pa If you use propane to heat your home in the winter, your fuel usage drops substantially in the warmer months. Many Koppy’s Propane customers get caught off-guard when the temperatures take a dive in late fall because they don’t have sufficient propane to heat their homes.

It’s always best to start the winter with a full propane tank in Harrisburg, Mountain Top, Hazleton and other Pennsylvania cities and towns. Here are some ways to prepare your propane systems and appliances for the frosty weather.

1. Arrange a propane delivery right now.

If your propane tank is at or below 30 percent filled, you should contact us for a propane delivery right away. Not only do you risk a runout when your furnace turns on, but it’s also more difficult for mostly empty propane tanks to maintain optimal pressure when the temperature drops. Low pressure prevents the gas from vaporizing, increasing the possibility of heating loss.

It’s also a good idea to arrange your propane delivery in the fall before our phone lines light up with emergency no-heat calls. Of course, you can avoid all these risks by signing up for our free automatic delivery. We’ll handle the planning; you’ll never be without the fuel you need.

2. Prep your propane equipment for winter.

When inclement weather hits our part of the Keystone State, receiving a service visit or fuel delivery can be challenging. Here are a few steps you can take to get your propane equipment ready for the winter:

  1. Check your vents to be sure they are not clogged with foliage or debris.
  2. Mark the location of your propane tank with a flag or stake that will be visible in the snow.
  3. Have a good snow shovel and salt on hand so you can clear a path for our delivery driver after a snowstorm.

3. Service your heating system.

To ensure the best possible efficiency and reliable performance from your heating equipment, you should arrange annual furnace maintenance.

Having a professional HVAC technician service your heating system pays dividends. It will improve your fuel efficiency, so you’ll need less fuel to keep your family warm. It will also reduce the number of repairs you need and extend your furnace’s lifespan.

If your current heating system is past its prime, we can recommend an efficient propane-fired furnace replacement that will keep you reliably comfortable and lower your annual fuel use.
