Considerations-Propane Gas
You want a reliable company

So, you’re ready to start saving by switching to propane gas for heating your home, but with so many propane gas companies to choose from, what questions do you need to ask in order to make the best choice? Like choosing a quality and affordable cell phone plan, you want a reliable company that looks out for your family’s well-being, as well as your wallet. Here are some essential tips to help you stay informed and be prepared when choosing a propane gas company in Jacksonville, FL.

Safety record

Safety should be at the top of the list when scouting propane gas companies in Northeast FL, after all, you’ll be working together on a regular basis to fill gas tanks, undertake repairs and discuss product installations. An honorable company will be able to provide references on request, from regulatory agencies that can attest to their safety practices. Ask about safety programs you can join and whether the company is enrolled or involved in any themselves- this initiative and openness exemplifies that they prioritize clients safety by staying educated and confident in their responsibilities as a company.

  • How far is the company located from your home? This distance is crucial in case of an emergency.
  • Does the company have a 24/7 customer service phone line for acute responsiveness and customer care?

Be ready to discuss propane prices

And most importantly, know your budget! Keep in mind that pricing differs region-to-region due to factors such as location, climate and usage. Get an idea of how you want to implement propane gas in your everyday life so you can discuss service plans, like whether you prefer automatic delivery or fixed pricing. Check prices at different companies and compare quotes before making a final decision. A helpful starting point would be to check US Energy Information Agency market price trends, then see how the quotes stack up.

  • Does the company require other fees to be paid? Ask about fees not included in the service charge.
  • Is it smarter for your budget to pay per delivery/maintenance or would you rather have set monthly payments and services?

Safety Tips

Tip 5: Don't run out of gas!

Serious safety hazards, such as fire or explosion can result. If your storage tank gets empty or depleted, air and moisture can enter. This can cause a build-up of rust inside the tank. Rust can decrease the concentration of the odor of propane, making it harder to smell. If your propane tank runs out of gas, any pilot lights on your appliances will go out. This can be extremely dangerous if not handled properly.
