Plenty of our customers enjoy our automatic propane delivery service to eliminate the worry of a run-out. But automatic deliveries aren’t the best solution for everyone. If your propane or heating oil usage isn’t consistent, we can’t use our algorithm to best predict your needs.
You may be one of our many customers who only use their Vermont home seasonally or on weekends—or maybe use it as a rental property. All those things mean your fuel use fluctuates. And it means you’ll really appreciate the real-time accuracy of our Otodata wireless propane tank monitoring service.
If you’ve never run out of propane, you may not realize what a hassle it can be. There’s the inconvenience, of course. Then there’s the cost of an emergency fill up, plus a pressure and leak test for safety. And even if your tank isn’t completely empty, you could still have problems. When propane levels get too low, air can get into your system, which can lead to expensive damage. In general, you shouldn’t let your tank’s propane level go below 20%.
Watching your tank yourself isn’t hard, but it’s also easy to forget to check your tank levels. This is made especially hard if you aren’t using your home full-time, or if you have to make a trip to check on a rental property (or count on tenants to check for you).
Wireless tank monitors track the level of propane or heating oil in your home’s fuel tank in real-time and transmits your usage via wireless cellular technology. When the tank gauge reaches a pre-set level, the monitor alerts us—and you—directly via the wireless mobile app.
In addition to timely alerts, the app gives you even more control and insight. You can use it to easily track and adjust your monthly energy consumption—and better save on energy costs.
If you manage rental properties, a tank monitor can be a game changer. Whether you handle long-term rentals or short-stay properties, or even an Airbnb, unpredictable usage that varies from week to week or month to month makes it hard to gauge usage. Plus, constantly checking tank levels is inconvenient.
Our tank monitor service can save you the expense and hassle of fuel runouts that can ruin a guest’s stay and take the guesswork out of knowing when to order fuel for different locations. Track everything and get alerts with the app!
Tank monitors are easy to install, and we can have you ready to go in a matter of minutes! Contact us today to find out more about the benefits of wireless tank monitoring and how we can get you set up 100% hassle-free.
