How Long Will Your Propane Tank Last?

Ensuring the safety and reliability of your home propane tank

propane tanks Jefferson County, WV If you own a propane tank in Jefferson County or elsewhere in the Eastern Panhandle region, maintaining it is essential to safeguard your household’s comfort and safety. This critical storage equipment could provide fuel for your home’s heating, hot water equipment, stove, dryer and many other appliances and amenities.

It can be easy to disregard your propane tank, which is often out of sight on a day-to-day basis. However, when you own a tank (as opposed to leasing one from your propane company), its upkeep is on your shoulders. The team at Roach Energy can provide some guidance on warning signs that your propane tank is nearing retirement.

What’s a home propane tank’s lifespan?

Stationary propane tanks that power a home’s comfort systems and appliances are built to last. When properly maintained, aboveground tanks will serve a household for 30 years or more. Underground tanks may only last about two decades.

Some variables that can determine precisely how long your tank will last include the quality of material and craftsmanship in the manufacturing process, how often it faces severe weather events and how well it’s maintained.

How can I tell if my propane tank is failing?

It’s not always easy to tell if an older propane tank is nearing retirement. Excessive rusting, discoloration and corrosion are standard warning signs. (Some rusting is normal for an outdoor fuel tank.)

If you smell gas near your tank, you should immediately get out of the area and extinguish any ignition sources, like grills, cigarettes, firepits and candles. Contact Roach Energy and emergency services to address the issue.

As a general rule, you will need a trained propane service technician to determine the overall health of your propane tank. Roach Energy is available to inspect your tank and advise if you need to replace it.

We also offer propane tank leasing that can relieve you of the stress of having to maintain and repair your own tank.
