It’s easy to underestimate your propane usage when the weather starts to get warmer, since the usual suspects for propane use (your furnace, space heaters, and fireplace, for example) are not typically in use.
But there are plenty of propane appliances that continue to get a workout during the late spring and summer months: propane water heaters, for example, or propane outdoor living equipment such as patio heaters, built-in grills and pool heaters.
If you get a propane bill that’s higher than you expected during a warm-weather month, you might think you have a propane leak somewhere in your system. If that’s the case, it’s better to be safe than sorry: follow propane safety instructions to rule out the problem.
Most of the time, however, you won’t have a leak – you just underestimated your propane usage! Keep in mind estimates like these when you’re calculating the amount of propane you’ll need in the coming months (all values approximate):
As you can see, those propane gallons can add up quickly, and if you’re not careful, you might use more than you think – or even run out of propane at some point over the summer!
