You’re probably familiar with the portable propane tanks you use to fire up your grill. Usually, you go for a 20-pound cylinder, whether you get it refilled or exchange your empty tank for a full one. But when it comes to residential propane tanks, what’s the right size? Whether you’re a new homeowner who has never run a home with propane, or you’re thinking of making the switch to propane, the team at Jack Corse can help you understand all your options when it comes to propane tank sizes.
Unlike portable tanks, which are measured in pounds, residential propane tank size is usually given as their water capacity volume in gallons. Since propane is stored in a liquid state under pressure, it needs room to expand into a vapor. That’s why propane tanks are “filled” to 80% of its water capacity. For example, a 120-gallon tank will hold approximately 100 gallons of propane when completely full.
To know what size tank you need, you need to know how you will use your propane—just for cooking, heating water, heating your home, and more. There are a lot of variables to consider, and the pros at Jack Corse are here to help you take the guesswork out of calculating the best size tank for your needs:
