What size propane tank do I need for my home or local commercial business?

This is where our knowledge and experience come into play. We’ll thoroughly discuss with you everything that factors into the size of your propane tank, like the size of your house, whether you will be using it for whole-house heating, how many propane appliances you have, and whether you plan to be adding more in the future.

Here are the standard tank sizes, and what propane usage they suit best, so you’ll have an idea of what you should get:

  • 20- to 100-Pound Tanks
  • Smaller propane cylinders and tanks do a lot for you, at home and on the road! These size tanks can power your propane BBQ grill, outdoor fireplace or firepit, camp stove, insect trap, portable generator, and deck and patio heaters. In your RV, they can provide heat, water heating, gas for your stove, and power for refrigeration.

  • 60-Gallon Tanks
  • These are used for small space heaters and other small propane appliances.

  • 120-Gallon Tanks
  • Do you use propane for cooking, drying clothes, heating water, or for a propane fireplace? This may be the right size for you. However, it is not large enough if you’ll be using propane to heat your home.

  • 250-Gallon Tanks
  • This may be the size tank you need if you have three or more propane appliances such as water heaters, ranges, and clothes dryers. It’s one of our most popular tank sizes available for small residential homes, however it may not be adequate whole-house heating of a large multi-story or multi-family residence.

  • 320- to 500-Gallon Tanks
  • These tanks are used for large residential homes—perfect for whole home heating year ’round.

  • 1,000-Gallon Tanks
  • While these are most commonly used in commercial and industrial applications, they are also used at large residential estates.

Should I lease my propane tank instead of buying it?

When you purchase your propane tank, you have to shell out potentially thousands of dollars to buy and install the tank. Then, because you own it, you are responsible for professional maintenance and repairs, and the expenses that go with those. But by leasing your propane tank from Pico Propane and Fuels, all of that work, hassle and expense is gone! We handle the installation, maintenance and repairs, which means you can be assured that your propane tank is safe and in good working order.
