Littlerock's Propane Supply FAQs
Is It Normal For My Oil Tank To Give Off An Odor?
No, a properly functioning oil tank should not produce odors. If you notice an oil smell in the building it may be a sign that there is a problem with your tank, the piping or your heating appliance. You should contact Acme Fuel or Capital Heating & Cooling about this.
When Is It Time To Replace my Oil Tank?
Home heating oil tanks last a long time. They are made of high-grade steel, fiberglass, or sometimes double wall tanks of plastic and steel, and can last for decades. Maintenance of the tanks and inspections prolong the life of the tank. Give Acme Fuel a call to discuss the potential need to replace your tank. We can provide advice on how to evaluate the tank, and replacement options.
Should I Be Concerned About My Propane Tank In Extreme Temperatures?
The short answer is yes, propane can technically freeze at -306.4 degrees Fahrenheit (or -188 degrees Celsius). But what is more likely to happen than your propane tank freezing is that your propane can no longer vaporize. When the temperature gets below -44 degrees Fahrenheit (-42.2222 degrees Celsius) the propane will no longer boil. You can fix it by getting a propane tank heater. This being said, don’t worry too much about extreme cold since Little Rock, Washington doesn’t typically get colder than 35 degrees Fahrenheit. And in hot weather conditions you should simply avoid leaving your propane tank in direct sunlight as the hotter the tank gets, the more pressure there will be inside.
