You know all the great things propane can do for you. But if you want to use it in your home, you need a propane tank.
Midwest Gas can take care of that, making the process easy. We will do a tank swap and all the safety checks that come with it.
We sell, lease and install a wide range of propane tank sizes, so you can choose the right one for your home and your propane needs. We’ve put together this guide to propane tank sizes to give you an idea of what you’ll need to know when you meet with us to discuss your propane tank installation.
100-pound tanks. We lease and install two of this size of cylinder, placing them in a fixed, permanent spot. This is for homes with only one low-usage propane appliance, such as a range, fire logs, a space heater or a grill.
120-gallon tanks. These tanks typically store enough propane for homes that have two or more propane appliances, like ranges, clothes dryers, space heaters or fireplaces. These tanks are not large enough for whole-house heating.
250-gallon tanks. You may need one of these tanks if you have three or more propane appliances, such as water heaters, ranges and clothes dryers. But they are not large enough for whole-house heating.
500-gallon tanks. If you heat your home with propane, this is the size tank you will likely need. It can handle both whole-house heating and propane appliances.
1,000-gallon tanks. These tanks are largely used in commercial or industrial applications. But they are also appropriate for large homes that use propane for heating as well as high-usage equipment like pool heaters.
When you own your propane tank, you have the freedom to choose your propane provider, and to switch to another provider if you want better prices or service.
But with that freedom comes responsibility and expenses. Not only do you have to pay for installing your tank, but you have to pay for the tank itself. And from then on, all maintenance and repair costs are paid by you.
When you lease your propane tank from Midwest Gas, you don’t have the up-front purchase cost, and you don’t have to worry about maintenance or repairs, because we take care of that.
And as a Midwest Gas customer, you know that your propane tank refills will be prompt, reliable and safe every time.
You can get your small propane cylinders, like the ones you use for your grill, RV or portable generator, refilled at the main office, located at 2557 Alexandria Pike in Highland Heights, Kentucky, during our regular business hours of 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. We also sell 20-, 30-, 40-, and 100-pound propane cylinders, forklift cylinders, and propane fittings and hoses at that location.
We charge per gallon or per pound, not a flat rate like other companies, which can save you money.
The Midwest Gas refill service is much easier than dealing with the national propane-cylinder-exchange companies and the big box stores. You can keep using your tank and we’ll fill it as long as it’s certified and in good condition. We are also one of the only places in Northern Kentucky that can recertify DOT cylinders.
