Propane can fuel a home discreetly, almost invisibly, from underground tanks. Once a propane tank is buried, only a small dome is visible –mere inches above the ground. The dome houses valves, gauges, and regulators, allowing for easy servicing and refilling. Even large-capacity tanks can be installed with minimal visual intrusion, while still providing the clean, efficient comfort of propane energy.
The TankPropane tanks are constructed of heavy steel and are specially painted with a mastic coating to prevent corrosion. Environmentally friendly and requiring no maintenance, a propane tank will typically last for 30 to 40 years. Single-family homes can be fueled by tanks of varying sizes, depending on the demand. Smaller 100-gallon tanks provide energy for appliances, while 1,000+-gallon tanks can fuel very large homes with heat for the house, swimming pools and hot tubs. Generally, 500-gallon tanks easily accommodate an average four-bedroom home.
ExcavationExcavation is usually small – approximately four feet wide by 12 feet long by five feet deep. Because of the smaller dimensions, excavation costs are minimal.
