Tank Information

Not sure what size tank you need? There are many factors that help to determine the correct size tank for your needs, such as how many BTU you are using, square footage of your house, quality of the insulation, and number of appliances that use propane, just to name a few.

When you become a customer of U.P. Propane, we provide you with one of our tanks at no charge. We will come to your residence and install our tank at no cost to you. You can keep the tank as long as you need it at no charge. If you'd rather, we also sell new and refurbished tanks in all of the sizes here. If you'd prefer to own your own tank, we'd be happy to sell you one.

100# Cylinders

100# Cylinders are most common for temporary usage situations, especially at hunting camps. These cylinders come equipped with an automatic switch over regulator. This means that when one tank is empty, it automatically switches to the other tank, and an indicator tells you that the tank is empty and needs replacing. Cylinders can be exchanged or filled at our office, or they can delivered to your desired location.
