What You Need to Know about Aboveground Propane Tanks

Most of the cost of an aboveground propane tank is in the purchase of the tank itself, and the price of the tank will vary depending on how much propane you want it to hold. The installation process for an aboveground propane tank is straightforward, and if you live in an area that is prone to flooding, an aboveground tank is your safest option.


What You Need to Know about Underground Propane Tanks

An underground propane tank installation is more costly upfront than an aboveground propane tank installation, mostly because of excavation and additional labor. These special requirements mean an underground propane tank installation can be roughly double the cost of an aboveground propane tank installation. An underground propane tank can also be more costly to maintain.


Important Considerations When Installing Propane Tanks

There are many things to consider when selecting a company to install your aboveground or underground propane tank. These important considerations include:

  • Whether the company and technicians are licensed
  • What the correct sizing of the tank should be
  • Applying correct distance rules
