Getting Propane, what do I need to know?
I need educated! We heat 100% with a wood boiler. The wood boiler and my husband are both getting old. We need to add propane. I have no clue where to start. There was propane in this house before but there is no tank here now.
I am in West Michigan in the Manistee National Forest. It gets COLD. My husband thinks he can repair the boiler when it's gets warm enough however he wants a propane back up. I am faced with many questions. What size tank would we need to heat with propane for a year? Does it cost more to have a smaller tank and have it filled more often? My thinking is he is not going to be able to cut wood much longer as he has just been deemed "disabled". Buy or rent a tank? Is there a certain time of year that is best to get your gas. Could somebody please tell me what questions I need to ask when I start talking to the gas companies? Thanks!
