What size propane tank?
Would anyone like to please add their experience with what size buried propane tank we might need?
New home 4300 sq.ft on 3 levels (1000 in basement), 2 professionals, no children, 4br. Planned appliances using propane are:
- home heating system,
- hotwater heater,
- a 42" gas fireplace,
- porch grill,
- and a 15-20kw or so generator wired to fridges, cooking, 35% lights, WD, and home heating.
We'll be in agricultural zone 6b mid-Atlantic, and in country on 3 acres just outside the 'burbs.
We consider the 500 gallon - will this be enough if we loose power in Winter for 2 weeks?
We consider the 1,000 gallon - will this loose pressure & appliance performance faster when the tank gets low?
We plan on backup woodburning stove in basement to augment any serious foul weather. We will have an open wood-burning FP off kitchen for fun & entertainment.
