One of our residents, who is in Florida for the winter, informed the board that they understood they were on an automatic propane delivery with their propane company. Well, imagine their surprise when they found they were completely out of propane! They had to arrange for an immediate delivery and have someone go to the house to let a rep in to check the gas equipment. Fortunately, this was discovered before the pipes froze and no damage was caused.
If you are going to be away this winter, it would be a good idea to confirm with your propane company that you are on automatic delivery. You may want to also have someone check your house when the temps drop as low as expected this week! If you check your company's website you may find you can create an account and they can give you an idea of where they think your propane levels are and when they expect to make a delivery to your house.
