DELIVERY

Autofill

With an automatic delivery schedule, there’s no need to call for fuel deliveries. We’ll monitor your supply and refill your fuel before you run out.

We know that each of our customers is unique. A couple’s smaller home needs less fuel than a larger home for a family of five. We track your fuel usage by assigning a “burn-rate” for your home. The longer our relationship, the more accurate this “burn-rate” will be. We deliver when your tank is about 20-30% full so you’ll never be without fuel.

DON’T WORRY! IF AUTOFILL IS NOT FOR YOU, WE ALSO OFFER “WILL CALL” DELIVERY.

price guarantee

The R.W. Earhart Company’s Price Guarantee program is designed to give you peace of mind during the winter months when prices can spike. The program assures our customers that the price of their propane will not exceed a GUARANTEED price. That is, if the market price of propane is lower than our Price Guarantee, our customers get the lower price. But if the market price of propane is higher than our Price Guarantee, OUR CUSTOMERS ARE PROTECTED.

ABOUT PROPANE

Know the fuel that you’re using

Propane is a very safe fuel, but as with any energy source, there are STEPS THAT YOU SHOULD TAKE TO ENSURE YOUR SAFETY.

Tank LocationTANKS
TANKS

When determining a location for your propane tank, it’s important to take all structures, property lines, and other surrounding objects into consideration. The diagram below can help you determine placement. However, it is best to have a professional install your tank so that you can be confident it meets all safety standards. Select the tank sizes below to see where they should be placed.

What is the size of your tank? (in gallons):

UNDER 125

  • 10ft (min) from intake to direct-vent appliance
  • 5ft (min) from any basement or crawl space opening
  • 10ft (min) from any source of ignition

125 - 500

  • 10ft (min) from any structure
  • 10ft (min) from any property line that may be built upon
  • 10ft (min) from any source of ignition

501 - 2000

  • 25ft (min) from any structure
  • 5ft (min) from any property line that may be built upon
  • Both may be reduced to 10ft for a single container of 1200g or less if it is located at least 25FT from any other propane gas container of more than 125g.

FREE TANK LEASING & SERVICE

The R.W. Earhart Company has above ground propane tanks in various sizes available for lease. The lease is FREE with minimum purchase.

Propane tanks should be installed and serviced only by a qualified service technician. Do not try to modify or repair valves, regulators or other tank/cylinder parts. Doing so can create the risk of a gas leak resulting in property damage, serious injury, or death.

Leaks and Emergency Services LEAKS & EMERGENCY SERVICES learnArrowBlue.jpg
LEAKS & EMERGENCY SERVICES

Propane is a flammable gas when mixed with oxygen and can be ignited through a variety of ways. To make propane easier to detect, manufactures purposely add a chemical compound to give it a smell described as rotten eggs, a skunk or even a dead animal. Be aware that individuals taking certain medications or the elderly have can have trouble identifying the smell of propane. Consider purchasing a propane gas detector as an additional measure of security.

If you think you smell propane, follow these simple steps to safety:

Immediately extinguish any smoking materials or open flames

Do not operate electronics such as lights, appliances, telephones or cell phones. Flames or sparks from these sources can trigger an explosion.

Leave the area immediately

Ensure the safety of everyone at the source of the smell by exiting the building.

Shut off the gas

If it is safe to do so, turn off the main valve of your propane tank. To close the valve, turn clockwise.

Report the leak

Call us right away to address the situation. In the event we are closed, call 911 or your local fire department.


We are available to respond to emergencies 24/7, 365 days a year.

If you are experiencing an emergency or suspect a propane leak, please call us immediately at 1-800-686-2928. A representative will respond to your call.



Pilot Lights APPLIANCE MAINTENANCE learnArrowBlue.jpg
APPLIANCE MAINTENACE

Only a qualified service technician has the training to install, service, maintain, and repair your propane appliances. It is good practice to have your propane appliances serviced before the start of every heating season.

IF YOUR PILOT LIGHT IS DIFFICULT TO LIGHT OR REPEATEDLY GOES OUT, THERE MAY BE A SAFETY PROBLEM.

We strongly recommend that you contact only a qualified HVAC or appliance technician to light any pilot that has gone out. If you attempt to light the pilot yourself, be aware that you risk causing a fire or explosion. Please carefully follow all of the appliance manufacturer’s instructions and warnings before attempting to light the pilot.

Out of Gas OUT OF GAS learnArrowBlue.jpg
OUT OF GAS

It is very important that you do not let your propane tank run out of gas.

If your tank runs out of gas, any pilot lights on your propane appliances will go out, causing a serious safety hazard. If any appliance valve or gas line is left open, a leak could occur when the system is recharged with propane.

Many states require a propane retailer or a qualified service technician to perform a system leak check before turning on the gas in a previously empty propane tank. This can be costly and inconvenient, so we recommend that you contact us when your tank is at about 20-30% full to arrange for a delivery.
