Why are there different propane tank sizes?

Each home uses propane differently. Some homes use it for only a couple of appliances, like a range or a fireplace. Others use it for several appliances. And many use propane for whole-house heating, cooking, whole-house backup generators, and more. What size propane tank you need depends on several factors, such as the size of your home and how well insulated it is if you use propane for home heating.

Boehlke Bottled Gas has tanks in sizes to fit every home’s usage. Here are some of the standard propane tank sizes so you’ll have an idea of what you need for your home.

60-gallon tanks. For people who only use propane for one appliance in their houses, such as a range, space heater, or fireplace, this little tank is ideal.

120-gallon tank. If you use two appliances, such as a cooktop or clothes dryer, you’ll likely want this tank.

250-gallon tanks. This tank can hold enough propane for homes with three or more gas appliances, such as ranges, clothes dryers, water heaters, space heaters, and fireplaces. However, it is not large enough for whole-house heating. 

320- and 500-gallon tanks. If you use propane for home heating and other appliances, you will need one of these sizes. Which size you need depends on the size of your home as well as which other propane appliances you use.

1,000-gallon tanks. Commercial applications are the most frequent use for these tanks. However, if you have a large home and use propane for whole-house heating and high-BTU appliances like as a pool heater, you could require this size tank.
