All of our propane is HD5 Grade Propane (90% pure propane). We are one of the few remaining family owned companies in Berks County who offer full service. We install tanks, gas lines, heating systems, as well as propane delivery. To get started with us, you either need to own your own tank, or you can rent a tank from us; get the details below.

Owning your own propane tank has some pros and cons. The pros are - you are in full control of buying propane where ever you wish. The cons are, you are responsible for maintaining the tank, keeping it painted, and perhaps the biggest one, the upfront investment to buy your own tank is significantly more than just renting a tank.
First, understand that there is no such thing as a free tank. The idea of a free tank may sound nice, but it is normally just a clever way to get you started. Don't fall for it. Look for a plan that is easy to understand and makes sense. If you don't own your own tank, then renting a tank is the easiest and most affordable way to get started with us. Whether you need a big tank to supply propane to heat your whole house, or if you just need a small tank for a cooking stove, or fireplace, we have competitive rental plans available for any tank size.
Our advantage: fair pricing, no gimmicks. Most people SAVE an average of $300-$500 per year on propane when switching to us because we don't charge any extra for the propane delivered to rental tanks.We do NOT charge extra for propane when you rent a tank from us. Instead, we charge a flat rental fee per year (simple & fair) so you know exactly how much you're paying for the rental (so you can prepare for it). Otherwise, you end up paying a high price for propane, and getting hit with a big unexpected bill for propane to compensate for the tank rental. We think it makes more sense to charge an annual rental fee rather than charging more for propane, and our customers like it this way.

- Propane tanks can only be filled to 80% capacity. (A 120 gal. tank will only hold 100 gals. of propane)
- Propane expands and contracts according to the outdoor temperature.
- 120-gallon tanks may be setup right beside your home (with a few other requirements).
- Larger tanks must be set at least 10 ft or 25 ft. away from the house.
- Our tanks are ASME certified, which means they are certified for life. (DOT tanks are not)
- Our tanks have a dome lid with a gauge inside to read the tank level.
- Propane is dangerous, you should always have a trained professional install a tank.
- Safety is our #1 priority; our techs are trained to follow NFPA codes & requirements to ensure the safety for you & your family.
We care about safety, and we do our best to make sure you and your family have the peace of mind knowing that we follow NFPA codes and guidelines when installing propane gas lines or propane tanks. There are many safety concerns that we address when installing propane/gas equipment. We do this for your safety, and peace of mind.
These are just some of things we do to protect you:
- We follow the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) code for installing propane/gas equipment.
- We pressure test gas lines to make sure there are no leaks.
- We use FlashShield pipe instead of CSST to reduce the risk of gas line failure.
- We bond gas lines to safely remove static electricity to reduce risk of gas line failures when lightning strikes.
- We inject methanol in our propane to disperse moisture in propane (helps avoid regulator freeze ups).
One of the most overlooked safety issues is bonding gas lines. Please watch the video below to understand why we bond propane/gas lines.
