  • Propane Tank Installation in Spokane

    According to most building codes in Eastern Washington, propane tanks can be placed hundreds of feet away from your home or building. The main requirements state there must be adequate clearance around the tank, and the tank must be accessible from the driveway or road. With that in mind, if hiding your propane tank is important to you, it is permissible to plant bushes around the tank (as long as the building code permits it). Building a small fence around the tank is an option as well.

    No matter where you place your propane tank, you can rest assured Banner Furnace and Fuel will install it correctly and safely.

  • Types of Propane Tanks

    Propane tanks come in a variety of sizes – from 120 gallons to 1,000 gallons. The size of your home or office space will dictate how big of a tank you will need. For instance, a 100-gallon propane tank is ideal for seasonal usage (i.e. a small cabin or shop, or for supplemental room heating). A 250-gallon tank is ideal for supplementing another heat source in a home, or for supplying propane to non-heating appliances such as water heaters, dryers and stoves. To heat an entire home, we recommend a standard 500-gallon tank. For large homes or commercial purposes, we can install tanks as big as 1,000 gallons
