Our Remodel Story

We purchased a house in 2015 with the intention of doing a full remodel.  We had never done this before, but armed with ideas and a great contractor, we started on January 4, 2016.  That time of year is an awesome time to remodel because subs are looking for work and the project, if planned well, will move quickly.  That time of year is not-so-awesome if you are living in the remodel, which we were.  The contractors demoed the kitchen on January 4 and I did not have a place to cook again until early March.  I didn’t think this would be that big of an obstacle because I am creative, and I had a barbeque–I planned to grill all winter.

Little did I know, propane freezes, and this winter would be one of the coldest on record for Utah.  Needless to say, my winter grilling plan did not work and we ate out a lot.  I wish I had known more about propane and about Powerblanket propane tank heaters.

Propane Tanks Can Freeze

Propane tanks can freeze while in use. The colder it is outside, the lower the pressure will be in your tank; conversely, the higher the temperature, the higher the pressure. The liquid propane volume is directly related to its temperature.  When the ambient temperature is very cold, especially below zero temperatures, there may not be enough pressure in your tank to keep your system/appliance working properly. There is not enough heat to keep the molecules active, and the faster the molecules are moving, the higher the tank pressure.

Propane tanks sizes vary by need and application.  Consult the chart below for the propane tank size you need.

Propane Tank Warmers Optimize Performance

Propane Tank Warmers

The efficiency of your propane tank is based upon the temperature of the gas within.  Optimize output and performance with propane tank warmers.

Can Propane Freeze?

When the ambient temperature drops below -44° F, propane will freeze.  Below this temperature propane will not vaporize and your tank will freeze.  While there are not a lot of places where temperatures drop this low, any considerable drop in temperature will affect the propane tank pressure.   

When the ambient temperature is lower, an optimal tank pressure may be very difficult to maintain.  Propane tank pressure is based on the speed at which the gas molecules move–the faster the molecules are moving, the higher the pressure within.  Cooler/colder temperatures mean slower moving molecules, which prevent propane from vaporizing.  Bringing the propane tank/system up to a temperature above the cooler existing ambient temperature will result in increased propane tank pressure, flow and efficiency.
