In our last post, we talked about the importance of rightsizing your propane tank – one of the key considerations when it’s time for a propane tank upgrade. Today we’ll talk about important factor in your decision: buying vs. leasing.
At its most basic, the decision to buy or lease a propane tank comes down to two considerations: cost and responsibility. Let’s take a look at both more closely.
When you lease a tank, you incur none of those costs; this is one of the key advantages of leasing. If you lease, you’ll also avoid all future costs associated with maintenance and repairs – a potentially huge benefit in the long run (see point 2 below).
The question is, who’s going to be responsible for all of that work?
When you purchase a tank, you are responsible for the upkeep of the tank, regulator(s), valves and lines. That means you incur the cost of ongoing maintenance, including replacement parts – not to mention having to keep your tank compliant with local, regional, and federal codes.
