Our Tank Monitoring Plan is designed to give our customers peace of mind.
Why do you need a tank monitoring system?
Even if you have a large tank or on automatic delivery and have thought, “I’ve never run out of fuel.” a tank monitoring system may be right for you.
Let’s say you’ve got more than a couple of uses for fuel that are not weather dependent (your generator or a pool heater or a dryer just to name a few). Generally you get your fuel deliveries based on the temperature outside. This type of fuel consumption forecasting is based on degree days, essentially using cold weather to estimate how much fuel is being used to heat your home. But this completely won’t help if you’re low on fuel when a summer thunderstorm comes through and you need to use your generator. Or you have a summer BBQ and turn up your pool heater. With a tank monitoring system you’d be able to set up a low tank level alert and get an email in time to call in and ask for a delivery before that storm.
Consider how you interact with you bank. You have automatic overdraft protection that moves money from your savings into your checking account. But you still expect your bank to text you when your balance is low. Automatic fuel delivery is good, but you’d get even more peace-of-mind when you get a notification. Talk to AFC so we can help give you the information you need to help you make the best decision for your situation.
A tank monitoring system allows AFC to ensure you have the fuel you need, when you need it and that the temperature in your home does not get dangerously low.
