This is the Best Time of the Year to Purchase Propane

We all love savings – whether it’s store specials or coupons, or insurance discounts – we all love to save money.

This extends to home savings as well. Did you know you could cut back expenses on your propane bill? All you have to do is know the right time of year to purchase propane.

Early Fall is the Ideal Time

Most people wait until the colder months to consider buying propane, which is normally too late in the year. Winter is typically when prices are higher due to the increased demand. It’s not unusual for prices to fluctuate, even during the summer months when people are purchasing propane for outdoor activities. The greater the demand, the more prices increase.

This means that early fall is actually the best time to purchase propane. Temperatures during this time of year are usually just right and stable, which means the likelihood of a cold snap isn’t as great. That means prices don’t tend to fluctuate during this time due to increased demand. Scheduling your propane delivery during early fall also means you’ll be prepared for when colder weather does come around again.

Summer is a Great Time To Schedule Propane Deliveries

Early fall isn’t the only time of year you should consider buying more propane. Summer also makes for an ideal time to restock on propane or schedule your next delivery. This is because the demand for propane is still low compared to winter or early spring. With all the summer activities going on such as camping, grilling, and hosting outdoor parties, you may also be using more propane now than you realize.

If you enjoy outdoor living you’re probably using propane to warm up your patio or heat your pool on cooler summer nights, enjoy your fire pit, or grill for the family. These activities can extend into the cooler months of the year as well, so make sure you don’t run out of propane before the cold weather comes back around.
