We all know that running out of propane can be a real problem, but it’s also really hard to find a trustworthy propane provider in Ontario that you can count on.
Many suppliers offer discounted rates on your first fill — but you end up paying for it down the road with poor customer service and unfair fuel prices.
Rest easy knowing that you will receive on-time, hassle-free propane deliveries, at predictable prices this season. Our priority to provide exceptional service is backed by our customer-centric programs to automate your fuel delivery and eliminate the uncertainty of your heating costs — no matter how the fuel market fluctuates.

The Benefits of Propane Fuel
Switching to propane from electricity or heating oil will often result in lower monthly utility bills. On average, it is more affordable to operate and heat your home using propane than electricity. Propane can also be more cost-effective than heating oil.
Propane is a clean-burning fuel that provides homeowners with an eco-friendly energy option. It is non-toxic and does not represent a leak risk. Switching to propane is a low-carbon, environmentally responsible choice.
Propane-powered equipment has a lower operating cost and has been shown to last longer than equipment powered by gasoline or diesel. Propane-powered equipment also requires less maintenance. Most gasoline-powered equipment can also be easily converted to propane by a licensed professional.
Frequently Asked Questions
How far away from the house does a propane tank have to be?
A horizontal propane tank must be at least 10 feet away from any building (including a garage or a shed) and at least 10 feet away from any source that may create a spark, such as an air conditioner or a generator.
What is the average size of a residential propane tank in Ontario?
The most popular propane tank for residential usage is the 500-gallon tank. It’s commonly used for home heating, generator operation, cooking, pool heating, and more. The major advantage of this larger tank is that you can function longer between fill-ups.
We rent propane tanks with a range of capacities, from 100 gallons up to 1000 gallons or more for commercial usage.
How long is the hose from the truck to the propane tank?
The hose from the truck to the propane tank is between 10 and 20 feet long. The exact length depends on where you place the propane tank.
Is it better to buy or rent your propane tank?
The decision to buy or rent a propane tank depends on your specific circumstances and preferences.
Buying a tank allows you to select any Ontario propane vendor you want, but also places the responsibility for maintenance and installation with you.
Renting, on the other hand, helps you avoid concerns about propane tank repairs and service, but it comes at the cost of giving up the choice of which company supplies your gas.
What is the best pricing plan for propane?
We offer a range of pricing programs to offer our customers flexibility in managing their costs.
If you’re looking for a fixed price that is guaranteed throughout the duration of your heating season, our Fixed Price Program can give you peace of mind when it comes to budgeting.
Our Equal Payments Program allows residential customers to spread our Fixed Price Program over 12 months, which can help with managing monthly expenses.
Alternatively, our Floating Price Program will adjust your propane price throughout the year in response to market peaks and valleys. When you place an order for a delivery, you will be charged the current market price for the amount of fuel you are buying. This plan is ideal for individuals who want to keep track of market fluctuations and take advantage of reduced costs when prices are low.
