There is no doubt that the holidays are a busy time for everyone. Prepping for house guests and large meals, rushing around to find the perfect gift, and figuring out how you can give back to your community can all be eased with the help of propane and Delta Liquid Energy. We’ve put together some quick tips for propane users that will keep the “holiday hectics” at bay.
Propane Tips for Entertaining a Full House
The family is coming for dinner or staying for a long weekend. Your home is powered by propane and you want to be sure you have your propane list checked twice. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
- Propane companies, Delta Liquid Energy included, are inundated with service requests during the colder months. To be sure your tank has enough fuel for a busy household, check your tank’s gauge a week prior to your guest’s arrival. If you are below 30% contact us to schedule a delivery. Your stove will be working hard, guests will want warm showers, your laundry room will be filled, etcetera etcetera. Double checking your level of propane will help everyone stay warm and cozy.
- Large meals can often come with a barbecued component. Some families will cook their protein on the grill. Or, maybe the day following a holiday your family will want something simple like hamburgers and hot dogs. Either way, grill safely with these grilling tips.
- Back up generators are increasing in popularity. There are many propane powered models and having one will come in handy should an unexpected power outage happen. With a full house and a turkey cooking, no one wants to lose power. Keep the power on with propane.

Giving Back With Delta Liquid Energy
The holidays are often a time when we reflect on our good fortunes and help our neighbors who may not have as much. Each year, Delta Liquid Energy hosts a toy and food donation drive for all the communities we are a part of. Each of our locations partners with a different organization that will keep all gifted donations within those local areas. We invite you to join this effort if you are able.
