I live in a converted garage apartment, on the second floor. It has a 57 gallon tank. I use maybe 3 or 4 gallons a year for cooking, that's it. My propane supplier is now charging me a minimum charge plus a tank renal fee that bring my cost per gallon up to $32.
I am considering replacing that tank with a small tank that one can pick up at your local hardware store or supermarket. I am nervous about installing it myself though. What would you suggest about getting someone capable to do it?
Another question and one that may make this all moot: It is possible that the local zoning laws may prohibit this sort of hookup. Is that common? The rental I live in is "illegal" in that the town doesn't allow rentals so I can't go ask them about the change. (They know I'm here but are letting me be.)
I use oil to heat the house and for hot water. All I need the propane for is to cook and while I don't do much of that I can't not having a stove.
Looking forward to your advice.
