My husband and I are in the process of building in SJP. We are building with Logan Homes and starting to research Propane Service. Suburban is a name that was recommended, but we want to research on our own before making a decision.

Should be lease the tank or buy it?
What are the pros and cons of each?
How much is the approx. cost/ month? (Cooktop, Fireplace, BBQ)

What companies do you recommend?

Thanks in Advance,

I'd say buy it, but you'd need to look at the actual numbers. If the propane company owns it, you will be charged annual "maintenance" fee.

I use Ford's and have been satisfied with them. Very prompt service. I haven't compared propane prices, but I'm assuming they are all about the same.

I use propane for heat and oven/stove and it averages about $75 month (ranging from zero in the summer to hundreds in the winter). I have an old, drafty, not well insulated house.
