These are some common sizes of propane tanks, and how they are used. This will give you an idea of what you may need.
60-gallon tanks. These tanks are for homes that only have a small propane appliance like a space heater.
120-gallon tanks. If you use propane for a more frequently used appliance like a range, clothes dryer, or water heater, you may need this size tank. However, it is not large enough for whole-house heating.
320- to 500-gallon tanks. Do you use propane to heat your home? Then your tank will likely be one of these sizes. In commercial applications, a 500-gallon tank would be used used for heating—depending on the size of your space—cooking, and some agricultural uses like heating barns and greenhouses, and/or water heating.
1,000-gallon and larger tanks. These size tanks are most commonly used for commercial applications, like bulk propane at a construction site or farm, or for businesses such as restaurants, hotels and resorts, commercial kitchens, and laundromats. They are used residentially in very large homes that use propane in several appliances in the home as well as pool and spa heaters, which are high-BTU appliances and use a lot of propane.
Did you know that buying and installing your own propane tank can cost $3,000 or more? The price depends on the size of your tank and whether it is being installed aboveground or underground.
