Luckily, Lakes Gas makes it easy to get the propane you need when you need it with our easy delivery options:

Automatic Delivery

What’s easier than doing nothing? That’s what’s required of you when you use automatic delivery from Lakes Gas. We track your consumption via our computer system using "heating degree days." This term refers to the demand for energy to heat your home daily, determined by the average of the day's high and low temperatures. So, when the system identifies you’re getting low on propane, we'll automatically schedule a delivery to your home. This greatly reduces your chances of running out of propane.

Lakes Gas takes safety seriously. We go far beyond the National Propane Gas Association guidelines of tank inspection every five years, inspecting your system when service begins, and every time we refill it.

Zip Line 2 resizedWe’re not sure whether you’ve heard, but there’s a pretty big football game happening in Minneapolis this week. And we’re excited to be part of it. Lakes Gas is supplying propane to heat tented areas at the Bold North Zip Line, part of the “big game” festivities.

The tanks were set up by our Clear Lake and St. Michael branch offices, and the propane was provided by our Minneapolis branch office.

The Bold North Zip Line will run for 10 days prior to the game.
