If you’re considering the use of propane as a heating fuel source for your home or business, you will need to install a tank to store the fuel reserves. Your choice essentially boils down to two options: an above ground or underground propane tank. Most people install an underground propane tank for aesthetic reasons. They don’t want the tank to detract from their nicely landscaped yard and/or property.
Underground propane tanks have a completely different set of rules and requirements that must be met during installation. They have specialized design features that allow them to store propane beneath the surface of the land. Propane tanks designed for above ground service cannot be installed underground.
