I bought my first home 5 years ago which had an oil fired boiler which was easy to get the tank filled, my second house which I bought 3 years ago has a Finagas propane tank which can run the central heating and hot water.
Since I have a ready supply of oak wood I have never used it, heating my house with the Supra wood burner which has a hot air system for the rest of the house plus a 200l Chauffe-eau for hot water.
My 86 year old father in law is now staying with us and I want the gas central heating as a back up as he feels the cold, I was told the tank belongs to me as it is over 12 years old, so like the oil for my other house can I just get a supplier to fill it or do I have to take out a contract to get it filled.
In the 3 years I have been here Finagas have never contacted me about the tank and from what I can see it from the plate it was installed in 1971.
I only use the tank for a gas hob just now and want to get it filled so I can get an engineer to service and check the boiler, but don’t know how to go about getting the tank filled.
