Complaint: I ordered propane service for my gas fireplace in August 2013. I didn't turn on the pilot light or gas until mid-October. I had 91 gallons registered in my propane tank. I have used the fireplace approximately 5 times for an 1 or 2 each time, probably less than 10-15 hours total time usage. I now as of 11/13/13 approximately 40 gallons of fuel left in my tank. I spoke with the couple that lived in the house before I did and they were home nearly 100% of the time and they said they used the fireplace as their principal source of heat and they used around 120 gallons a season. Which is approximately a tank and a quarter. I rarely turn on my fireplace and even have the pilot light off to save energy. I called Anderson propane and they told me that the pilot light could burn 5-10 gallons a month even though I told them I only use the pilot light while the fireplace is on. My main concern is that when they installed the tank there must be an outside leak because of the amount of fuel that has already been used. I was speaking to the secretary and getting no help, she said she was going to pass me over to the manager and I waited and he never answered the phone. I am concerned for my safety as well as paying for leaking fuel. I paid Anderson 251.00 for fuel and they charged me 150.00 to deliver the tank of which I was sent a bill with not a single itemized charge just the 218. I have no problem paying them the installation fee, but if I have to be buying 250 dollars worth of fuel every month I cannot use this company any longer. I feel that they should fix the issue no charge. The folks I bought the house from said they never had had a problem.
Desired Settlement: They should determine why their tank leaks and fill the tank bank up to a reasonable amount without charge. 60 gallons of fuel in less than 3 weeks only running for about 10-15 hours total. When I called the secretary she was making excuses why my fireplace is using so much because of the pilot light. Even after I told her I wasn't using the pilot light.
Business Response: This is the first time I have seen this complaint even though it says second notice. Regardless, I will get with my folks and find out what is going on.
BBB's Final Determination: Business offered a resolution. Consumer did not pursue further with BBB and the matter was assumed to be resolved
