How far must the propane tank be from my house?

The tank can be very flexible as to location, but must be a minimum of 3ft from home openings (windows, doors, etc.) and must maintain at least 10ft from any form of mechanical exhausts, intakes, or heat pump systems. As well, the tank cannot be within 10ft of your fireplace’s direct vent terminal which both exhausts and takes fresh air in to the unit from outside.
