Tips on Purchasing Helium for Your Balloon or Blimp
These are some of the major helium suppliers:
- Air Gas
- Aire Liquide
Most local welding supply stores (like Vern Lewis) will sell helium. Most suppliers will deliver helium tanks to your location. You do not usually purchase the tank, only the helium inside the cylinder. A reasonably usual practice is to charge a small rental fee on a tank if you keep it for more than 30 days.
Each of our advertising balloons and advertising blimps will specify the amount of helium required to fill it. One standard size tank in the USA is a 219 cubic feet.
When you order helium you want to have some additional helium available to “top off” your advertising balloon or advertising blimp every few days. Our polyurethane helium balloons and polyurethane helium blimps lose about 1% daily (PVC balloons and blimps lose over 3% daily); therefore, every 3 – 7 days you need to add a little additional helium.
