What We Do with CO2

You may have noticed "CO2" (or carbon dioxide) floating around our website or ads for some time now. And you may have wondered what exactly it's used for. As a restaurant or bar manager, you know that CO2 is vital to fountain drinks and beer as it is responsible for the carbonation in the beverages. Currently, we supply such businesses and venues with bottled CO2 only. So if you have a bulk CO2 system, we're unable to meet your needs at this time. However, if we can help you, please let us know.

Why Helium Xpress Balloon Wholesale?

Perhaps you're wondering how a helium business got mixed up with CO2. It's alright, we sometimes wonder too. As it turns out though, many businesses that use helium and balloons for promotions happen to be restaurants and night clubs. As we began receiving more requests for it, we stepped up to the plate to serve even more of our customers' needs.

Of course, there are several large companies that provide CO2, but few can provide the same-day delivery we offer.

We DO NOT Service the Machinery

When we receive orders for CO2, we simply deliver what is requested. Our drivers do not install or hook up any lines. If you feel there is an issue with the lines or your CO2 system in any way, please contact the provider of your CO2 system. In most cases, this is the Coca-Cola or Pepsi company.

Have a question about our CO2 services and pricing? Great! We'd love to help.
(By the way, we provide beer gas in the same capacity!)

Helium Cylinder Refills

At Helium Xpress, we can and do refill helium cylinders. However, there are certain criteria that must be met for us to legally and safely do so. Please note if you purchased a Balloon Time kit from a store such as Party City or Walmart, these tanks are disposable and cannot be refilled. If you have an industrial cylinder, please continue to determine your refill eligibility. Who Owns the Cylinder? This may sound like a trick question, but it's not. The answer to this question provides us with valid and important information regarding whether or not we can refill your cylinder. You might believe you are the owner of the cylinder because it's been on your property for as a long as you can remember, it has a self-made tag with your business name on it or because you personally paid for the cylinder. However, in some cases, it's still not your cylinder. This is why it's very important to purchase helium cylinders from a trusted source. Let us explain. The owner

Vinyl "Balloons"?

What are they? Well, we liken them to beach balls on a stick. They're composed of vinyl and are inflated with air. That's right, no helium required. We've seen them pop up at apartment complexes, car lots and storefronts. We get asked about these "balloons" from time to time, so let us review the pros and cons of purchasing and using these so-called balloons. At first glance, they sound like an efficient choice. They don't require helium so you can immediately suspend that expense. And they're reusable so you don't have to replace the balloons on a regular basis. Another perk would be that employees, office managers and store owners do not have to spend time inflating balloons on a daily or weekly basis. You can expect to spend around $30 per balloon if you're shopping from the cheaper end of the spectrum. However, this will include the pole, clamps, and other assembly items needed for that balloon. Various options are available regarding the

The Float Life of Helium Balloons

Customers always ask how long balloons last. This is sometimes difficult to answer as many variables can impact a balloon's float life. However, the answer is essential to party planning. Helium-filled balloons float due to the simple fact that helium is lighter than air. Because latex balloons are porous, helium slowly seeps through the pores. As less helium is left in the balloon, the balloon decreases in size and simultaneously floats lower to the ground until there is no longer a sufficient amount to keep the balloon afloat. The typical indoor float life of 12" latex balloons is 10-12 hours. If outdoors, this float life can be expected to decrease by at least half. Part of the reason a balloon doesn't float as long outdoors is due to temperature. The hotter it is, the more susceptible the balloon is to popping. In contrast, balloons typically contract in extreme cold, which decreases the size of the balloon. Ceilings that are texturized or have abrasive surfaces
