Why use propane?
Propane is a clean and efficient way to heat your home or business. It’s been recognized as a “green” energy, which means propane cuts emissions and protects the environment.
Propane has advantages over
- Electricity: Homes running on electricity aren’t as energy-efficient as those fueled by propane. They’re also more costly to operate. And, with electricity, you’re more susceptible to power outages, which are happening more and more frequently throughout the world. Just about any appliance that runs on electricity can operate more efficiently on propane. Efficient propane not only saves you money, it’s better for the environment.
- Fuel oil: New propane equipment is often 20-30% more efficient than comparable oil heat ones. This saves money year after year on annual heating costs because of increased energy efficiency. Propane is also nontoxic and more environmentally friendly. The environmental consequences of a heating oil spill can be devastating to the ecosystem and ground-water supply. Heating oil leaks or spills can lead to thousands of dollars in cleanup costs. Propane is also much more versatile than heating oil. It can be used for many more applications in your household—from central heat and hot water to cooking, generators, fireplaces, pool and spa heaters and more.
Propane, on the other hand, can be stored on the homeowner’s property. It’s portable, self-contained and accessible.
