Why Is Propane the Smart Choice for Home Heating?
Have You Considering Switching to Propane?
If you’ve never lived in a propane-heated home before, you might be surprised to know all the benefits. Sure, it’s great for grilling, but propane is also one of the cleanest, most versatile, and efficient fuels around!
Getting Familiar with the Benefits of Propane Gas
It’s a domestically sourced alternative fuel that can provide steady, reliable heat energy at an affordable price. Propane also offers exceptional performance and efficiency in a wide range of home appliances at a much lower cost than electricity.
Here are just a few of the ways propane can make your home more comfortable and your energy bills more manageable:
- Propane generates more Btus than an equivalent amount of electricity, so you need much less propane to produce the same amount of heat.
- A propane fireplace gives you all the charm and warmth and none of the soot, ash, kindling and mess of a woodburning hearth.
- When the power goes out, a propane whole-house generator can keep your home lit, your food safe and your family warm.
- Propane water heaters are more energy-efficient and cost less to operate than electric water heaters.
- Propane clothes dryers help to dry laundry faster and produce fewer wrinkles—saving you energy and ironing.
- Chefs prefer the precision and temperature control that comes with a propane range.
- Propane wall and space heaters make it easy to heat spaces your heating system doesn’t reach—like additions, sunrooms, attics, workshops and garages.
- Propane lets you make the most of your outdoor living areas: propane pool heaters, patio heaters, and fire pits let you extend the day—or the season.
- When it comes to environmental impact, propane gas is a good choice. It burns cleanly and produces minimal emissions. Propane also doesn’t harm soil or groundwater.
- Propane is an American energy source. About 90% of the United States’ supply of propane is domestically generated. Most of it comes from the processing of natural gas.
All those benefits mean propane offers more bang for your buck, all while protecting the environment!
