Propane Heating Benefits
Every day, people use propane for heating their homes and cooking. We are capable of delivering to you home to help meet your needs. Propane is a liquefied petroleum gas that comes from both oil and gas wells. It is an approved, clean, alternative fuel listed in the 1990 Clean Air Act. About 10 million families use propane to fuel their furnaces, water heaters, air conditioners, outdoor grills, fire places, dryers, and ranges.
By relying on propane for various applications in your home, including heating and power for your appliances, you’re lessening your dependence on the electric grid in the event of an electric power outage. With propane you can still have heat, hot water and hot food during outages even in the worst of weather conditions.
- Made in America
Over 90 percent of the propane used in America is made in the U.S., reducing our dependence on foreign oil.
On average, a propane heating system is 20 degrees warmer compared to electric heat pumps that dispense cooler air.
With propane you get more hot water from your tank less water heater because it recovers 2½ times faster than an electric one, and it costs about 30 percent less to operate. You can reheat a whole tankful of water in just 20 minutes with propane, compared to an hour with electricity!
Convenient and portable, propane is an energy source that can be used virtually anywhere, from the country to the city.
- Environmentally Friendly
Propane creates far less pollution than the power plants supplying you with electricity, so you help protect the environment by providing cleaner, more breathable air. It is also insoluble in water so it presents no risk to soil and ground water supplies.
- Easier to Maintain
Propane gas furnaces last an average of 20 years, while electric heat pumps last an average of 14 years. It also costs less to repair a propane gas furnace than an electric heat pump. Propane can cut your utility bill drastically.
