Can you lower utility costs, make your home more comfortable, and reduce your impact on the environment all at once? You bet! Choose propane.
On average, propane costs about half as much per BTU as electricity and propane gas fireplaces cost 30 to 60 percent less per hour of operation than do wood burning fireplaces.
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.
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.
Propane users expect more from their appliances because propane delivers with both efficiency and cost savings. Propane furnaces and propane dryers deliver warmer air faster than their electric counterparts; while hot water heaters deliver more hot water with three times the efficiency of an electric heater. When compared to electric appliances, propane improves efficiency, reduces energy costs, reduces the user’s carbon footprint and in many applications improves indoor air quality.
Convenient and portable, propane is an energy source that can be used virtually anywhere, from the country to the city.
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.
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.
