Propane Uses

Outdoor Living – Turn your yard into a luxurious living space with an outdoor kitchen, fire pit, fireplace and gaslights. You can even extend the outdoor season quite a bit longer with a propane heater.

Pool Heaters – Propane pool heaters warm water more quickly—and usually more cost-effectively—than an electric or solar heater.

Cooking Grills – Propane gas grills are fast to heat and clean burning, with no charcoal residue, ash or harmful pollutants to worry about.

Water Heaters – If you heat your home with propane but don’t have a propane water heater, you’re missing out! Propane water heaters cost up to 30 percent less to operate than electric heaters, with a recovery rate that’s nearly twice as fast as electric models—which means you’ll never run out of hot water! Propane water heaters also need less space, have more accurate temperature adjustment, and offer more size and installation options.

Backup Generators – Power outages can be a major inconvenience—and even pose health risks—to your family. Whole-house propane generators can help keep your modern conveniences powered for days after a major storm.

Central Heating– Propane furnaces and boilers heat your home for about half the cost of electricity, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. Propane-fueled furnaces are smaller and last 15 to 20 years—about 50 percent longer than electric heat pumps on average. Propane can also keep your home warm during power outages.

Space Heaters – Vent-free propane space heaters are easy to install and incredibly efficient. And with built-in oxygen depletion sensors, they’ll automatically turn off if oxygen levels drop too low, preventing carbon monoxide build-up. Propane space heaters also burn cleaner, with fewer pollutants and emissions than fuel oil space heaters.

Ovens and Ranges – Propane ovens and ranges are significantly less expensive to run than electric units and give you greater control for cooking, with more precise temperature control and more even heat distribution.

Clothes Dryers – Propane dryers run about twice as efficiently as electric dryers. They also cause less wear and tear on fabrics.

Fireplaces – Traditional fireplaces use an open damper, which enables large amounts of heat to escape. Sealed propane fireplaces keep more heat radiating into the room—without a woodpile mess to clean up.


Why Choose Propane?

Propane is one of the world’s most efficient sources of energy. That’s why millions of Americans use about 18 billion gallons of it every year—to heat homes, heat water, cook food, dry clothes, and run vehicles economically and efficiently.

Check out some of the many great reasons why propane is the first choice as a fuel source for comfort needs:

  • Propane is economical and efficient.
    Virtually anything in your house, restaurant, or building that can run on electricity can run on propane. However, a propane-fueled home is less costly to operate than an electric home. The costs of electricity and propane can be compared using the BTU (British Thermal Unit), which measures the heating value of each fuel. National fuel prices from the U.S. Department of Energy show that the cost of electricity is more than twice the cost of propane. For the same heating value, propane offers remarkable savings over electricity.
  • Propane is readily available.
    Since propane is created from natural components—natural gas and petroleum—it is readily available here in the United States. In fact, almost 90% of the propane that is used in the United States is produced right here. Since propane is able to become liquid under pressure, it’s an energy source that can be used virtually anywhere! It can be used and transported to many different areas, such as areas beyond the reach of natural gas mains, wherever you live.
  • Propane is plentiful and will continue to be.
    As efforts are made to reduce gasoline consumption by 20%, propane is the smart alternative. Increasing the use of this affordable fuel in fleets by just 10% could displace one billion gallons of gasoline by the year 2017, delivering a significant portion of the displacement goal.
  • Propane is convenient to use and store.
    We can deliver it right to your home. Propane tanks are environmentally friendly, require little maintenance, and can last up to 40 years. Propane’s portability in liquid form makes it a convenient fuel for grilling, camping, and other uses. Up to 56,000 miles of pipeline and more than 6,000 retail dealer locations make propane readily available throughout the United States.
  • Propane is environmentally-friendly.
    Propane has long been recognized as the “green” energy. Using propane, homeowners can help cut emissions and protect the environment. Propane is an approved alternative fuel listed in both the Clean Air Act of 1990 and the National Energy Policy Act of 1992. Propane is nontoxic and insoluble in water. Because it is released as a gas, it doesn’t spill, pool, or leave a residue. Propane exhaust creates 60-70% less smog-producing hydrocarbons than gasoline, according to studies by the Southwest Research Institute. It cuts emissions of toxins and carcinogens like benzene and toluene by up to 96%.
  • Propane is safe.
    Propane has a very strong safety record, due in large part to the stringent codes and regulations developed by the propane industry and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). As with any energy source, there are steps you should take to further ensure your safety. Contact us to learn more.
