Reasons to Love Propane

Celebrating Valentine’s Day, let’s dive into why we have a soft spot for propane!

Propane appliances are highly efficient:

  • Propane appliances are known for their exceptional fuel efficiency, ensuring your family stays cozy while cutting down on energy expenses. Some efficiency highlights include:
    • High-efficiency propane furnaces waste less than 10% of heat energy during combustion.
    • New and properly sized propane water heaters heat water twice as fast as electric models, with tankless options being even more efficient.
    • Propane dryers boast quicker cycle times than electric ones, leaving clothes with fewer wrinkles and less static.

Propane is versatile:

  • Your propane tank can power various home systems and appliances, including furnaces, water heaters, ranges, dryers, and more. It also fuels:
    • Pool and spa heaters
    • Hearth inserts and gas logs
    • Space and garage heaters
    • Grills and outdoor kitchens
    • Outdoor gas firepits
    • Propane standby generators for uninterrupted power during grid failures.

Propane is clean and eco-friendly:

  • Propane has a lower carbon intensity than gasoline and diesel, making it a cleaner energy choice. It contains no methane or particulate matter, making it eco-friendly and non-toxic.

Propane is cost-effective:

  • Propane appliances are efficient and affordable, as most propane in the U.S. is domestically produced, reducing its vulnerability to global energy market fluctuations.

Propane appliances ensure safety:

  • The strict regulations of the National Fire Protection Association on propane handling result in few accidents annually. Modern propane appliances come with safety features like shut-off mechanisms and electronic ignitions for reliable and safe operation.
