Propane Power

There's a lot to love about propane, so why aren't you using it? See how propane can power your life.

Many homeowners are hesitant to use propane gas in their homes due to their worries over cost, safety, and efficiency. Well we have news, propane is not the villain many have made it out to be. See how propane can power your home, and your pocketbook.

Myth #1: Expensive

Propane heating systems are 98% efficient, meaning your dollar goes farther when it comes to heating your home. What’s more, its price per liter is one of the most affordable rates on the market.

Myth #2: Unsafe

Of course anything flammable carries a certain amount of risk, but we use flammable things like stoves, cars, and irons, every day—it’s just a matter of educating yourself to use your tools safely. Most tank models feature an automatic fuel shutoff system that prevents it from being left on. Installers can also make sure that a proper venting system is in place, so that breathable gases are not trapped in an enclosed area. Liquid propane dissipates and vaporizes—so it doesn’t contaminate water or soil, and is not harmful to the environment.

Myth #3: Not Efficient

Most people assume propane is just for grilling—but propane provides many purposes and is a very flexible heating system. Propane can be used for a furnace or boiler, hot water tank, clothes dryer, fireplace, stove, and oven range. It can also fuel many generators on the market—making your Plan B for power outages very convenient.

Myth #4: Inconvenient

Propane heats instantly. In fact, it is one of the better options for a busier household since it doesn’t require a long, chilling, wait for the heat to arrive.

If you’ve been believing any of these misconceptions, then it’s time to rethink putting propane to work for your home. For more information, contact any of our propane experts at 1-800-522-3793
