The Perks Of Propane

Why make the switch to propane? Here are three benefits of propane.

Energy efficiency

If your oil-fired furnace or boiler is more than 15 years old, its efficiency has declined over the years. That’s especially true if it has not had annual maintenance tune-ups.

Some older oil-fired heating systems can have efficiencies as low as 60%. For every dollar you spend on heating oil, 40% is lost in the combustion process, sending your heating oil bills soaring.

Today’s high-efficiency propane furnaces and boilers can reach efficiencies as high as 98%! You’ll get a return on your investment from the first time you turn on the heat.

Clean Burning

Did you know that propane is listed as an alternative fuel in both the 1990 Clean Air Act and the 1992 National Energy Policy? That’s because propane is so clean-burning and produces almost zero emissions. Heating oil can’t say that!


People use heating oil for only home heating. But propane can do that better, along with a whole lot more!

With a propane tankless water heater, you’ll have all the hot water you need when you need it.

If you’ve always wanted to cook on a gas range but don’t live in a neighborhood served by a natural gas utility, propane is the solution! With a propane range, you’ll cook with on-a-dime, precise temperature control you’ll never get with an electric range.

Propane fireplaces let you get all the cozy comfort of a fire with none of the work and mess that come with a wood-burning fireplace.

Connect your gas grill to your home’s propane tank, and you’ll be able to grill whenever you want without having to run out and get a full cylinder.

Make laundry day easier with a propane clothes dryer, which not only dries your laundry 25% faster than electric clothes dryers but creates less wear and fewer wrinkles.

Because your propane supply is right there at your home, you’ll always have it, unlike being at the mercy of a natural gas utility’s lines.
