Propane is one of the safest, efficient and versatile fuels available, and that’s just the beginning of the reasons why Iowans enjoy using this clean-burning, American-made fuel.
We’ve compiled some numbers and facts to give you more insight into Iowa’s own propane industry as well as propane use across the country.
The residential sector is the largest consumer of propane. Residential consumption of propane is highest in the winter, mostly for space heating, and generally occurs in non-urban areas where other heating fuels are limited or expensive.
Getting propane delivered to your tank whenever you need it may seem fairly easy. But for propane suppliers, planning is more complex, and the process often begins a year before deliveries even reach customers.
Knowing the volume of fuel that each customer will need represents a key component in creating a supply plan, which includes storing away enough fuel. Customers can help out by contacting their propane dealer before winter arrives to discuss their anticipated propane needs.
Your propane dealer is committed to supplying you with reliable propane deliveries throughout the year. If you have questions or want to discuss your propane supply, please get in touch with your local propane dealer.
