Now that spring has bloomed, have you looked outside to your backyard yet and thought about propane? Are you familiar with all the of ways propane can enhance outdoor living right here in Iowa? Here are some ideas to add more fun to your spring and summer.
There are many reasons why propane grills are overwhelmingly the most commonly owned grills in America.
Nothing beats the clean-burning precision of a propane gas grill. Whether you cook on a simple portable or a high-tech built-in model, you’ll get the same even-cooking performance time after time, with no starter fluid smell, dangerous chemicals, or mess.
When your cookout is done, propane gives you even more advantages. Instead of having to wait an hour or more for coal embers to cool, you can simply turn off the grill, shut off the propane, and clean the grate. It doesn’t get much easier than that!
There’s nothing like gathering with family and friends around a fire pit on a cool night. Whether the kids are toasting marshmallows for s’mores, or you’re relaxing over a glass of wine with friends, propane makes the night more enjoyable. Propane gives you real fire and real heat with just the flip of a switch. No need to lug firewood, or wait for it to ignite. And, when you’re ready to go inside, just turn off your fire pit and that’s that. Many fire pit models have ignition systems that can be turned on and off with a smartphone.
Gas was the main source for both indoor and outdoor lighting before electricity became widely available and accepted. Today, you can get that warm glow for your patio and pathways with propane. In most cases, it’s cheaper than electricity. And it works even when the power is out. Propane-powered outdoor lights can burn for just pennies per hour, and they can be matched with almost any outdoor décor.
With freestanding or wall-mounted models available, you’re sure to find a propane patio heater that meets your needs and budget – and one that will work even if the power goes out. You can enjoy a swim throughout the season—and even beyond– by investing in a propane pool heater, which will heat your pool water quickly and efficiently – and far more effectively than an electric model.
