Propane for Your Home
A recent consumer survey showed that most residential propane users don’t have a lot of knowledge about the ways they can use this versatile fuel to enhance comfort, save money and uplift their lifestyle. So the question is, are you missing out on using propane to your best advantage?
Think about using propane to:
- Heat your home
Propane-fired furnaces are ultra-efficient and generate much greater comfort than electricity.
- Heat water
Propane water heaters can save you a lot of money in operating costs versus less efficient electric units. They provide much more hot water faster, and come in both storage tank and tankless options.
- Dry clothes
Propane dryers are almost twice as efficient as electric models.
Propane ovens and stoves offer more precise temperature control and are less expensive to run than their electric counterparts.
- Put a glow in your fireplace
Imagine being able to start a fire with the flick of a switch. It’s possible with propane—and a propane fireplace delivers more heat into the room than a wood fireplace.
- Generate emergency power
Propane is a popular choice to fuel whole-house backup generators. And since your fuel is stored right on your property, you can continue to enjoy all of the comforts of home until your power is restored.
