Most people know that propane is a clean-burning and cost-effective fuel source. So why not save money by converting more of your appliances to propane?
Gas ranges give you a much higher degree of control because of precise temperatures. An added benefit is that a gas stove will continue to work during a power outage.
Propane is a quick, efficient and affordable way to heat water for the dishwasher, washing machine, showers and spa tubs.
Gas dryers get clothes dry quickly, and efficiently too.
Compared to a wood-burning fireplace, a propane hearth warms a room more efficiently and requires little maintenance.
Take the Kitchen Outside
No other fuel can do as much as propane can to make lounging in your backyard a pleasant experience. Thanks to modern advances in flexible piping, you can now extend your use of propane to a wide range of outdoor products, even refrigerators and fireplaces!
Among the most popular trends are “outdoor rooms,” particularly kitchens that feature everything from high-end grills and cooktops to ovens and rotisseries. Outdoor kitchens can be fueled either by a portable cylinder or, for more convenience, through a connection to your home’s main storage tank.

Compared with other fuels, propane is much less combustible. When combined with air, the source of ignition must be at least 940°— that’s twice as hot as what is required to ignite gasoline.
Autogas, a propane-based motor fuel, is the third most popular vehicle fuel, next to gasoline and diesel. Because it’s so safe and cost-effective, autogas is now being used for buses, fleet trucks, forklifts, farm tractors and lawn mowers.
High-efficiency heat pumps can be driven by a propane-fueled engine. This system is designed to efficiently heat and cool multiple zones within a home.
Because propane is nontoxic and doesn’t pose a threat to soil and water, installing propane tanks (above or below ground), is not regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency.
Propane is an essential fuel for nearly 900,000 farms in the U.S. It’s used for irrigation pumps, crop drying, fruit ripening, space and water heating, generators and refrigeration.
