Affordable Indoor Comfort
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.
Did You Know?
See How much You Know About Propane:
- 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.
