5 Benefits of Propane
Posted on September 25th, 2015 by Devine Bros
With the arrival of fall, homeowners are beginning to think about how they are going to heat their homes this season. If your heating system is in need of an upgrade, consider making the switch to propane. Using propane as your main heating fuel source offers significant benefits, such as:
Efficient. Propane burns hotter than most other fuels, making it a more efficient, affordable option for homeowners. Propane hot water tanks only take about 20 minutes to refill, as opposed to an hour for electric water tanks. Propane furnaces also last about six years longer than an electric heat pump and cost less to repair.
Reliable. By choosing propane to fuel your home’s heating system, appliances, and hot water heater, you have peace of mind knowing that are less dependent on electricity in the case of a power outage. Even in the event of a heavy storm or blackout, you will have heat, hot water, and hot food.
Safe. Propane is a nontoxic, nonpoisonous fuel. It is insoluble in water, so it cannot contaminate our water supplies or soil. Because of this, propane tanks can safely be buried underground without worry.
Eco-Friendly. Propane is certified by the Clean Air Act to be a clean source of alternative fuel. It burns cleaner than most other fuel sources, producing significantly fewer greenhouse gasses which are destructive to our environment.
Domestic. By using propane, you can help stimulate the American economy and reduce our dependence on foreign oil imports. 90% of the propane we use is produced right here in the United States, and 97% is produced in North America.
