Propane gas is a clean burning fuel that meets the requirements of the Environmental Protection Agency. Propane gas is nontoxic and insoluble in water. In its natural state, propane is a gas, which means it does not spill or leave a slimy, oily residue, and is perfect for water heaters, among many other efficient uses.
Propane gas can be used for a wide range of applications including:
Propane fireplaces and hearth products often offer attractive space heating solutions for those cold winter evenings.
Propane equipment and appliances are manufactured to rigorous safety standards, as well as being tested thoroughly for reliability. The propane gas industry has developed numerous methods to make the transport and use of propane gas safe. Almost 90 percent of all propane is produced right here in the United States.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, it could cost up to twice as much to operate your range, water heater, dryer or furnace with electricity than with propane.
Propane furnaces and gas water heaters provide more dependable warm air throughout your home at a lower cost than electric heat pumps and they have a longer average life span of 20 years! That is compared with electric heat pumps' 12-year average life span.
