Tidbits about Propane

Posted on: May 25th, 2011 by

Propane is so unique. As a single energy source, Propane does so many things. Its most common application is home heat. It can be used to heat your water, food and clothes. Many business and farms use Propane for heat, motor fuel, crop drying applications and so much more. We are a proud supplier of such a great product that can do so much for you.

Better Efficiency

Propane gas stoves and fireplaces also heat more evenly and more efficiently than wood-burning ones. They can also heat a larger area, meaning less reliance on primary home heating systems and significant cost savings.

Wood-burning fireplaces can lose up to 90 percent of their heat through the chimney. Fireplace heat also tends to fade just a few feet from the earth.

Cleaner Burning

A Colorado Clean Air Campaign study showed gas logs would burn 40 times longer than wood-burning fireplaces while producing less emissions. The difference is so significant that in some states the use of wood-burning fireplaces is prohibited on days when air quality is poor.

Lower Cost

Propane gas fireplaces can produce twice as much heat as wood-burning ones at about a third of the cost. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that a gas fireplace costs 30 to 60 percent less per hour to operate than a wood-burning fireplace.

Turning to a more efficient propane furnace, water heater, clothes dryer, range or other propane-powered appliances will save you money, help the environment, and keep you warm.
