Propane Benefits

- 4:52 pm - February 26th, 2014


Over 14 million Americans choose propane as their source of energy, in large part due to its versatility. It can power your heat and hot water, emergency generator, stove, fireplace, pool or spa heater, barbecue, and much more. At Glider Oil, we are pleased to provide will-call and automatic propane delivery as well as expert, safe tank installation. Some additional benefits of propane are:
 
  • Economics: Heating with propane costs far less than heating with electricity. The average cost to generate 1 million BTUs of propane was approximately seven dollars less than the cost of generating the same using electricity. 
  • Dependability:  Propane can be stored safely in a tank on your property, and will work during power outages, even when other energy sources won’t.  Propane is also often the fuel powering your emergency generator when everything else has shut down.
  • Safety: The National Fire Protection Agency has developed strict regulations to make propane safe for your home.  It won't ignite when combined with air unless the source of ignition reaches 940°F. 
 
Environmental Friendliness: Propane is an approved alternative fuel listed in both the Clean Air Act of 1990 and the National Energy Policy Act of 1992. It is also nontoxic and insoluble in water.
