Propane: Your Dependable Heating Source

- 4:58 pm - September 21st, 2015

It’s mid-September, and we all know what that means: colder days and nights are right around the corner. But fear not – propane and its amazing versatility are here to save the day. Propane’s versatility will take you through the heating season in fine form, with its versatility, cost-effectiveness, and safe usage. It’s no wonder that 14 million American families rely on propane for their heating needs. When you rely on propane to heat your home, you’ll enjoy these great perks:
  • Propane is much cheaper than electric power. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, heating a home in the U.S. with propane has cost up to two-and-half times less than heating with electricity in recent years. In addition, propane water heaters can cost one-third less to operate and recover water twice as quickly as electric water heaters.
  • Propane is warmer than electric heating. A propane gas furnace heats air to about 130°F to 140°F and operates in short intervals to boost efficiency. Meanwhile, an electric heat pump produces continuous heat at a sizably less-comfortable temperature of 98.6°F. 
  • Propane furnaces last longer than electric heat pumps. Propane-fueled furnaces last 5 to 10 years longer than electric heat pumps, on average. This means far less time between replacements and repairs.
Simply put, propane is safer and far more dependable than electric heating. Your propane supply can be stored safely in a tank on your property, so it’s always nearby when you need it. You won’t be at the mercy of the weather or utilities, as is the case with using electricity. Where other sources fail, propane just keeps on going.
