PROPANE – THE Energy for your home – business - industry

home >why choose propane

Propane offers everything today’s home buyers want.
Propane burns cleanly and efficiently. It costs less. And it’s so reliable. It’s available wherever you want to build – far beyond the gas main and power grid.

Home buyers love propane because it heats the home to a consistent warmth; dries laundry faster and using less energy; cooks food quickly to exact temperatures; puts a cozy fire in the fireplace and fuels the backyard barbecue – all at a much lower cost than electricity. And propane is always in steady supply. Even when the power’s out, propane-fueled homes are nice and warm.

The more you learn about propane, the more you’ll warm to the idea of using it to fuel your home.


Value For Your Pocketbook
According to the U.S. Department of Energy electricity is more than twice as costly as propane on a nationwide average.

A propane gas furnace saves around $300 annually compared to an electric resistance furnace Propane water heaters save up to $150 annually over electric and heats 2 to 2-1/2 times the water with the same amount of energy.


Cleaner For the Environment
Electricity produces twice as much carbon dioxide as propane per pound of fuel burned
Only 35 percent of the coal burned annually to produce electricity is actually converted into electricity, whereas propane delivers nearly 90 percent of the fuel drawn from the well

Propane is an approved alternative clean fuel listed in the 1990 Clean Air Act, as well as the Energy Policy Act of 1992.  It is also being included in the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009.
