The Benefits of Propane
Propane is a by-product of natural gas, and it's the most widely used alternative fuel in homes across the country. Compared to oil and electricity, it's the cleanest, greenest option for homeowners like you.
Thinking of converting from electricity or oil to propane? We'll break down the benefits of propane and help you decide if it's right for you.
No other fuel source heats your home and powers your high-performance appliances better than propane. Propane fuel uses less energy than heating oil and electric appliances, which reduces energy costs. Plus, a propane-fueled furnace lasts about 5 to 10 years longer than an electric heat pump.
We all want to reduce our carbon footprint, and propane helps us do that. It is a low-carbon alternative fuel made right here in the U.S. It produces less greenhouse gas emissions than most energy sources and has been approved under the Clean Air Act of 1990 and the National Energy Policy Act of 1992.
Propane safety is our top priority. With strict regulations developed by the National Fire Protection Association, propane fuel is one of the safest fuel alternatives available. It's nontoxic and nonpoisonous, which means it won't contaminate groundwater or soil.
Storm coming? Relax. With propane, you never have to worry about fueling your home's most important systems, even when the electrical grid is down. With propane, it just works.
Heat, hot water, appliances, generators, fireplaces, fire pits, pools and more—propane can fuel your entire home.
