Benefits of Using Propane Gas
Storage – Propane is easily stored on your property and has the flexibility to work at times when other energy sources won’t. With this heating system, there is no worry of power outages or short circuits. Unlike electricity, when using propane you are in control of your energy source.
Clean Energy – Considered as clean energy, propane is exceptionally safe. For instance, propane is non-toxic and is safe for land and water. This is due to the strict guidelines enforced by the propane industry and propane natural properties. Even on the off chance of a leak, propane will evaporate into the air, not harming your property.
Versatility and Cost – Propane is very versatile and can perform a wide range of functions. Whether it’s cooking, drying, fireplaces or heaters propane has got you covered. This clean-burning fuel is 20 degrees warmer when in comparison to electric heat pumps. Also, propane costs half as much per BTU as electricity. Gas fireplaces tend to cost anywhere from 30 to 60 percent less per hour of energy than wood fireplaces.
Residential Propane Uses:
Propane Furnace – One of the biggest advantages of the propane furnace is the fact that it can be stored without the use of gas lines. These gas lines, which are common in densely populated areas, have little to no effect on those who live in less congregated areas. Instead of relying on gas lines, propane furnaces are connected to large storage tanks that are installed near the home. Now those who live in more rural areas are able to have a reliable heating system.
Propane Boilers – Propane boilers produce fewer emissions than other petroleum-types of fueled units. These boilers also require less frequent maintenance. A propane boiler with a 90 percent efficiency can cut your energy use by one-third.
Propane Fireplaces – Propane fireplaces are much more effective in thoroughly heating a room than a wood fireplace. In addition to its effectiveness, it also burns 40 times as long without emitting harmful emissions. Unlike wood fireplaces, propane needs little maintenance and does not produce ash or soot. On top of that, there is no electricity required.
Water Heating – Water heating accounts for a large portion of energy usage within a home. Propane water heaters, however, cost less than half of what it takes to operate an electric water heater. This system also reduces the greenhouse gas emission that your home produces by 60 percent.
