Propane offers not just a heating service but also a sense of comfort and calm that comes with a home that is adequately heated. Electric heaters cost more and are less efficient than propane heaters. The U.S. Department of Energy has even shown that electricity can end up costing twice as much as propane.

Home Uses for Propane
Propane Furnace – Propane furnaces last five to ten years longer than electric furnaces. It is estimated that a propane furnace can operate for twenty or more years. Other than the longevity, one of the attributes that attract so many to propane is the fact that it can be stored virtually anywhere. The benefit of not needing to be connected to municipal gas lines means that propane can be installed in the backyard of someone’s home. This flexibility allows for those who live in more rural areas to have a reliable heating system.
Propane Boilers – A propane boiler with 90 percent efficiency can cut your energy use by one-third. This heating system emits fewer emissions than other petroleum-based products.
Propane Fireplaces – Propane fireplaces heat rooms much more evenly than a wood fireplace. It can burn 40 times as long without the harmful emissions.
Water Heating – The third largest energy use in the home is residential water heating. Propane water heaters can cost less than half of what it takes to operate an electric water heater.
How Do I Know How Much Propane Gas I Need?
It can be challenging to estimate how much propane gas you need without knowing specifics of your home or commercial property including the total square footage, amount of hot water used, fireplace useage, average temperature outside, and desired temperature inside. Generally, it’s best to estimate how much propane gas you’ll need within a 24-hour timeframe and extrapolate from there. A 100-gallon tank may last you 15 days or 50 days, depending on these factors!
