How does propane compare to other forms of energy?
Propane provides similar performance to natural gas, and anything in your home or business that can run on natural gas can run on propane. However, propane burns less volume per hour than natural gas, which can save you money in the long run. Plus, while natural gas is restricted to a municipal grid, propane can be supplied anywhere.
In addition, propane can cost up to half as much as electricity, saving you 30% on your hot water alone. And, unlike electricity, propane will keep your systems running even in a power outage.
Propane also produces significantly fewer greenhouse gas emissions than diesel, gasoline, and electricity. It’s nontoxic and safe for soil and groundwater supplies. And, because propane burns cleaner than other fuels, propane-powered appliances require less maintenance.
