Why Should I Switch to Propane? Because it is efficient and clean, and it will save you money!

Propane Works Harder

Performance is the number one reason why most people choose propane. After all, it can efficiently and effectively meet nearly all of your home’s major energy needs, inside and out, from space heating and water heating to outdoor flame lighting and fire pits.


Propane appliances are extremely energy efficient and can save you hundreds—possibly even thousands—of dollars in annual energy costs. Propane is abundant and competitively priced compared to electricity, heating oil, and other fuels. Everyone wants to cut energy costs; propane will help you do it.

Propane is...

For homeowners interested in lowering their carbon footprint, propane is a low-carbon alternative fuel that burns cleanly and produces significantly fewer greenhouse gas emissions than most other energy sources. In addition, propane is a non-poisonous, non-toxic fuel that won’t contaminate soil or groundwater, making it safe to use anywhere.

By relying on propane for various applications in your home, including heating and power for your appliances, you’re lessening your dependence on the electric grid in the event of an electric power outage. With propane, you can still have heat, hot water, and hot food during outages, even in the worst weather conditions.

Propane production keeps quality jobs in our country. As of 2012, more than 145,000 workers across the U.S. were employed in the propane trade. Over 90 percent of the propane used in America is made in the U.S., reducing our dependence on foreign oil.

A propane heating system is about 20 degrees warmer compared to electric heat pumps that dispense cooler air.

With over 301,000 miles of transmission pipelines as of 2014, propane is widely available and easily portable. As of 2012, there are more 8,500 propane retail stations nationwide.

America produces more than enough propane to meet demand. In fact, the U.S. is propane’s leading producer. Propane is an abundant bridge fuel, making it a clean-burning alternative to gasoline and diesel that can address energy challenges while long-term renewable technologies are developed.
