Why Propane Makes Sense:
On average, the cost of using propane is approximately 50% per BTU when compared to using electricity.
Propane does more than provide heat. It also powers water heaters, generators and stoves/cooktops. If the lights go out, you still have options to remain up and running.
Propane equipment and appliances are manufactured to rigorous safety standards and last longer. Propane has a narrow range of flammability when compared with other petroleum products. Propane won’t ignite when combined with air unless the source of ignition reaches at least 940° Fahrenheit. If liquid propane leaks, instead of puddling it vaporizes and dissipates into the air.
Propane is insoluble in water so it presents minimal risk to soil or groundwater supplies. Propane is an approved alternative clean fuel listed in the 1990 Clean Air Act. It creates far less pollution than the power plants supplying you with electricity.
