Propane can do so much more than heating and cooking.

propane appliances Hazleton, pa From Chester County to Centre County and Franklin County to Luzerne County, new customers come to us to begin propane delivery service, and we always start by asking them what propane equipment they have. Most of these households have a boiler or furnace for home heating, a water heater and a cooking range.

At Koppy’s Propane, we help households of all sizes, whether you have one propane appliance or a house full of gas-fired products. We also want to help you get the most out of this versatile, efficient, American-made fuel.

Here are six residential uses for propane that you might not know about.

1. Laundry drying

Are you sick and tired of running loads of wet laundry through multiple cycles in an electric dryer and still finding them damp? Propane-powered clothes dryers are way more efficient than electric products. They dry laundry 25 percent faster, producing less static electricity and fewer wrinkles.

2. Pool and spa heating

Having a pool at your home creates many joyful summer afternoons and a lot of happy memories. But if you aren’t heating your pool water with propane, you’re missing out on a lot of swimming. With an efficient propane pool heater, your swimming time extends into the evening. Plus, you’ll enjoy relaxing pool time well into autumn.

3. Garage heaters

Do you use your garage as a workshop, studio or hang-out spot? These spaces can get awfully frigid in the winter. But propane garage heaters provide safe, robust heating that warms up quickly and keeps your space reliably comfortable. Koppy’s Propane sells and installs products from top manufacturers like Modine Unit Heaters and Detroit Radiant Heaters

4. Fireplace products

Everyone loves a roaring fire in the hearth when it cools off outside. But wood-burning fires require a lot of elbow grease. Cleanup is a mess, and burning wood presents a host of health and safety risks, including loose embers and fine particulate matter. If you want a lovely, convenient, safe alternative, install a propane fireplace insert like the Empire Comfort Systems and White Mountain Hearth products we sell.

5. Stunning lighting

Beautiful propane lighting lets you transform your patio, pool area, walkway, and entrances. This décor comes in the form of lamps, hanging fixtures, sconces and more. And propane lighting keeps your outdoor spaces lit even during a grid outage.

6. Patio heating and fire features

You don’t need to end the outdoor fun when nighttime temperatures dip a little in the spring and fall. Just switch on a patio heater or light up a decorative firepit. You can enjoy longer evenings with friends and family — and maybe toast some marshmallows for s’mores, too!
