Family by the fireplace

With its versatility, efficiency, and clean-heating power, propane can really make life better at home. Here are five ways you can make your home your castle this fall and winter with a little help from propane.

  1. Install a propane hearth – A propane fireplace, cast iron stove, fire place insert, log set or outdoor fire pit will give you all the benefits of their wood-burning counterparts without the hassles – and usually at a fraction of the installation cost. They also provide efficient off-the-grid heat in the event of a power outage.
  2. Add a propane generator – Speaking of power outages…they can be a nuisance at best, a danger at worst for your family. But with a propane backup generator, you’ll keep the power on even when the grid fails, which helps keep your heating, cooling, and security systems up, your refrigerator and sump pump working, and juice flowing to your electronics and chargers.
  3. Add a propane space heater – Have a “problem room” or work space that you use less often in the winter because it’s drafty or cold? A propane space heater will change that instantly by giving you a source of efficient, thermostat-controlled heat.
  4. Upgrade your water heater – Swap out your old electric or propane water heater for a high-efficiency propane model and you’ll get lower bills and better performance; swap it out for a tankless model and you’ll cut your bills by 30 percent or more and get unlimited hot water.
  5. Upgrade your electric range and cooktop – Nothing beats propane for precision temperature control for cooking – which is why 95 percent of professional chefs cook with gas.
