Propane Vs. Electric Appliances
About nine percent of Pennsylvania homeowners use propane to heat their homes – less than one-third the number that use electricity for that purpose. But are those electricity users getting the most heating bang for their buck?
Like electricity, propane gas is versatile enough to power almost any appliance. The difference is that propane will almost always do a better job of it.
A propane water heater, for example, will save you about 30 percent on your energy bills compared to an electric water heater while providing much faster recovery times. You’ll save even more energy when you choose a propane tankless water heater.
Propane Appliance Advantages
But better efficiency is just benefit of choosing propane appliances. Consider these propane advantages:
- Propane space heaters (including propane direct-vent fireplaces) heat rooms faster than electric models, and typically run more efficiently.
- Propane gas furnaces and boilers deliver consistent warm air everywhere in your home, no matter how cold it gets outside.
- Propane gas cooking ranges give you precision temperature control that no electric stovetop can match.
- Propane clothes dryers dry faster with less wear and tear on your clothes than electric clothes dryers
As you can see, you’ll save money and get better performance when you choose propane appliances. You’ll also help the environment, since as much as two-thirds of the energy used by a power plant to generate and transmit electricity is wasted en route to your home.
