Versatile, affordable and efficient — Propane has it all!

propane appliances pennsylvania If you’re building a new home or renovating and removing inefficient electric appliances, you’re likely weighing your options regarding a new home fuel source. In Williamstown, Carlisle, Wapwallopen, and many other communities in southeast and central Pennsylvania, our team helps folks get set up for propane service.

Especially if you live outside the range of a gas utility, propane is an excellent energy source. Here are five of the top benefits of using propane in your home.

1. Propane is powerful and efficient

You get a lot of heat for your propane dollar. It produces more than double the Btu’s per cubic foot of natural gas. And in modern heating equipment, propane can burn with efficiencies as high as 98 percent! You lose almost no heat energy out of your chimney.

In short, your home will enjoy robust heat and plentiful hot water — all while burning less fuel.

2. Propane can do more in your home

When you have a propane tank on your property, you can power so much more than home heating. Here are just a few fantastic propane products:

  • Propane water heaters use around 30 percent less energy than electric models.
  • Propane clothes dryers work 25 percent faster than electric dryers.
  • Propane ranges offer more precise temperature control.
  • Propane hearths and fire pits offer supplemental warmth and stylish ambiance.
  • Propane pool heaters expand your swimming season into the fall.

3. Propane’s price is more stable

Propane’s price fluctuates less than many other fuels because it is U.S.-made. Virtually all the propane you use comes from the same American natural gas and oil production process. We export more propane than we use. Of course, propane’s price isn’t totally insulated from world energy markets, but it’s far more stable.

4. Propane is there when you need it

When you have a home that depends on natural gas, you’re at the mercy of a utility and its often-shoddy infrastructure. The same is true of homes that are 100 percent electrified. They completely shut down when there’s a grid outage (an unfortunately frequent occurrence these days).

But with propane, you control your home’s fuel supply. If a natural gas leak shuts down your neighborhood, your heat, hot water and cooking will be uninterrupted.

5. Propane is eco-friendly

Propane’s carbon intensity is lower than grid electricity, more than half of which is generated using natural gas in Pennsylvania (coal and petroleum are also used). It’s also methane-free, unlike natural gas. Propane contains effectively no particulate matter, which is a carcinogen.
