How many propane benefits do you know about?
Versatile propane heats your home and can power from water heaters, generators and stoves/cooktops to fireplaces, clothes dryers, outdoor grills, space heaters and more. That’s why we like to call it the single fuel solution for Arizonans!
But that’s just the beginning of home propane benefits. Here are 5 more:
Because of the clean-burning characteristics of propane, little maintenance is required to retain the high efficiencies of propane-fueled equipment. Propane is also nontoxic and doesn’t pose a threat to soil and water above or below ground.
Propane equipment generally lasts much longer than electric appliances. Additionally, propane appliances are usually 40-60% less expensive to operate than comparable electric appliances.
Every propane appliance is made with safety shut-offs, and most appliances are equipped with electronic ignition systems to give consumers years of trouble-free operation. Propane has one of the best safety records in the industry today.
Propane appliances typically reduce energy costs, delivering better value and comfort than other heating sources. With a clean-burning, high-efficiency propane furnace, less than 10% of fuel is wasted in the combustion process. In comparison, more than two-thirds of the energy used by a power plant to generate and transmit electricity is wasted. Today’s propane furnaces are now as much as 98% efficient. This means very little heating energy is lost during the combustion process.
- Flexible installations
Propane tanks can be installed just about anywhere, above or below ground. Additionally, propane water heaters take up less space than other types of water heaters. They also have more accurate temperature adjustment and offer more size and installation options.
