Four Reasons to Switch from Electric to Propane

You want your home to be a comfortable place where your family can relax and unwind. While you may not think about it, how you power your house can play a big role in creating the home environment you want. While many homes rely on electricity as their energy source, propane offers many advantages for homeowners:

  1. Propane is versatile. Propane is a jack of all trades, as it can be used in many places throughout your home. Most people first think of propane as a way to heat the home, but it can also power appliances such as the stove, hot water heater, washer, and dryer. Propane tankless water heaters ensure a hot bath or shower every time. Heading outdoors, propane can be used to power grills and fire pits, as well as heat your backyard pool.
  2. Propane is reliable. Propane is known for its quick and consistent heating abilities, so you know that you will always have a reliable energy source. As an added bonus, propane-powered appliances keep your home running smoothly when the electricity goes out. That means you won’t have to worry about keeping the house warm, doing your laundry efficiently, or taking a hot shower if the power is out.
  3. Propane saves energy. Since propane is so efficient, you don’t have to use as much to power your entire home. For example, a propane-powered dryer works 25% faster than an electric dryer and a propane tankless water heater only heats up water when it is needed rather than constantly heating it. Over time, this can save you a significant amount of money on your energy bill.
  4. Propane is a clean energy solution. Propane is an approved clean fuel under the U.S. Federal Clean Air Act, making it an environmentally friendly way to power your home. It produces 43% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than grid-generated electricity. As a non-poisonous and non-toxic fuel, propane is also safe for soil or groundwater.
