October’s first frost will be here soon, and many people are making sure their homes are ready for the harsh temperatures. Learn more about why more and more people are choosing propane over electricity to keep their homes running this upcoming fall and winter.
An efficient money saver
As electricity prices continue to increase, propane becomes the better value. The price of electric in VA with fees is about 16 cents per khw. This equates to $4 per gallon propane (one gallon of propane is equivalent to 27 kwh of electricity). Propane remains an affordable energy source as electric prices will continue to get higher and higher as the years go on.
Keeping your home warmer than electricity
The temperature of the heat from your air register produced by a propane furnace averages 115 degrees vs. 90 degrees for an electric heat pump. If you use electric heat, it’s no wonder you feel that winter draft in your home. Experience the comfort of propane’s heat quality.
