Propane or Electricity?
When it comes to efficiency, should you choose propane or electric?
It’s simple: Propane
A given quantity of propane produces more BTUs than the same amount of electricity. As a result, less propane is required to match the heat energy in your home or place of business. Clean-burning propane appliances waste very little fuel in the combustion process, unlike electric-powered appliances, which are less efficient. This also makes propane less of a threat to the environment.
Why Use Propane Appliances?
An electric water heater can cost up to 30% more to operate than a propane water heater, and up to 40% more if you’re using a tankless propane water heater. Propane tankless water heaters generate far fewer carbon emissions than electric water heaters with a storage tank—about 50%! In a given period of time, propane water heaters can generate double the hot water of electric units!
Keeping your home warm at about half the cost of electricity, a high-efficiency propane furnace offers all the warmth you need, even during the coldest days and nights. Propane furnaces last up to 50% longer than electric.
Increased safety and quiet operation give propane generators a clear advantage over gasoline generators. A whole-house propane generator can make a true difference for you and your family during a power outage.
Propane for your generator can be stored indefinitely—even in cold weather—and is easy to receive by delivery.
Enjoy up to double the warmth and comfort of your fireplace without smoke, soot or ash. This efficient, clean-burning heat source continues to operate during power outages.
Thermostat-controlled direct-vent and vent-free space heaters are portable and easy to set up. They burn cleaner and emit fewer pollutants than electric heaters.
Ovens, Stoves and Ranges
With superior heat distribution and better temperature control than electric stoves, gas ovens, stoves and ranges are preferred by the vast majority of professional chefs. They’re also far cheaper to operate and stick with you during power outages.
With a propane-fueled dryer, you’ll get the clothes out faster and be able to move on with your day. Eliminate the need for an inefficient pilot light, and benefit from moisture-sensing, accurate drying with far less static.
