Posted: February 4, 2019

Happy family at home

Millions of people around the world use propane for everything from heating their homes and water to powering indoor and outdoor appliances like pool heaters, gas lights, clothes dryers, and cooking ranges. They do it closer to home here in Maine, too.

Why choose propane for your heating system conversion or new construction project? Here are six great reasons:

  1. It’s efficient – Most propane equipment operates much more efficiently than its electric counterparts – up to 50 percent more efficiently, in the case of a propane tankless water heater. When it comes to getting more performance for less money, propane is tough to top.
  2. It’s “green” – Propane emits less than half of the greenhouse gases that coal-fired electricity does; in fact, propane is one of the cleanest burning of all fossil fuels.
  3. It doesn’t cause environmental damage – Propane is not harmful to soil or water if it is accidentally released, and with an odorant added to help detect leaks, it can be safely tracked and stored.
  4. It will give you peace of mind – Not only does propane have one of the best safety records around, it can also power a backup generator protect your family, food, property and belongings during a power outage.
  5. It’s an American fuel – Virtually all the propane we use domestically is made in America (propane is a byproduct of oil refining), so every gallon of propane you buy contributes to our nation’s energy independence.
  6. It just plain works! – Homeowners enjoy the comfort, convenience and cost savings that propane provides as it efficiently powers just about any appliance in their home.
