Advantages of Using Propane to Heat Your Home

Elkin Propane Experts Share Their Knowledge for Conveniently Heating Your Home

Propane is a fuel source with a versatile list of applications: everything from heating up a grill for BBQ season to heating your entire home or water heater, or stove or generator. It’s often considered the single fuel solution because it has so many applications. Propane is clean, economical, and efficient. It’s actually considered one of the cleanest carbon-based fuels, and it’s non-toxic, which means it doesn’t pose a threat to above or below ground soil or water.

Propane often reduces energy costs, and their flexible installations often make them a great choice for heating your home.

Why Choose Propane To Heat Your Home?

Because propane is clean-burning and high-efficiency, propane furnaces are becoming a more popular choice for heating dwellings and residences. If you’ve wondered what some of the benefits are of choosing propane, the list below should help:

  • Less Fuel Waste – Because propane is high-efficiency, less than 10% of the fuel is wasted in the combustion process. Modern propane furnaces are upwards of 98% efficient which makes them a great choice for homeowners looking for energy savings.
  • It’s Safe – Besides being non-toxic, unlike other fuel sources, propane is one of the safest options. That’s because propane won’t catch on fire if it’s exposed to the air unless the air is hotter than 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Durability – Propane furnaces outlast electric furnaces by 5 to 10 years. And because a propane furnace is cheaper to run than an electric one, propane is a great choice for most homes.

So, as you can see, propane can not only save you money and help protect the environment, it can also keep you safe and warm in the colder months.

Why Work With A Professional?

Choosing a propane heating method for your home offers greater versatility and lower costs, but the quality of installation and delivery can make all the difference, too. This is why it can be so important to work with a professional when you’re considering making the switch to propane heating. Safety-trained installers can make certain that the furnace or other propane appliances are installed correctly the first time. Not only that, professional propane services often include propane delivery and fill programs.

Many delivery programs work on an automatic delivery schedule, so you never have to worry about monitoring your propane levels: the pros will deliver it when they know your tank is getting low. And of course, there are will-call services available, too, for those customers who prefer to monitor their own tank levels and propane amounts.

Choosing the right professional can take the hassle out of heating your home when the weather turns cold and can help make sure you stay comfortable and warm this winter.
