As you turn to more energy-efficient and greener energy sources to heat your home, why not consider propane? About 48% of households in the United States use this type of gas to heat their home and other uses. If you’ve never considered it, below are five benefits of using propane for your Whitehall, PA home.
1. Clean Energy
The Clean Air Act of 1990 listed propane as a clean fuel as it produces minimal emissions and has a low carbon content. It’s also non-toxic and doesn’t leave a residue as it’s released as a gas that creates 70% fewer hydrocarbons than gasoline does, so it doesn’t impact your indoor air quality.
Sullivan Oil can deliver it right to your home upon request or on an automatic schedule. It also uses portable storage tanks, which makes it easy to access for camping and other uses. These tanks can last up to 40 years and require very little in the way of maintenance.
3. Propane is High-Energy
Propane is an odorless and colorless liquid with a higher octane than gasoline and vaporizes into a gaseous form. One of the things people love about it is that it heats a home or water heater faster than electricity does, often twice as fast.
4. Propane Saves Money
Not only is it more efficient, but it costs half as much as electricity does. This allows you to use less energy for less money heating your home and running your appliances than someone using electricity would.
You may believe that only outdoor grills use propane, but it can also power a fireplace, household appliances, drying your clothing, and more. You can even heat your swimming pool with it, which saves on your utility bill during the warmer months.
