Benefits of Propane

Homes and businesses in Northwestern PA and Southwestern NY love the advantages of propane

Propane is clean-burning, efficient, versatile and American-made. Residents and business owners alike can enjoy its wide range of uses.

Rinker Oil & Propane has extensive background delivering propane to homes, farms and businesses throughout McKean, Allegany, Cattaraugus and Steuben Counties. Propane powers houses, appliances, generators, vehicles and work sites.

Why are so many consumers choosing propane to power their lifestyles?

Propane benefit — comfort

Whether you want to heat a home, a business or an outdoor work site, propane gets the job done. Propane offers reliable, energy-efficient home heating. One cubic foot of propane generates 2,520 Btu’s of heat. That’s more than twice the heating power of natural gas.

Whether it’s heating your water or your home, propane gets the job done effectively and quickly.

Propane benefit — your bottom line

Modern propane-fired heating systems and appliances are incredibly efficient. Very little heat energy is lost in combustion. That means that you use less fuel, saving you money. In fact, propane-fired water heaters are significantly less expensive to run than electric models — 50% less expensive for tankless propane water heaters! Propane clothes dryers take 25% less time to dry laundry than electric.

In short, propane appliances work more efficiently and use less fuel.

Propane benefit — sustainability

The U.S. Department of Energy’s 1992 National Energy Policy listed propane as an alternative fuel like biofuel and hydrogen power.

Propane is one of the cleanest fuels around. Because it burns incredibly efficiently — reaching 90% efficiency in modern equipment — very few emissions escape into the atmosphere. Propane releases less carbon dioxide than any home fuel besides natural gas. It also contains virtually no particulate matter, a carcinogen.

Propane benefits — lifestyle
