Propane — An Affordable, U.S.- Made Fuel

propane supplier new york When you choose propane for your home or business, you’re getting fuel that offers a wide range of advantages. But do you know why propane is so efficient, and where it comes from? Read on to learn more about what propane is and how it can help make a difference for you.

What is propane and where does it come from?

Propane is energy-efficient and affordable

It’s pretty simple – propane gives a big bang for your buck on your energy bills. Since propane naturally burns hotter, it feels warmer, and the energy produced creates a larger impact. Your utility bills will cost less with such an efficient fuel working for you, especially when paired with propane appliances.

Modern propane-fired heating systems and appliances are incredibly efficient.

In short, propane appliances work more efficiently and use less fuel. 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. Less wasted energy means more savings for you.

Propane is safe

Because of strong regulations and practiced industry standards, propane has an outstanding safety record, and we’re proud to be a part of that, since safety is our top priority. In fact, propane is among the safest fuels for heating and beyond.

Propane is sustainable

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