Ecological : Its recognized environmental qualities include: clean and non-toxic, burns without residue; has a lower ecological footprint than several other types of fuel. Since it is lead-free and comes with low sulfur content, it does lead to acid rain; and, since it emits fewer greenhouse gases, it helps keep our atmosphere healthier and more breathable.
Versatil and Economical : Propane is also a top fuel for its versatility. Requiring minimal maintenance, it is very practical to heat, cool, wash, dry, light, cook, refrigerate or propel. This abundant resource is not only easily accessible, it is widely available at a very competitive price and it is simple and easy to transport.
Efficient : Propane-powered appliances have a very high efficiency because they maximize the use of energy. They deliver faster, warmer, and more constant heat than electric appliances. Propane fireplaces and supplemental heating appliances are capable of heating the entire house, while also serving as a sure source of alternative energy in case of an electrical power outage. Keep in mind that propane generators can take over and keep things running during power outages lasting several days. Another appreciable advantage is the fact that propane appliances have a longer life than their electric counterparts
Given the constant rise in the price of other energy sources and the inevitability of power outages, a propane appliance is a wise and very forward-looking decision. Reliable and economical, it is your assurance of comfort and your ability to carry on regardless of the weather and other external factors.
