Propane Gas: Five Benefits For Your Home
Five benefits of propane gas
Want one of the easiest ways to make your home more eco-friendly and save money on your energy bills at the same time? Swap your electrical appliances for their propane equivalents.
The 1st advantage of propane:
A home powered by propane appliances will almost always outperform one that uses electric-powered ones when it comes to carbon emissions. In fact, choosing propane rather than electricity for space heating, cooking, clothes drying, and water heating could cut carbon emissions in half. Replace your electric clothes dryer with a propane-fueled model, for example, and you could reduce CO emissions by as much as three tons over the course of its useful life, according to the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC).
But that’s not the only reason why propane gas is a great choice over electricity for your eastern Tennessee or southern Virginia home.
It’s safe and easy to transport – Because propane is easy to transport, more than 12 million households in rural America depend on it for heat, power, and appliances. Remote commercial enterprises rely on propane, too: for example, four out of five of U.S. farmers use propane grain dryers to reduce crop loss, improve yield, and preserve margins.
It’s great in a pinch – Propane is an incredibly reliable energy source after hurricanes, wildfires, or other disasters paralyze a community. It’s also the perfect fuel for generators, which can keep your appliances, safety systems, and other equipment working when the grid is down.
