In our last posts, it could be argued that we got a little bit carried away with ourselves. The two-part series was titled “We’ve Been Around Since 1937 — What’s Happened Between Then And Now?”, and we did our best to highlight just how many notable events have occurred from 1937 until now. There have been some terrible things to have happened, including war, genocide, disease, injustice, and much more that we wouldn’t care to touch on in today’s post, but there has also been progress and joy. Although we didn’t mention it specifically, world hunger has dramatically decreased in the last century, as has global poverty. Likewise, we’ve seen the dawn of the world wide web, online commerce and connectivity, and all that social media has to offer. We might argue that the third point might do more to hurt “progress” than aid it, that’s a blog post for another time.
Our general point is that, in this day and age, we are endlessly inundated with news. This news is often disconcerting in some way, shape, or form, and many of us find ourselves wondering if this nation has already seen its best days.
Wait, that’s not our general point — that’s more negativity. Our point is that you shouldn’t lose heart! This nation has proven to be resilient again and again, and perhaps we will rediscover the common ground that made our country worth being proud of.
You might be sitting there on your smartphone or tablet thinking to yourself, “What on earth does this have to do with a propane refill? All I wanted was to find the nearest Mighty Flame Tank Refill location, and all of the sudden I realize I’ve been reading something else altogether for a few minutes.” We would say two things in reply. First, that we are quite impressed with our predictive skills. Maybe we should get into the fortune telling line of business instead. The second is that you are correct; it has very little to do with propane tank refills, fleet flueing, or Disanto Propane in general.
That being said, read on if you are interested in learning more about what we have to offer here at DiSanto Propane, because today’s post is dedicated to highlighting our range of propane services on offer!
Who We Are
Since 1937, we’ve been serving Upstate New York with a variety of services. We are a fourth-generation, family-owned business. Being around for this long, providing the same, consistent service means we are doing something right. We’ll talk about specifics below, but in a general sense, we offer our customers an extensive propane storage capacity and a wide-range delivery network. This means that no matter where you travel throughout the country, you’ll be able to find a propane tank refill location within a reasonable drive.
Some of our other services include the following:
- 24-hour emergency service
- GasCheck certified technicians
- Fuel budget and Pre-Buy plans
- Service protection plans
- Construction and temporary heat services
- Automatic delivery scheduling
- Propane delivery, installation, and service for residential and commercial clients
Propane can be used for a variety of residential uses. Among them are water heating, clothes drying, in the kitchen for range and oven use, and even power generation if you are spending time camping, in a cabin in the woods, or out of necessity should there be a power outage.
Propane is used by some 60 million Americans and happens to be one of the most versatile energy sources we have, accounting for between three and four percent of the nation’s composite energy needs.
Here are some quick-trigger facts about home propane use:
- Propane water heaters are known as demand water heaters, or instant water heaters. They have triple the water flow when compared with alternatives, and you never need to worry about running out of hot water when it comes to taking long showers, running the dishwasher, and doing a load of laundry at the same time! Why? Propane water heaters heat on the go, as the water passes through the piping. Ask us about our demand water heater installation services.
- Folks save an average of $80-$120 per year when switching to propane ovens and ranges. You also get a faster heat up and cool down time with propane, in addition to more heat control. What’s not to love?
- Those same folks who switched to propane for kitchen uses would be wise to do the same with a propane powered dryer. You can save over 20 percent in monthly energy costs by doing so. What’s more, you can give yourself a pat on the back for doing your part in going green because you’ll be decreasing your carbon footprint. Over the lifespan of the average propane dryer, you’ll reduce CO2 emissions by 2,000 lbs.
- Almost 11 billion gallons of propane are used in the USA every year. For cooking, for refrigeration, for barbecuing, and for standby generators, people trust DiSanto Propane for essentially one-third of this nation’s existence.
Propane, also called liquefied petroleum gas, is an odorless, non-toxic, and colorless gas. It’s a superior form of petroleum, in our humble opinion, in part because it releases as a gas. Therefore, you don’t have to worry about it spilling into the ground and spoiling soil or groundwater. Although, to be fair, we wouldn’t’ recommend releasing copious amounts of propane into the air simply because it doesn’t’ pollute the ground. There are far better uses for propane!
In a future post, we’ll examine the many benefits of using propane for commercial (and residential) use, but for now, just know that for builders and contractors, propane is an ideal temporary heat source, in addition to being effective for forced-air furnaces, wall furnaces, and for fleet fueling in general.
