We consider ourselves not only propane experts at DiSanto Propane, but we’re also propane enthusiasts. Propane is considered not only an efficient source of energy, but it is also readily available. In fact, about 90 percent of propane is harvested here in the United States, making it easily accessible to the 60 million American who use it as energy source. With so many Americans using propane as an energy source, maybe it’s time for you to consider making the switch to propane. Today, we would like to discuss the benefits of using propane as an energy source.
Propane Is Cheaper Than Electric
The US Department of Energy confirmed that heating a home with propane costs significantly less than heating with an electric system. Propane water heaters in particular can cost up to one-third less to operate than electric water heaters while recovering water twice as quickly.
Propane Heat is Hotter Than Electric Heat
An electric heat pump produces heat below body temperature, so the air actually feels cool when you press your hand in front of a vent. However, propane gas furnaces heats air to about 130 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit and also works in short intervals to reduce operating costs.
Propane Is More Dependable Than Electric
As we are all too familiar with, especially in adverse weather conditions, electricity is subject to power outages. However, when you use propane as an energy source, it is safely stored in a tank on your property. Many people simply love propane because no matter how crazy the weather may be, they still have a reliable source of energy.
Propane Is Clean
Considered a green source of energy, choosing propane for your source of energy can help reduce emissions, protecting the environment. The Clean Air Act of 1990 and the National Energy Policy Act of 1992 have both approved propane as an alternative energy source. Furthermore, propane is considered nontoxic and water-soluble and it releases as a gas. This means that it will not spill, pool, or leave a nasty residue. Propane exhaust releases about 60- 70 percent less hydrocarbons than gasoline. It also cuts benzene and toluene emissions by up to 96 percent.
Both the propane industry and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) developed stringent safety codes for the use of propane. As a result, propane has a stellar safety record. Additionally, propane heat also has some built-in properties to ensure further safety. Propane heat will not ignite when combined with air unless the ignition source reaches 940 degrees Fahrenheit.
