Why Propane is Right For You
At New England Propane, we’re proud to offer a full-suite of propane services to our customers. If you aren’t currently using propane in your home, now is a great time to consider adopting it! We’ll go over some of the top reasons why you should be installing a propane system into your home.
Propane is Versatile
Propane can be used to power a variety of appliances and heating equipment throughout your home. Things like clothes dryers, stoves, garages, fireplaces, barbecues and outdoor lighting can all be powered by propane! There isn’t any other home fuel that can power as many appliances and systems as propane!
Propane is Efficient
Propane is far more efficient than your traditional heating systems. Many propane furnaces have an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency of 95% or higher, with many boilers having an AFUE of 90% or higher. Propane furnaces heat air to about 130°F to 140°F and operate in short intervals to minimize cost.
Propane is Reliable
A propane tank can be safely stored on your property, and in the event of an electricity outage, can power a generator to keep the lights on and your heat running. Propane won’t leave you without heat when you need it the most and will help you keep your home powered as long as there’s fuel in the tank.
Propane is Safe
Since it’s inception, propane has had a remarkable safety record. From the outset, the propane industry worked in tandem with the National Fire Protection Association to develop stringent safety codes and regulations. Additionally, national maintenance programs like GASCheck™ ensure that homeowners understand how to properly maintain their propane appliances, increasing safety for everyone.
Propane is Environmentally Friendly
Propane is a nontoxic, water insoluble gas that is an approved, clean fuel listed in the 1990 Clean Air Act and the Energy Policy Act of 1992. Propane is also cleaner burning than heating oil and cuts emissions of harmful toxins up to 96%! In the event of an accident, you won’t have to worry about Propane harming the ground or water.
Propane is the Best Choice
With a strong safety and reliability record, as well as it’s versatility and efficiency, Propane is a fantastic choice for everyone. Over 47 million households trust Propane to power their everyday lives, with more consumers adopting it every year.
