Our Residential Propane Services Enhance Your Home
Why Choose Propane to Heat My Home?
When it comes to fuel efficiency in keeping your home warm, you can’t beat a residential propane heating system. Whether you have a furnace or a boiler, propane will provide even, comfortable heat in the cold winters of the Tri-State area. Propane space heaters can be used for unheated areas that aren’t regularly used, like garages, workshops, sheds and enclosed porches.
Propane can not only warm your home but enhance it as well, with an attractive propane fireplace or cast-iron stove. You get steady warmth, a cozy ambience, and none of the work, soot or ashes that come with a fireplace or cast-iron stove that burns wood.
When used as a home energy source, propane gas fuels a variety of systems and products. It offers homeowners reliability, cleanliness, improved performance and, on average, costs half as much per BTU as electricity. Approximately 8.1 million households use propane gas to fuel their home heating systems.
Hot Water Heating
Propane gas water heaters cost approximately $10 less per month to operate than comparable electric units. On average, residential propane water heaters are 42 percent less expensive than electric heaters – over an average life span, propane gas water heaters can save homeowners nearly $2,000 more than an electric unit. Propane gas water heaters also heat more than twice as much water in an hour as a comparable electric model.
Propane for Cooking
Propane-fueled cook tops offer instant heat and absolute temperature control. Ninety-seven percent of professional chefs prefer cooking with gas. Unlike electricity-powered appliances, propane appliances are not affected by power outages. Homeowners can continue to enjoy cooking meals in warm homes.
Your cooking game will be elevated big-time with a residential propane stove, which offers the precise temperature control favored by chefs. Instant-on and instant-off means you start cooking faster, and can prevent overcooking when you turn the burner off. You can also get propane stoves with features like a grill and a griddle, ovens with convection and steam settings, controls for different cooking methods, and warming drawers.
Propane Clothes Dryers
Residential Propane-fueled dryers can complete drying tasks in approximately three-quarters of the time it takes an electric unit. Some models save up to 65 percent in costs over electric dryers. Clothes dryers that run on propane are more energy efficient, offer all the latest features, including steam cycles, and will dry your clothes faster and with fewer wrinkles. Who wouldn’t love less ironing?
