Virginia Homeowners Enjoy Efficient, Green, Long-lasting, Safe Propane.
Using propane to fuel your home’s heating systems and appliances offers numerous advantages. It can fuel ranges, water heaters, HVAC systems, supplemental heating, outdoor features and generators. When you compare it to natural gas and electricity, propane ranks higher. Here’s why it is the smart option for your house:
Efficient: It contains more energy than natural gas. That higher BTU rating means you can heat more water with less gas. It is also less expensive than electric and produces consistently warm heat more efficiently than heating with electricity.
Green: It is the greener option for heating your home and water. It meets the requirements of the Clean Air Act of 1990 and is an approved “alternative” fuel source that is non-toxic. It will not harm soil or water.
Long-Lasting: It is typically less expensive to heat your home and water with propane. Appliances like ranges and water heaters are sometimes slightly more expensive initially, but they operate more efficiently and tend to last longer than those designed for electric use.
Safe: Strict codes ensure propane is one of the safest fuels available. It will only ignite with the correct air mixture and when exposed to a high-temperature ignition source. .
