Homeowners and businesses from Navajo County, Arizona, to Socorro County, New Mexico, are turning to propane for a range of functions: space heating, hot water, power generation, cooking, laundry and countless entertainment uses.
At Sierra Propane, we work to help customers make the switch to this green, efficient and versatile fuel.
Here are some of the significant benefits of using propane in your home.
Propane is a reliable, energy-efficient home heating option that is more powerful than other options. One cubic foot of propane produces 2,520 Btus of heat. That’s greater than twice the heating power of natural gas, and it’s far more powerful than you get from an electric heat pump.
And you can ensure your family’s comfort with less fuel.
Today’s propane-fired heating systems are incredibly efficient — often more than 95 percent. So, little heat energy is lost in combustion, saving you money on heating. Propane water heaters are up to 30 percent less expensive to operate than electric water heaters.
Finally, propane is a plentiful, domestically produced home fuel. The U.S. exports more propane than we use. While it isn’t totally insulated from energy market fluctuations, propane’s price tends to rise less dramatically than oil or natural gas.
Countless families and businesses trust Sierra Propane since 1983. We want to serve your family, too!
Propane is one of the cleanest fuels around. It releases less carbon dioxide than any other home fuel besides natural gas. And unlike natural gas, it’s entirely methane-free. Propane contains virtually no particulate matter, which is a known carcinogen. In fact, propane is classified as an alternative fuel in the 1990 Clean Air Act and the 1992 National Energy Policy.
And you can count on propane to be there even when the electric grid goes down. Having propane heat, hot water, power generation and off-grid appliances means you control your power supply and don’t need to depend on unreliable utilities with aging, poorly maintained infrastructure.
Propane has a wide range of uses beyond heating living spaces and water. Indeed, it’s one of the most adaptable fuels around. You can use propane to power such appliances as:
