Propane is a clean, inexpensive source of energy for your Walnutport, PA, home. As cold weather approaches, here is a look at just a few of the ways that propane delivery can make your home more comfortable in the months ahead.
Your furnace is a big energy user when the weather gets cold. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, a furnace that uses propane can heat your home at nearly half the cost of an electric furnace.
Propane delivery is more attractive than ever. The cost of propane is near an all-time low at the time of this writing.
2. Water Heaters
Propane provides a clean source of energy to heat your water. A propane-powered tankless water heater can provide a nearly unlimited supply of hot water to your house, at a fraction of the cost of an old-fashioned, electric tank model.
3. Clothes Dryers
A gas dryer is both hotter and more efficient than an electric one, drying your clothes more quickly and causing less wear on them. Gas dryers also create less static than electric ones, eliminating a main source of frustration and shock on a dry winter day.
4. Power Generators
Having the power go out can be a real inconvenience, especially in the winter when snow and ice can knock out miles of power lines. Losing power can mean losing heat also, causing pipes to freeze and possibly burst. But with a propane-powered generator along with a propane-powered furnace, your home will never be without power and heat.
A propane-fueled fireplace can offer warmth to your living area, both physical and visual. Propane also burns cleaner than wood, reducing the maintenance required from a traditional fireplace.
