propane Wysox, PA Propane is a popular choice in Eastern Pennsylvania homes like yours. That’s because propane offers a lot of benefits. Let’s take a closer look at what propane is, where it comes from, and why it’s so popular.

An Intro to Propane

Where does propane come from? According to the U.S. Department of Energy, most of the propane used in America is made in North America.

How is propane made? Propane is produced during natural gas processing and petroleum refining.

Is propane a liquid or a gas? Propane is usually compressed and stored as a liquid. For this reason, it is often referred to as liquefied petroleum gas, LPG or LP—for short.

Now that we’ve taken a closer look at what propane is and where it comes from, let’s take a closer look at what makes it so popular. Propane offers a number of benefits. Some of what makes propane so popular is the fact that it is versatile, eco-friendly, accessible, safe, and efficient.

Propane Is Versatile

There’s so much propane can do in and around your Wysox, PA home. It can safely and efficiently power appliances inside and outside your home. It offers a professional level of temperature control when cooking. It also powers appliances like water heaters and clothes dryers (and does so more efficiently than electricity). Propane also has a lot of commercial applications. It’s used on construction sites as well as in warehouses and factories for things like heating and generators. And because propane produces low, nontoxic emissions, it’s a popular choice for indoor forklifts, torches, and welding equipment.

Propane Is Eco-Friendly

Propane is actually one of the cleanest-burning options for fuel. For example, according to the Renewable Propane Alliance, using a propane generator versus one that uses diesel or gasoline results in fewer greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, homes powered by propane produce 30% less carbon dioxide (CO2) than all-electric homes.

Additionally, in the rare event of a leak, propane doesn’t pose a danger to the environment. It doesn’t damage the air, soil, water, plants, or water-based organisms. It simply dissipates. It also won’t damage your home or property in any way.

Propane Is Accessible
