Propane: The Clean Burning Fuel

Clean energy

You probably know that propane is one of the most versatile ways to power your home, able to power everything from your furnace to your fireplace. But did you know it was also one of the greenest?

That’s because propane is among the cleanest-burning fuels around, which can be a big advantage compared to other fuels – especially electricity.

Compared to electricity, propane:

  • Cuts emissions – Propane’s greenhouse gas emissions are significantly lower than coal (which produces more than half of our electricity) and comparable to natural gas (without the hassle or expense of having an external hookup). Compared to electric water heaters, for example, a propane furnace or water heater can reduce home greenhouse gas emissions by 60 percent.
  • Improves efficiency – Because propane can reach higher temperatures more efficiently than electricity, appliances use less of it to operate. Less fuel means less impact on the planet (and on your heating bill, where propane can cut your bills by 25 percent or more).

Want another “clean” propane advantage? How about this: It doesn’t spill, pool, or leave a residue, which means that in the event of a leak, propane will vaporize and dissipate into the atmosphere rather than potentially damaging your home and property.
