Do the electric appliances in your home outnumber your propane gas appliances? You may be shocked to find out how much money you could start saving if you pulled the cord completely on your electric appliances and plugged into propane instead.

Here’s a look at just some of the ways people in the Keystone State are using propane to feel more comfortable, enjoy greater convenience and save money.

Propane water heaters generally cost 30% less to operate than electric ones—or 60% less if you use a tankless propane water heater. Propane water heaters can also produce about twice as much hot water as electric units–in the same amount of time! If you’re tired of your electric water heater leaving you in a cold shower, contact us about converting to a propane water heater. It’s a lot easier than you may think!

Other popular ways to use propane

  • Avoid the limitations of cooking with an electric stove. Propane ovens and ranges cost significantly less to operate than their electric counterparts and provide a higher degree of control because of precise temperatures. Plus, a gas stove will continue to work during a power outage.
  • A propane clothes dryer gets laundry dry 25% faster than the typical electric model.
  • Propane heaters for the garage and other cold spaces are a great option because they’re much less expensive to operate than portable electric heaters. Vented propane gas space heaters are easy to install, incredible efficient and extremely safe.
