Five Ways Propane Can Add More Fun to Summertime
Posted: June 14, 2017
Summer is just a whisker away (June 21) and no other fuel can do as much as propane can to make lounging in your backyard a relaxing and memorable experience.
With that said, here are five different ways propane can turn an average summer into a great one at your home.
- Grilling and Beyond. Propane grills light instantly, heat faster than charcoal, and emit less carbon monoxide and soot. For the sake of convenience, higher-end grills offer drawers, side burners, surface lighting and LED temperature displays. Many people are taking cooking to new levels by creating outdoor kitchen—adding cooktops, ovens and rotisseries to their deck or patio.
- More Power to You. A whole-house propane generator will not only keep the lights on during a summer power outage – it will also keep your air conditioning, medical equipment, sump pumps and security systems running.
- Midnight Swims. Nothing beats a cool dip on a hot day…except perhaps a warm dip on a cool evening! When you’re ready to wind down for the evening in your heated pool or spa, nothing does the job better than a propane pool heater. It will warm your pool water much faster—and at a lower cost—than an inefficient electric heater. Many propane pool heaters include sensors that shut off the unit if water temperatures rise above pre-set limits.
- Lounge on the Patio Anytime. Take the chill out of the night air with patio heaters and outdoor fireplaces, which can raise outdoor temperatures by as much as 30 degrees. Propane-fueled fire bowls also allow you to enjoy a cozy fire year-round without lugging around wood and cleaning up ashes afterward. A large fire pit can be used as a centerpiece for your yard, or you can set up a series of small ones at the entry of your home to wow your guests. Many models have ignition systems that can be turned on and off with a smartphone or tablet.
- Light the Way. Propane can be used to light all areas of your home’s exterior. Popular applications include propane-fueled tiki torches, which provide plenty of lighting and ambiance while eliminating the smell and residue created by oil-burning torches. Best of all, they will light the way for you in a power outage.
