Posted: March 9, 2020

Do you rely on a lot of electric appliances in your Delaware Valley home? You may be surprised to learn how much money you could save—and how more comfortable you’ll feel—if you pulled the cord completely on your electric appliances and plugged into propane appliances instead.

Here’s a look at just some of the ways people in the Delaware Valley are using propane to feel more comfortable, enjoying greater convenience and saving money.

Propane water heaters

They 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 ways to save with 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, incredibly efficient and extremely safe.
  • There are many ways you can make your outdoor living space more fun, especially if you take full advantage of propane’s versatility. You have so many choices when it comes to making your backyard more fun and appealing. Whether you’re thinking about grills, hearths and heaters, stylish lighting or comforting outdoor heaters, propane can do that!
