Propane: Clean, Safe, Efficient And Versatile

Propane: Clean, Safe, Efficient and Versatile

Posted: November 2, 2020

Clean-burning, safe, efficient and versatile propane gas opens up a world of opportunities for living better at home. Here are examples.

  • Water heaters. A propane water heater typically costs 30% less to operate than electric models—up to 60% less if you use a tankless propane water heater. You’ll get more hot water and you’ll get it faster—which means long, hot showers and baths.
  • Furnaces. Propane burns hot and clean—two of the main reasons that propane furnaces can heat any home while achieving efficiencies of 90% and higher.
  • Whole-house generators. With a propane-powered whole-house backup generator, you’ll never lose power—and you’ll protect your home, keep your heat on and preserve your food.
  • Hearths. Propane fireplaces and cast-iron stoves give you the warm glow of a fire at the push of a button, with minimal maintenance—at about four times the efficiency of a wood-burning fireplace.

That’s just the beginning. Propane also provides great options for ovens and cooktops, clothes dryers, outdoor living and more. Propane can do that!

To keep any safety issues at a minimum, please schedule a service visit at least once a year so that we can check all of your appliances, your gas lines and your propane tank.

Keep in mind that propane has a remarkable safety record, due in large part to the stringent codes and regulations developed by the propane industry and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). The staff at Wilson also complies with state regulations that require periodic testing and training. This is all done to ensure your safety.

With that being said, it is always a good idea to learn more about propane and proper safety procedures.
