Benefits Of Whole House Generators

Posted: October 24, 2022

When the Power Goes Out, Let Propane Take Over We’ve all experienced a number of uncomfortable power outages in the Delaware Valley over the years. To stay prepared for such disruptive events, some people keep gasoline-powered portable generators in their garages for power outage emergencies. But these units have the capacity to deliver only a limited amount of power. They can also be dangerous if not vented properly. On the other hand, many people have opted for a propane generator installation instead. A whole-house propane generator allows you to enjoy all the comforts of home and keeps you safe when […]

Dear customer, On October 5, OPEC announced it was slashing production by two million barrels a day. As a result, the price of heating oil has spiked over $1.00 per gallon, as of the time of this writing. This is not just impacting heating oil.

A Heat Pump Can Keep Your Home Warm and Cool Thanks to evolving technology, heat pumps have become more practical in colder climates like the Delaware Valley. Here’s how a heat pump works. Unlike a furnace that creates heat and distributes it through your home, a heat pump doesn’t create heat. Instead, it captures existing heat energy from the outside (yes, even in cold temperatures) and transfers that heat to inside your home. In warm weather, a heat pump does another important job: it functions just like a central air conditioning system does. The heat pump system absorbs the heat […]

It’s a Clean-Burning Fuel with a Small Carbon Impact Propane is already environmentally beneficial since it burns cleanly with negligible greenhouse gas emissions. The advent of renewable propane gas, however, takes the propane industry’s effort to become more sustainable a big step further. While it is not in common use yet, renewable propane gas has positioned itself to be a major part of the clean fuel conversation in the years ahead. Just as conventional propane is a coproduct of crude oil and natural gas extraction, most renewable propane can be considered a coproduct of biofuel creation. Many of the same […]
