How Many Ways Can You Use Propane In Your Home?

Posted: February 15, 2021

It’s amazing how many different ways you can use propane. It’s a super versatile fuel that can be used to fuel fireplaces, clothes dryers, outdoor grills, space heaters, water heaters, generators, and more. Of course, a propane furnace or propane boiler can also heat your entire home as well.

Because propane burns hot and clean, propane-powered appliances can reach efficiency ratings well into the 90% range. Propane will outperform its electric counterparts in just about any home comfort application.

When you use propane appliances in your New Jersey, Pennsylvania, or Delaware home, you’re going to see the savings. Because propane is such an efficient fuel, your energy expenses will go down and you’ll be getting even better value and comfort than you get from other heating sources.

Propane Appliance Options

Here’s a quick look at how you can use propane, the most versatile fuel around.

Warm Up Your Home With Propane

With a propane furnace or boiler, you’ll feel warmer than you would with electric heat. The thermal energy produced by a propane heating system is enough to heat your entire home. And unlike electric heat, no backup system is needed!

Serve Up Memorable Meals With A Gas Stove

Rather than feeling frustrated by an electric stove’s limitations, many people in the Delaware Valley choose to use a propane gas stove/cooktop.

From more precise cooking control to quicker temperature changes – especially for lowering heat or shutting it off – propane is the way to go. And as a bonus, your propane gas stove will keep on working even if you lose power.

Propane Fireplaces Provide A Warm Glow

If you’ve upgraded to an efficient, clean-burning propane fireplace, you’re enjoying a host of benefits. Besides great ambiance and much less maintenance, it costs anywhere from 30-60% less to operate a gas fireplace per hour than a wood-burning fireplace, which loses much of its heat through the chimney.

Clothes Drying With Propane

Whether your laundry pile regularly looks like a mountain or a molehill, it’s easy to find a propane gas dryer with a capacity that works for you. Quickly reaching the required temperature to dry clothes evenly, propane dryers operate for about half the cost of electric dryers.

Keep The Hot Water Flowing

Propane water heaters provide roughly double the water recovery rate of electric models, yet they cost up to 30% less to operate. They take up less space while fueling some of the most efficient water technologies currently on the market.

Take Propane Outside

Just like inside your home, there are many you can enjoy your backyard with the efficiency and safety of propane. This includes lighting, fire pits, pool and patio heaters, and grilling.
