Uses of Propane

  • Your Primary Heat Source: A propane furnace consistently supplies air at 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Electric heat pumps dispense 95-degree air, which is less than body temperature (98.6 degrees), so the air feels cool, not warm. Propane gas furnaces last an average of 20 years, while electric heat pumps last an average of 12 years. Plus, the cost of repairing propane gas furnaces is lower than the cost of repairing electric heaters.
  • Space Heating: Propane-fueled space heaters are up to 99.9 percent efficient and include oxygen depletion sensors that automatically turn units off if oxygen levels drop below specified levels. They can also include thermostats and heat distribution blowers. Propane-fueled space heaters produce fewer air pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions than those fueled by electricity. In fact, the energy used to power electric heaters produces emissions two to four times higher than the energy produced to power propane heaters.
  • Clothes Drying: Propane-fueled dryers can complete drying tasks in approximately three-quarters of the time it takes an electric unit. Some models save up to 65 percent in costs over electric dryers.
  • Cooking: Propane-fueled cook tops offer instant heat and absolute temperature control. It's not surprising that ninety-seven percent of professional chefs prefer cooking with gas. Unlike electricity-powered appliances, propane appliances are not affected by power outages.
  • Water Heating: Propane gas water heaters cost approximately $10 per month less to operate than comparable electric units. On average, propane water heaters are 42 percent less expensive than electric heaters. Over an average life span, propane gas water heaters can save homeowners nearly $2,000 more than an electric unit. Propane gas water heaters also heat more than twice as much water in an hour as a comparable electric model.
  • Pool and Spa Water Heating: Propane gas pool and spa heaters use significantly less energy and heat water much faster than electric heaters. In most areas of the country, gas is by far the cheapest heating fuel for pools and spas. In addition to cost factors, a gas heater is superior to even a 220-volt electric heater for the quickest recovery time. Our Lennox pool and spa heaters are design-certified by the American Gas Association and test to ANSI standards.
  • Fireplace Inserts: Sales of gas burning fireplace units are on the rise. In fact, some propane markets report that nearly one-third of new fireplace customers are asking specifically for propane hearth products. Propane gas fireplace systems cost between 30 and 60 percent less per hour of operation than wood burning fireplaces. Propane gas fireplaces emit 40 times fewer emissions than wood-burning units and cost less to operate. Propane gas fireplaces can be turned off easily with a switch, eliminating concern about remaining embers.

Energy Savings Tips

Home Heating
  • Residential heating systems need regular tune-ups. Contact your local propane supplier to inquire about a home-heating system inspection program.
  • Change your furnace filter monthly. Clean filters will save you money on your heating bill.
  • Consider investing in a furnace thermostat timer that can save money by lowering your home's temperature when you are not at home.
  • Protect against drafts around windows and doors by caulking and weather-stripping.
  • If your are purchasing a fireplace, consider selecting one fueled by propane. Propane fireplaces burn more efficiently than wood-burning models and distribute heat more evenly throughout the room.
Water Heaters
  • You can save more than 10 percent on your water-heating bill by turning down your water heater from the standard 140 degrees to 130 degrees.
  • To extend your water heater's life and increase energy efficiency, drain it every six months to remove lime deposits and sediment.
  • Install flow-restricting showerheads. You can reduce hot water usage by up to 50 percent without affecting shower pressure.
  • Repair leaky faucets. A leak that fills a coffee cup in 10 minutes wastes 3,200 gallons of water a year.
Home Appliances
  • Gas ranges with electronic ignition systems will use 40 percent less energy than a standing pilot system.
  • Be sure that all burners are burning with a blue, cone-shaped flame. A yellow flame indicates clogged air inlets or burners that need adjustment. Contact your propane supplier's service department immediately if you do not see a blue flame.
  • Check the seal on your oven door. Gaps or tears in the seal will let heat escape and waste energy.

Key Benefits

  • Clean Burning:Propane gas burns so clean that log sets and room heaters can be designed to be non-vented, providing 100% of the heat generated into the conditioned space.
  • High output:Propane hot water heaters can be half as large as electric and provide much more hot water. Think about that the next time your shower gets cold.
  • Clean, efficient, Tanner Propane.
