Earth Day is this week, but the ideas behind Earth Day should be on our minds 365 days a year. When you think about Earth Day as it relates to your Massachusetts home, what comes to mind? Recycling, using less energy, running appliances more efficiently, saving water—there are endless possibilities. One primary way you can make a difference is by thinking through how you fuel your home heating system and your appliances, and how that fuel compares to others.
Take a look at some of the ways propane and electricity stack up against one another. You may be surprised by what you learn, but if you’re looking to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, this is the right comparison to look into.
Fueling your Massachusetts home with propane will help you cut back on greenhouse gas emissions, and your home will be more warm and toasty when the temperatures drop. With propane, you’ll be cutting back on your carbon footprint, and you’ll be using a safe fuel as well. In fact, if propane leaks, it dissipates without leaving residue or a spill of any kind.
In addition to propane, other increasingly clean options for powering your home do exist! If you’re a Bioheat® fuel household, you’re also part of the solution in the movement toward a carbon-neutral future. And solar panels are becoming more and more affordable from one year to the next, so that’s another solution to consider.
