Fight Global Warming – Switch From Electric Heat To Propane
Posted: June 6, 2017
Did you know that replacing electric appliances with their propane equivalents could reduce greenhouse gas emissions on those appliances by 60 percent?
It’s true. Propane’s greenhouse gas emissions are significantly lower than coal (which produces more than half of our electricity) and comparable to natural gas (without the hassle or expense of having an external hookup). Propane appliances also produce heat more efficiently, so you wont have to run them as much to do the same job.
Of course those aren’t the only advantages of clean, green propane…it’s also:
- Versatile – Propane can be used to power just about any appliance in your house – from cooking rangers to clothes dryers. It can even temporarily power your entire home during a power outage via a backup generator.
- Trusted – More than 14 million US homes across the country use propane as an energy source.
- Clean – Propane was the only alternative fuel listed on the 1990 Clean Air Act; it’s also nontoxic so it won’t harm water or soil if your tank leaks.
- Money saving – Because propane burns so hot and efficiently, you save anywhere from 30 to 50 percent running your home appliances on propane rather than electricity. Those appliances also tend to last longer and require less maintenance than electrical appliances, so you’ll save money there, too.
