Propane: Good for Your Home, Good for the Planet
Posted: October 12, 2018
If you’re looking for an environmentally friendly way to power your appliances without sacrificing any of the little luxuries that make a house a home, look no further than clean, green propane gas.
Versatile, powerful propane will help shrink your carbon footprint by:
- Reducing emissions – Propane combustion produces less than half the greenhouse gas emissions of electricity to produce the same amount of energy. It also has a lower carbon content than other fossil fuels, including heating oil, gasoline, diesel, kerosene and ethanol – a big reason why it was added to the Clean Air Act as a clean fuel in 1990.
- Boosting efficiency – Propane-powered appliances are usually more efficient – sometimes far more efficient – than electric models of similar size and output; a tankless propane water heater, for example, can save up to 50 percent on energy costs compared to a similar unit powered by electricity, according to the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC).
- Reducing harmful impact – Propane is not toxic and does not spill, pool, or leave a residue, which makes it harmless to soil or water in the event of a tank leak. With propane, there are no risks for long-term damage to your home or property if a leak occurs – unlike with heating oil, which can require costly remediation if you don’t maintain your oil tank properly.
The bottom line: If you’re looking for an efficient, eco-friendly way to keep your family warm all winter long – or your business up, running, and productive, propane is a great choice. And if you need a reliable propane supplier anywhere in our service area, Pioneer is the right choice.
