More than 60 million Americans use propane gas on a daily basis, and 14 million of these families use propane to fuel their major appliances. Propane appliances can utilize this form of fuel to perform the same duties as their electric counterparts for much less energy.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the average Californian homeowner can save more than $300 every year by using propane gas for water heating, home heating, clothes drying, and cooking. These savings will more than pay for propane appliances over their lifetimes.
Powering traditional electric appliances like water heaters and clothes dryers can constitute a substantial portion of your utility bill. They use a lot of energy to generate heat, and while today's electric models are relatively efficient, they can't compare to propane gas. Propane is a clean-burning fuel that produces fewer greenhouse gases, especially compared to the carbon output of many modern power plants. A propane water heater not only uses less overall energy, but can help reduce your home's carbon footprint. A propane clothes dryer offer similar benefits, reaching optimal temperatures quicker than their electric counterparts and using less energy overall. The end result is a lower utility bill and a greener home.
Propane appliances like cooktops and boilers or furnaces can greatly reduce your overall energy consumption. They provide savings every time they are used, helping you chip in a little bit every day to lower your impact on the environment and on your own wallet. Even appliances like refrigerators can be powered by propane gas.
