Why Switch to Propane?

Energy-efficient propane has become the “fuel of choice” for savvy homeowners and renters. Compared to oil and electric energy sources, propane offers you:

1. A cleaner, safer alternative

Propane is a safe, clean and non-toxic fuel alternative listed in the Clean Air Act and Energy Policy Act. With tight controls placed on pumps to eliminate any risk of overfill, propane is safer to store and transfer than any other fossil fuel. Propane appliances emit lower Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions than electric water heaters.

2. More everyday uses

Propane is perhaps best known as a fuel of choice for BBQ tanks, but it’s far more versatile than that! Did you know that propane can also power your home’s heat pump, furnace/boiler, water heater, space heaters, fireplace, gas range, refrigerator, clothes dryer, pool heater, generator, and more?

3. Improved performance

Propane contains more energy per cubic metre than natural gas. For home heating, this provides a more consistent and even distribution of air temperature supply.

4. Longer life span of equipment

Propane gas furnaces and heaters last longer - up to 20 years on average - compared to 14 years for electric heating pumps. A longer life cycle for equipment means less waste in landfills.

5. A smaller footprint

Propane equipment often requires less physical space than traditional energy sources, taking up a smaller amount of room in your home.

6. Local propane equipment and services

A wide range of high-quality home heating propane products are available in select locations - from furnaces and boilers to water heaters and other equipment.
