Here at First Fuel and Propane is your trusted local provider for all your propane needs.
Propane has so several benefits – especially when compared to electricity:
Propane is cost-effective: Propane has consistently cost less than electricity for the past few years. In fact, a propane tankless water heater costs about 60% less to operate than an electric unit while providing a longer-lasting stream of hot water. If you want a standard tank-type water heater, propane offers faster initial heat-up and a quicker recovery rate than electric tank water heaters can deliver.
Propane is efficient: Propane home heating systems can be up to 95% efficient. And airflow from a propane furnace can be up to 25 degrees warmer than that generated by a heat pump (and the furnace life expectancy is 5-10 years longer).
Propane is clean: Studies by the Environmental Protection Agency show that propane heating systems generate 68% fewer greenhouse gases than electricity.
Propane is safe: The propane industry has developed strict codes and regulations, and required preventive maintenance programs ensure that homeowners stay as safe as possible.
Propane is versatile: For home heating systems, garage heaters, water heaters, stoves, ovens, fireplaces, barbecues, dryers, pool heaters, generators and so much more – propane is the energy source that does it all.
Propane is dependable: Propane can be stored safely in a tank on your property, while electricity is subject to power outages.
