Are Propane Appliances Better Than Electric Ones?

propane appliances new york

Propane gas is one of the most powerful, clean-burning fuels around – two big reasons why it the fuel of choice for thousands of homeowners in Buffalo and Rochester, NY.

But what sets propane apart from other home energy options is that it combines that power with versatility: like electricity, propane can be used to run just about appliance –the difference is that propane appliances will almost always outperform their electric counterparts.

Take water heaters, for example: a propane water heater will save you about 30 percent on your energy bills compared to an electric water heater while providing much faster recovery times. That 30 percent savings can jump to 50 percent if you compare conventional storage-type electric water heaters to propane tankless water heater models.

Propane Advantages

But great efficiency is just one benefit of choosing propane to power your appliances. Consider these propane advantages:

  • Propane space heaters and wall heaters heat rooms faster and more evenly than electric models, and typically run more efficiently.
  • Propane furnaces feature two-stage gas burners and variable speed motors that deliver consistently warm air everywhere in your home, no matter how cold it gets outside.
  • Propane gas cooking ranges, available in a variety of sizes and styles, give you precision temperature control that no electric stovetop can match.
  • Propane water heaters have a much faster recovery period than electric models, so you’ll enjoy longer, hotter showers
  • Propane clothes dryers dry faster with less wear and tear on your clothes than electric clothes dryers

As you can see, you’ll save money and get better performance when you choose propane appliances. You’ll also help the environment, since as much as two-thirds of the energy used by a power plant to generate and transmit electricity is wasted.
