Residential Propane Uses

propane appliances new yorkIn addition to being eco-friendly, readily available, safe, and efficient, propane is extremely versatile. There are a lot of residential uses for propane that you can benefit from in your central or western New York home.

Useful Propane Products

Propane can do a lot around the house. It can power almost any appliance and keep your family warm. Here are just a few of the propane products that can help improve the quality of life in your home this winter:

  1. Propane fireplaces: A propane fireplace offers warmth and ambiance with the click of a button. You get the beauty of a wood fire without any of the headaches. There’s no set-up, wood to buy or chop, or soot and ash to clean up. Propane fireplaces are also up to 6 times more efficient than wood-burning fireplaces, cost less in maintenance, and can act as a primary heat source during a power outage.
  2. Water heaters: A high-efficiency propane water heater costs up to 30% less in operation costs than an electric heater. Propane water heaters also have a recovery rate that’s nearly twice as fast. No matter how big your family gets or how many overnight guests you have to host, never worry about running out of hot water again—especially if you choose a propane tankless water heater.
  3. Space heaters: A thermostat-controlled direct-vent or vent-free propane space heater provides localized warmth and is safe, easy to install, and very efficient. It will also produce fewer pollutants and harmful emissions than a fuel oil space heater.
  4. Backup generators: A backup generator can provide security, comfort, and peace of mind. Extreme weather events are becoming increasingly common, as are the power outages that often accompany them. A whole-house propane generator can help keep your household up and running and your family safe and comfortable.
