Propane is cost effective.
On average, using electric heat is twice as expensive as propane. Oil is also significantly more expensive. Natural gas and propane heat are comparable in cost, but natural gas is not available in all areas, while propane is. Connecting to a natural gas line can be costly. Therefore, we recommend looking into the costs involved with propane versus connecting to a natural gas line.
Propane is plentiful.
About ninety percent of the propane used in the U.S. comes from the United States, and a shortage is not anticipated anytime in the near future. It is the most common liquefied petroleum (LP), and one of the nation’s most versatile sources of alternative energy.
Propane is environmentally friendly.
It’s considered a “green” resource. This means that using propane can cut emissions and is better for the environment because it’s clean burning. It produces less smog than gas does, and is non-toxic. In addition, it’s better for the environment than oil heat because it’s a gas, rather than a liquid, which means that it doesn’t leak, or pool into water or the ground.
Our customers can either buy propane tanks directly from us, or opt for a propane tank rental. We offer customer-owned tanks as well as leased propane tanks that are on loan to our customers.

Oftentimes, you can save on your utilities when converting from oil or electric to propane gas for your home heating. Many debate whether converting from oil heat to propane is the right choice. This is a decision you will have to make, but know that propane provides high efficiency, is cleaner burning, and more environmentally friendly than oil. If you have concerns about having a propane tank in your yard or live in a development that frowns on that, it’s not a problem. Since propane tanks don’t leak into the ground, it’s safe to bury them if you prefer.
There are stringent safety guidelines adhered to by the propane industry that ensures you can rest easy with your propane set-up. If by some chance you do get a propane leak, you will know it. Your home will have a distinctive unpleasant smell, much like rotten eggs if there is a leak. When in doubt, always call a service person immediately and leave the home if you’re advised to until the problem is resolved. If you are concerned about safety, ask for a demonstration of how to know when there is a leak when you get your propane delivery. Nothing is more important safety when is comes to our customers.
