Uses of Propane in your Home
Propane is one of the most versatile fuels available, so it really makes sense to explore the many ways that propane can make your life easier and better. With a built-in supply of fuel on your Missouri property, there are many options at your fingertips. Here are 5 ideas to explore:
- Warm up to propane. Affordable, guaranteed comfort. That’s what you get when you rely on propane to warm up your home. Most high-efficiency propane furnaces feature two-stage gas burners and variable speed motors to deliver all the warm air you need, no matter how cold it gets. That’s one reason why heated air from a furnace is much warmer than temperatures provided by more inefficient electric heat pumps.
- All the hot water you want. A tankless propane water heater uses a flame so hot you no longer need to keep water sitting in a storage tank, eating up energy dollars while it waits to be used. What’s more, it’s almost impossible to run out of hot water, no matter how many showers, hot baths or laundry loads are running.
- Cook like a pro. You’ll never see an electric stove being used on Top Chef! Gas stoves give you much better temperature control and heat distribution than electric stoves. The most efficient stoves have an automatic, electric ignition system, which saves propane because the pilot light is not burning continuously. Propane cooktops, ranges and ovens are available in the latest styles, including commercial-grade stainless steel.
- Hearth and home. With a propane fireplace, there’s more heat without the work and fuss. Light your fire with the flip of a switch and then enjoy the incredible atmosphere of today’s log sets and realistic flames. Gas fireplaces can produce twice as much heat as wood-burning fireplaces at about a third of the cost. And there’s no soot, ash or smoke.
- Clothes encounters. Gas dryers typically dry your clothes 25% faster than electric models while being gentler on fabrics.
