Is Propane a Good Choice for My Home?

Clean Energy Available to All North Carolinians

propane heat north carolinaWhen you rely on propane, your energy is secure, clean and made domestically. Propane suppliers in the Tar Heel State can give you the cleanest energy available to all North Carolinians everywhere! 

Because propane is created through the processing of natural gas or crude oil, it is a fuel that is largely a domestic product. In fact, about 90% of the American propane supply is generated right here in the United States! That abundant, right-at-home supply makes propane a reliable fuel choice for your North Carolina home, including for your home heating system and all of your appliances, throughout the year.

If you use propane appliances instead of electric ones, you’re doing your part to help the environment. The average propane-powered home reduces carbon dioxide emissions by nearly 30% compared to all-electric homes. What’s more, direct use of propane for space heating, water heating, cooking, and clothes drying reduces greenhouse gas emissions by up to 50%.

Propane: Better for the Environment

Hands down, propane is better for the environment and for your home than electricity. Propane has such a low carbon content that it produces minimal emissions or air pollutants, making it a clean-burning energy source that can reliably heat water, fuel multiple appliances, and even power vehicles.

Consider this: it takes three units of source energy to get just one unit of electricity into your home. That means more coal often has to be burned to produce electricity. This generates even more carbon emissions to get electricity to homes.

Compare this to propane, which contains virtually no particulate matter–a known carcinogen–and releases significantly less carbon dioxide (CO2) than other energy sources.

Homes with propane-fueled furnaces also emit up to 50% less nitrogen oxide and 82% less sulfur oxide than technologies fueled by electricity. These types of emissions contribute to acid rain and cause respiratory ailments.
