Propane versatility

It’s amazing how many different ways you can use propane. It’s a super versatile fuel that can be used to fuel fireplaces, clothes dryers, outdoor grills, space heaters, water heaters, generators and more. Of course, propane can also heat your entire home as well.

When you use propane appliances in your North Carolina home, you’re going to see the savings. Because propane is such an efficient fuel, your energy expenses will go down and you’ll be getting even better value and comfort than you get from other heating sources.

Let’s take a closer look at the many propane appliances and other propane-powered equipment you can use to your advantage.

Warm up your home with propane

With a propane furnace, you’ll get warmer than you would on electric heat, and those cold – even chilly – nights will become a thing of the past. There’s really nothing like reliable, toasty comfort on a cold winter evening.

When you have a propane furnace, the indoor temperature is, simply, much higher. And don’t worry: you’re not sacrificing anything when it comes to efficiency! The thermal energy produced by a propane furnace is enough to heat your home – no backup system needed!

Serve up memorable meals by cooking with propane

Rather than feeling frustrated by an electric stove’s limitations, many people in North Carolina choose to use a propane gas stove/cooktop.

From more precise cooking control to quicker temperature changes – especially for lowering or shutting it off – propane is the way to go. And as a bonus, your propane gas stove will keep on working even if you lose power.

Propane fireplaces provide a warm glow

Take a look at just a few of the many benefits of propane gas fireplaces.

Clothes drying with propane

Whether your laundry pile regularly looks like a mountain or a molehill, it’s easy to find a propane dryer with a capacity that works for you.

Quickly reaching the required temperature to dry clothes evenly, propane dryers operate for about half the cost of electric dryers. Clothes experience less wear and tear as a result of the moist heat of propane dryers, and your propane dryer’s moisture-sensing controls will automatically shut it off at just the right time.

Propane keeps the hot water flowing

Propane water heaters offer roughly double the water recovery rate of electric models, yet they cost up to 30% less to operate. They take up less space while fueling some of the most efficient water technologies currently on the market. Propane water heaters also offer a higher level of accuracy when it comes to temperature adjustment, along with offering more installation choices and size options.

Take propane outside

Here are a number of ways you can enjoy your backyard with the efficiency and safety of propane.

Power up

It’s worth the investment to get a whole-house propane generator. In the event of a power outage, you won’t miss a beat, whether you need to charge electronic devices, or keep your heating, cooling, lighting or other essentials running. A propane generator will also ease your mind if you have a security system, sump pump or medical equipment.
