In fact, propane is one of the safest fuel options for your home.

And it’s environmentally friendly—so much so that it was named as an alternative fuel in both the 1990 Clean Air Act and the 1992 Energy Policy Act. You’ll also get outstanding energy efficiency with propane appliances, helping you save on energy costs.
