propane benefitsHave you noticed more propane tanks appearing outside homes in your community? That’s because many of your neighbors have discovered how propane benefits the quality of life in their home!

Propane is extraordinarily energy efficient.

Propane heating has an average efficiency of more than 90%. That means less than 10% of fuel is wasted in the combustion process. In comparison, more than two-thirds of the energy used by a power plant to generate and transmit electricity is wasted.

And compared to heating sources such as heating oil, predominantly used in the northeast United States, oil-fired furnaces typically produce heat at about 60% efficiency, meaning that for every dollar spent on heating oil, you’ll only get about 60 cents worth of heat.

It’s also an incredibly safe fuel source.

Propane is an alternative fuel source that does not produce a volume of high carbon emissions. It’s made from the process of refining crude oil and natural gas. Since it is a light, simple hydrocarbon, it is one of the cleanest burning fossil fuels. In addition, it is non-toxic, meaning that is not harmful to soil or water and will not endanger the environment in the case of a spill or leak.

Off-grid living is made possible with propane’s versatility!

So much of the Pico Propane and Fuels service area is in places where natural gas service isn’t available, or is prohibitively expensive. And in the more remote areas, getting any kind of utility service can be a challenge, and a costly one at that. But with a propane tank right on your own property, you can enjoy comfort and more off-grid living.
