Increase Your Energy Efficiency With Propane
Save money—without sacrificing comfort.
When you have propane powering your home—or supplemental appliances within it—you have a wonderfully versatile fuel that can provide warm, cozy comfort, dry your clothes, cook your dinner, heat your water, and so more.
But that’s only the beginning of what propane can do. It can offer outstanding energy efficiency that not only lowers your bill but helps in shrinking your carbon footprint. What’s better? You get all of this without giving up a thing.
Here are just some of the ways propane can improve your home’s energy efficiency:
Did you know that heating water is the second-largest use of energy in your home behind home heating systems? When you consider that a propane-powered water heater can supply more hot water at both greater efficiency and faster, than an electric water heater, relying on propane for all your hot water requirements makes so much sense. We offer a variety of both tanked—and tankless—options from top name brands like Bosch and Buderus that can help fit your needs, and your budget! Get in touch today to get a quote on installation!
A propane gas furnace heats air to roughly 130-140 degrees Fahrenheit and runs it in short bursts to save money while maximizing comfort. It’s not at all the same as an electric heat pump, which creates air that can be chilly to the touch. A heat pump must rely on its onboard electric heat backup on cold nights. If that backup system activates, your energy cost may go through the roof! For the cold winter days and nights on the South Shore, propane wins easily.
You’ll be getting a variety of advantages by converting your old wood fireplace to a contemporary gas log set or upgrading to a fuel-efficient, clean-burning propane fireplace insert. It costs anywhere from 30 to 60 percent less to run a gas fireplace each hour than a wood-burning fireplace, which loses much of its heat through the chimney anyway.
Another method to improve the efficiency levels of your home is to install a high-efficiency direct-vent propane space heater. You won’t have to rely as much on your primary furnace if you use zone heating to the most utilized rooms in your home. Propane space heaters can also be used to make unheated spaces like sunporches and garages safe and comfortable to use in colder weather!
