The Benefits of Using Propane:

Propane is cheaper than electric.

Heating a home in the U.S. with propane costs far less than heating with electricity. For 2010, the representative average cost for propane was almost $10 less per million BTU compared to electricity. In addition, over time, propane water heaters can cost one-third less to operate as electric water heaters.

Propane is warmer than electric.

A propane gas furnace heats air to about 130°F to 140°F while an electric heat pump produces heat nearly 50 degrees cooler.

Propane is more dependable than electric.

Propane can be stored safely in a tank on your property, while electricity is subject to power outages.

Propane is more versatile than electric.

It can be used to power so many things:

  • your home

Propane has long been recognized as the "green" energy. It is an approved alternative fuel listed in both the Clean Air Act of 1990 and the National Energy Policy Act of 1992. 

The Benefits of Using Heating Oil:

Heating oil is green.

Heating oil equipment creates such a minor amount of emissions that it is not even regulated by the Federal Clean Air Act. 

Heating oil is dependable.

With heating oil, you benefit from having your fuel source safely stored in a tank on your property, with no need to worry about the weather or disruptions in the fuel supply.

Heating oil is efficient.

Due to major advancements being made in heating oil burner technology, some heating oil systems now boast efficiency ratings of over 95%!
