In America alone, 18 billion gallons of propane are used every year to meet the demands of household needs and workloads, like cooking food, washing clothes, making shelters safe and comfortable, and even making vehicles run.

A few people may use propane alone; however, there are some other people who use propane alongside electricity in their homes to save money and be environmentally friendly. Below are the plentiful benefits associated with propane use that may encourage you to use it as an alternative fuel for your Greater West Michigan home :

Propane is totally environmental-friendly.
Propane has been certified as a clean fuel and is an approved alternative fuel by both the Clean Air Act of 1990 and the National Energy Policy Act of 1992. Propane or “green” energy fuel is not toxic and cannot be dissolved in water because it is in a gas form; therefore, it does not spill over and does not leave an excess element or substance. Propane has low-carbon content, which means that it has a small number of emissions; it is a by-product of the natural gas-considered clean source and the effects on the environment is totally friendly. Moreover, it is not toxic since the gas and liquid forms are not an environmental threat even if it is discharged in water, soil or air. If ever released in the air, the greenhouse gas effect is less because propane is a hydrocarbon gas and the after-effect on the atmosphere is minimal.

Propane is cost-effective.
A house using propane as fuel has minimal costs compared to an electricity-fueled house, based on studies by comparing electricity and propane using the BTU (British Thermal Unit), done by measuring the heating value of the two fuels. The U.S. Department of Energy reported that the national fuel prices show that electricity has twice the cost against propane. Therefore, based on the same heating value, propane is more cost-effective than electricity.

Propane is easily accessible and available.
In truth, almost 90% of propane used in the United States originated in this country. Our country has abundant natural resources – natural gas and petroleum and the availability is not a problem. In fact, over 95% of propane is produced here in North America.

Propane can be stored easily and is worry-free to use.
Propane tanks are portable anywhere, require low maintenance, and can even last up to 40 years. They can be shifted and be used to different locations, wherever it may be.

Propane is secure and safe.
Due to the strict implementation of stringent codes and regulations by the propane industry and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), propane has a good safety record. As per NFPA statistics compilation, the safest way to heat is with gas, compared to other energy sources which require more safety steps.

Propane is highly reliable in case of emergencies.
If blackouts happen (when there is no electricity), propane can make appliances workable and does not leave you in the dark nor make your house cold. As per the study, a gallon of propane can give 27-kilowatt hours of electricity and 91,600 Btus.

With these benefits, you can change your fuel source now to propane! Propane’s environmental-friendliness, cost-effectiveness, easy accessibility and availability, easy storage, and safe/secured fuel makes it your ideal and practical choice as a new fuel source.
