Why Switch From Electric To Propane? Three Big Reasons

If you use electricity to run your home heating system and other home comfort appliances, you’re missing out on the many benefits that clean, green propane provides!

Compared to electricity, propane is:

  • More powerful: Like electricity, propane is versatile enough to power almost any appliance. The difference is that propane will almost always do a better job of it. A propane water heater, for example, will save you about 30 percent on your energy bills compared to an electric water heater while providing much faster recovery times (which means fewer cold showers!). You’ll save even more energy when you choose a propane tankless water heater.
  • More efficient: Manufacturers of electric-powered appliances often tout their efficiency, but they don’t take into account a much bigger efficiency issue: the energy lost bringing electricity to your NJ home. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, nearly two-thirds of electricity generated at most power plants is lost between the plant and the consumer. Propane gas, on the other hand, is a primary heat source that generates energy on the spot, with no loss along the way.
  • More eco-friendly: About half of the electricity generated in New Jersey is produced by burning natural gas, which is 95 percent methane – a greenhouse gas with 84 times the global warming potential of carbon dioxide over a 20-year period. When you choose clean-burning, lower-carbon propane, you significantly cut down on harmful atmospheric emissions. Propane is so friendly to the environment, in fact, that it’s the only alternative fuel listed in the The Clean Air Act of 1990.
