2013 New Year’s Resolution: Switch to Propane!

Each year we make the same ol’ New Year’s resolutions, but how many of us actually keep our promises? This year, why not resolve to do something that will benefit your family, the environment and your wallet: switch from oil/electric to propane. Based on five of the most common New Year’s resolutions, we’ve put together a list of reasons why 2013 could be the year of savings by converting from oil to propane.
1.Lose Weight (Cut Energy Use)
An approved, clean fuel, propane is one of the cleanest burning of all fossil fuels. Per pound of fuel burned, coal emits more than twice the amount of carbon dioxide as propane. Appliances powered by propane are 10-15% more efficient than oil and electric. Propane-fueled vehicles produce 30-90% less carbon monoxide and about 50% fewer toxins and other emissions than gasoline engines. Propane is nontoxic, so it’s not harmful to soil or water either.
2.Get Out of Debt (Save Money by Powering Your Home with Propane)
With propane gas services by ThompsonGas, you could save your household $500-$1,000 each year with residential propane. Propane savings are nearly $1.4 per gallon compared to current oil and electric prices. While a 53 gallon electric tank water heater could run you $585 a year to operate, a standard tankless propane water heater costs only $375 a year. In short, you could save 35% in costs annually!
3.Spend More Time with Family & Friends
Gather the family around a warm fireplace for game night, or invite all your friends over for Sunday night football and burgers on your propane-powered grill. From propane home heating, to cooking and grilling, ThompsonGas will help you get the most from your propane home. Whether you’re grilling outside, heating your swimming pool or spa, or fueling your indoor fireplace, propane is the choice fuel for energy-efficient, convenient and reliable family fun.
4.Learn Something New 
Did you know with more than 6,000 retail dealer locations, propane is readily available all throughout the U.S.? Used for everything from cooking, heating and cooling, to farm equipment, emergency generators and lighting, propane is more versatile than you think. Thanks to portable tanks, propane can be used in areas beyond gas mains. Fleet vehicles, cargo vans and even police cruisers can run more efficiently with propane, and nearly 97% of propane consumed in the U.S. is produced in North America.
