Halloween is just two weeks away, and we all know what that means—candy, costumes, jack-o-lanterns and brisk fall air! Not to jump the gun, but we also know what comes hot on the heels of October 31st. Yes, we’re talking about Thanksgiving…then Christmas…then New Year’s Day…and, well, what images pop into your mind when you hear all of those holidays? Snow! Sweaters! Boots! Cold! High Utility Bills! Wait…like they used to say on Sesame Street, “one of these things is not like the others”. Which one seems out of place? Of course, the word “high” doesn’t need to describe your utility bills, that is if you’ve decided to heat your home with energy efficient propane!
Energy savings, peace of mind, comfort and flexibility — you want it all when it comes to heating your home with propane. With propane service by ThompsonGas, you don’t have to sacrifice affordability for home comfort ever again. More and more homeowners are making the switch from fuel oil and electric heating systems to affordable, efficient, environmentally friendly propane. Here’s why you should be next.
Propane Is The Versatile, Efficient Choice
Whether you want central or zone, forced air or radiant, propane home heating systems can be configured to meet your home needs. Propane furnaces come in all shapes and sizes, and an average lifespan is 15-20 years. Many qualify for tax credits and other incentives, saving you money on your purchase and installation costs.
Propane Is A Cleaner Source Of Heat
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that home heating propane systems generate 68% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than electricity. Propane also emits 50% less carbon than fuel oil. It’s an approved alternative fuel that’s perfect for any environmentally conscious homeowner.
Propane Is Ideal For Off-The-Grid Living
If you live in an area not served by a natural gas main, propane’s flexibility means you don’t have to trade quality of location for quality of living. In addition to fueling forced-air furnaces or boilers, propane can be used for radiant in-floor heat, space heating or direct vent fireplace heating. Contact your ThompsonGas representative to find out what’s best for your lifestyle.
Propane Is A Safe Fuel
The propane industry has numerous measures in place to ensure the safe transport and use of propane. All propane appliances are manufactured to rigorous safety standards. If liquid propane leaks, it doesn’t puddle but vaporizes and dissipates into the air. Because propane is virtually odorless and colorless in its natural state, a commercial odorant is added so propane can be detected if a leak were to occur.
