The phrase “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia” has become a part of the American Lexicon used to shine a spotlight on someone, or something, that continues to be overlooked and under appreciated. Depending on your age, you may know the origin of this name repeated three times in a hopeless, frustrating tone as coming from the seventies sitcom “The Brady Bunch”. Poor Jan, the cute, arguably most intelligent child of Mike and Carol’s merged family was always overshadowed by Marsha, her more popular older sister. We know this may sound like a stretch, but it’s kind of the same when it comes traditional fuel sources; propane, for some unknown reason, seems to not get as much recognition as it’s more popular siblings. Why?

It’s really a mystery with the answer alluding experts for decades…with all the benefits associated with propane, why do customers continue to use natural gas, oil and electric? Let’s take a look at just some of the reasons you should convert to propane.

Propane Is Safe

Those not familiar with propane gas seem to think it is more dangerous than other fuel sources. How this incredible fuel was labeled with that reputation is anyone’s guess, but the fact is propane is just as safe, if not more so, than a variety of other fuel sources. The propane industry has some of the most stringent safety regulations in the world, and here at ThompsonGas, our entire team always puts your family’s safety first.
