Five Advantages Of Propane Over Natural Gas

propane vs. natural gas new jerseyBoth propane and natural gas are popular choices for home heating.

If you are making the decision of whether to use propane or natural gas for your southern New Jersey home, we have some facts for you to show where propane has the clear advantage!

Propane is a more efficient fuel

Natural gas has 1,030 BTU (British Thermal Units, which are used to measure heat) per cubic foot. Propane? Has a whopping 2,490 BTU per cubic foot. You get more bang for your energy buck with propane.

Propane is on-site

When you have natural gas, it comes to your home from a public line in the street. With propane, your propane supply is right on your property. You don’t need a gas line on your street to enjoy the benefits of propane.

Propane is versatile

Since propane can be stored in tanks, it can be used to run your BBQ grill, your deck and patio heaters, fire pits and more! Blue Flame can keep you in propane tanks with our Lil’ Hank’s Tank Exchange at retail sites all over southern New Jersey.

Propane is environmentally friendly

Natural gas may be a clean fuel. But it is a greenhouse gas when it’s released into the air. Propane does not harm air, water or soil in the event it leaks into the air.

Propane is always there for you

If something happens to the public natural gas line in your neighborhood, you’re not getting natural gas in your home. That means no heat, no gas stove, no water heating for who knows how long. You don’t have that problem with propane since your propane supply is right next to your home. And with automatic propane delivery from Blue Flame, you’ll never have to worry about running out!
