The Case For Propane Explained 4 Different Ways

Find out why propane is the proper fuel of choice!

More and more of your neighbors here in southern New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania are turning to propane to not only heat their homes, but power an array of appliances within those homes that help to make the quality of life so much better.

What do they know about propane, that you don’t? Let’s take a look at four things that make the c-a-s-e for using propane in your home.

Propane Is Clean

Propane is one of the cleanest-burning fuels out there. When you use propane for home heating, you reduce your home’s carbon dioxide emissions by up to 30%. And using propane for heating, water heating, cooking, clothes drying, space heating, and more can cut your home’s greenhouse gas emissions by 50% when compared to electricity.

Unlike gasoline, diesel, or heating oil, propane is no threat to the environment in the rare event of a leak, either. Propane simply dissipates into the air. It does not harm the air, soil, water, plant life, aquatic life, or marine life.

Propane Is Abundant

You never have to worry about your propane supply due to shortage or foreign conflict. All domestic propane is made right here in the continental United States & Canada. In fact, our supply is so abundant that the U.S. is a globally known exporter of propane.

And with propane, your fuel supply is stored in your propane tank right there on your property. You aren’t at the mercy of a natural gas utility, or any instability around something going wrong with its infrastructure inadvertently cutting off the gas supply to your home.

Propane Is Safe

The propane industry not only operates under strong government regulations but also holds itself to high standards for safety. That’s why propane has such a strong safety record since its inception.

Did you know that propane is actually much less combustible than other fuels? When combined with air, the source of ignition must be at least 940º— nearly twice as hot as what’s required to ignite gasoline, for context.

Blue Flame makes sure our employees are trained in the latest standards for propane safety and put those standards into practice each and every day.

Propane Is Efficient

Today’s high-efficiency propane heating systems can reach efficiencies of up to 98%! That means almost every drop of the propane gas used goes towards heating. That’s far and away better than electricity. You’ll keep your home warm and comfortable with lower energy costs right alongside.
