Propane— So Much More Than Just Grilling!

What Other Propane Appliances Can I Add To My Home This Year?

propane appliances new jerseyIf you use propane for your BBQ grill, you know about the ease and convenience of getting your propane cylinders from one of our many Lil’ Hank’s Tank Exchange locations in southern New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania.

But if that’s all you use propane for, you’re missing out on comfort, convenience, energy efficiency throughout your entire home! Thanks to propane’s versatility it can be used indoors and outside with a variety of applications.

With reliable propane delivery from Blue Flame and some new propane appliances, you can get all those benefits—and more. Here are just some of the ways propane can enhance the quality of life in your home:

Home Heating

Propane is vastly superior to electricity in all ways when it comes to keeping your home warm and comfortable.

Electric heat pumps can only heat air to about 98˚ Fahrenheit. That means it has to run more often—and longer—to heat your home. Propane furnaces on the other hand can heat air up to 140˚ Fahrenheit. Your home will stay warm without using as much energy, dramatically reducing your energy costs.

With propane, you also gain reliability that electricity can’t match. If a storm knocks out power in a home heated by electricity, that home has no heat. But because your propane supply is right at your home, you’re not dependent on a utility grid for heating your home.

Water Heating

Propane water heaters get your water hot faster than electric models and for less money while doing so. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, you can save about $174 per year with a propane water heater compared with an electric model.

Install a propane tankless water heater in your home, and those savings can increase big time. You’ll also have all the hot water you need—right on-demand!


A propane range lets you adjust heat levels instantly. With electricity, the burners take longer to heat up or cool down. That time can make the difference between a medium-rare steak and a medium-well steak.

Propane gives you more precision when you’re adjusting the heat. Electric stoves have set levels, with no option for anything in-between. Propane lets you set your heat to anywhere between low and high that works for what you’re cooking.

The burners on propane stoves distribute the heat more evenly than electric stoves. You’ll be much less likely to burn delicate foods like sauces or fish.


Grills aren’t the only way propane can make your backyard better. Propane patio heaters let you enjoy being outside even if there’s a nip in the air. A propane mosquito trap keeps bites at bay. Propane pool and spa heaters are much more efficient and cost-effective than electric pool and spa heaters and will have you using your backyard oasis well into the late fall—even early winter—seasons!
