It's a question many folks have asked. And, a question that's been answered quite well. Because millions worldwide are using propane to make their lives more comfortable. Of course, that's not surprising. After all, the advantages of propane are tough to beat. Propane is an environmentally friendly choice you can make today. Because propane burns cleaner, works harder, and operates smarter, choosing propane means you can help reduce greenhouse emissions, save energy, and protect the environment.
Propane has long been recognized as a "green" energy. By using this exceptional energy with low carbon content, homeowners can help cut greenhouse gas emissions, improve air quality, and protect the environment. Propane is an approved alternative fuel listed in both the Clean Air Act of 1990 and the National Energy Policy Act of 1992 and 2005.
Almost 90 percent of all propane is produced right here in the United States. You can always count on it. Propane gas — used by millions of households each year — gives homeowners a reliable source of energy to fuel appliances inside and outside the home. Reliability and energy efficiency are seen as ‘very important’ by homeowners in the selection of an energy source for major home appliances. Long-term value and a clean-burning energy source are also viewed as important. (CARAVAN® Omnibus Survey, March 2008).
Propane provides great value because it burns hotter and more efficiently than many other energy sources, powering a variety of high-performance and energy-efficient appliances.
Propane has quite a remarkable safety record, due in large part to the stringent codes and regulations developed by the propane industry and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Statistics compiled by the NFPA indicate that the safest way to heat is with gas.
Propane is simply the smarter choice, so the question should be "Why use anything else?".
