Propane has long been heralded as a leader in clean energy that 60 million Americans rely on. Whether you use it in your home, on the farm, or for your business, propane makes sense for both your pocketbook and the environment. According to the United States Department of Energy, it can cost twice as much to run your dryer, furnace, and water heater with electricity than with propane. Oxford homeowners and business owners can make the switch to propane and enjoy our worry-free propane delivery service. Here are several other reasons why you should consider propane.
Of all the fossil fuels, propane is the cleanest burning. Tests conducted by the United States Environmental Protection Agency shows that propane produces 90 percent less carbon monoxide and 50 percent fewer toxins than gasoline. Propane is also nontoxic and will not harm the soil we use for agriculture or contaminate the water we drink.
The Department of Energy put out a study saying that you can save up to 30 percent a year heating your water with propane instead of electricity. Propane can heat an entire tankful of water in a fraction of the time it takes electricity. In the event of a power outage, you still get to enjoy heat and hot water with propane heating and a propane water heater.
