Unfortunately, what they think they know beyond that may be actually be untrue about propane. We’re here to clear up fact from fiction.

Myth #1: Propane is unsafe

WRONG. Propane is just as safe as any other energy source you could use in your home. And in some ways, propane may even be safer!

Strict government regulations at the local, state, and national level, along with strong propane industry safety standards for propane manufacturing, handling, delivery, service, and equipment installation and maintenance have led to propane having an outstanding safety record in comparison to other forms of home heating fuels.

Myth #2: Propane is a “dirty” fuel

NOT TRUE. Propane has half the carbon emissions of heating oil, and fewer emissions than electricity generated by coal-fired power plants. Propane is so clean-burning that it is named as an alternative fuel in both the 1990 Clean Air Act and the 1992 National Energy policy.

Myth #3: Propane is expensive

NOPE. In fact, propane is one of the most cost-effective energy sources out there. When you factor the total cost of ownership when it comes to not only propane, but propane equipment and services, propane comes out on top. Because of its clean-burning, propane appliances experience less wear and tear day-to-day, and enjoy a longer life expectancy because of it. Also, you save money because today’s propane appliances have efficiencies of up to 98%, meaning you’ll spend less on energy costs as well.
