Propane is a reliable, versatile, efficient and green way to heat your home and water, cook your food, dry your clothes and power a range of other products.

In this post, we want to enumerate some of the key advantages propane offers to homeowners in Flagstaff and across our Northern Arizona service area.

Propane is reliably American-made.

Over 90% of U.S. propane supplies come from right within our borders. A robust distribution network ensures that you can always get this fuel, and Superior Propane always has ample supplies to serve our customers. Plus, having a propane tank on your property ensures that you’re not dependent on a natural gas utility with less-than-reliable infrastructure.

Propane equipment is exceptionally efficient.

Let’s start by talking about how effectively propane can produce heat energy. Each gallon of our fuel generates roughly 91,452 British thermal units, the heating equivalent of about 27 kilowatt hours of electricity. Propane has double the heating capacity per cubic foot as natural gas.

And today’s propane products have fantastic efficiency ratings. Propane furnaces can have fuel efficiencies as high as 98.5%. Propane water heaters can generate hot water approximately twice as fast as their electric counterparts. Propane tankless water heaters produce virtually unlimited hot water on demand, using even less energy in the process.

You can also enjoy quicker cooking times and shorter laundry drying cycles when you choose a propane product instead of an electric one. In short, with propane, you get a lot of home comfort for your energy dollar!

Propane has functions all over your house.

In addition to the household uses already discussed, you can use propane for your fireplace insert or gas log. Propane space heaters provide warmth for hard-to-reach rooms, guest houses, garages and other detached spaces. You can supercharge your outdoor fun with propane-powered grills, pool heaters, patio heaters, firepits, outdoor fireplaces and lighting. Propane generators safeguard your home against unexpected grid outages. That’s a lot of uses from one versatile fuel.

Propane is green — and getting greener!

Using propane in your home means you’re doing your part to help the planet. Propane is a low-carbon fuel that has been recognized in both the Clean Air Act and the National Energy Policy as an alternative fuel. It contains zero methane, a potent greenhouse gas, and emits virtually no particulate matter.

And propane is getting greener! In the future, expect to hear a lot about renewable propane , which retains the benefits of conventional propane but has a much lower carbon intensity. While not in wide use yet, renewable propane production is rapidly increasing.
