Propane vs. Electricity

For reliability and efficiency, propane is tops!

For many people, electricity is the first thing they think of when it comes to powering appliances in their home. It shouldn’t be that way because propane gives you environmental friendliness, energy efficiency and better performance!

Here are the ways that propane is a better choice than electricity for many appliances in your Orange County home. With dependable propane delivery from A.C. Howell, you can enjoy these benefits no matter where you live in our service area!

Energy efficiency

Propane produces far more BTU’s (measured unit of heat) per dollar than electricity. That not only lowers your energy costs for home heating, but for water heating as well. You’ll spend less money without having to give up one bit of comfort.

Environmental friendliness

You might be surprised to realize that electricity is not “cleaner” than propane despite the push by some municipalities and states to go all-electric. About half of the electricity generated in the United States is generated by coal-fired power plants. Electricity generation is a major contributor to greenhouse gases. Propane, on the other hand, is so clean burning it produces close to zero greenhouse gas emissions.

Better comfort

Propane water heaters heat more water faster than their electric counterparts, and propane tankless water heaters give you endless hot water whenever you need it for however long you need it. Propane clothes dryers get your laundry dry about 25% faster than comparable electric dryers. And they do it with less static cling, less wear and fewer wrinkles!

We’re just getting started when it comes to all propane can do in your home. Propane ranges give you precise, instant temperature control that no electric range ever can. Get a cozy, warm fire in a propane fireplace by just pushing a button.

Outdoors, propane can not only run your grill, but it can also heat your pool and spa faster and with better energy efficiency than electricity. You can enjoy your backyard more with propane deck and patio heaters, outdoor fireplaces, firepits, insect traps and outdoor lighting. A propane whole-house backup generator lets you keep your home safe and comfortable during power outages.
