Propane vs. Heating Oil

Get energy efficiency and versatility with propane!

If you currently heat your home with oil, you’re missing out all the benefits that propane could be bringing to your home. If your home’s oil-fired heating system is nearing the end of its lifespan, now is the time to make the move and switch to clean-burning, versatile, energy-efficient propane!

Save money with propane

The prospect of the expense of converting your heating system to propane may worry you, but it pays off in the long run.

First, when people convert to propane, their price per gallon for heating fuel usually drops dramatically. Not only that, new propane furnaces and boilers are often 20% – 30% more energy efficient than comparable oil-fired heating systems. Put those two together, and propane will save you money year after year on your annual heating costs!

Heating isn’t the only way propane can help you save money. Propane water heaters are incredibly cost-effective. A propane tankless water heater, for example, can reduce your water heating costs by 40% or more.

Protect the environment

Propane’s a much more environmentally friendly choice than heating oil. The energy efficiency we just referred to is one way. Another way is in greenhouse gas emissions. Propane has greatly fewer greenhouse gas emissions than heating oil.

Propane is also nontoxic. The environmental consequences of a heating oil spill can be devastating to the ecosystem and groundwater supply. Heating oil leaks or spills can lead to thousands of dollars in cleanup costs. In the rare event of a leak, propane does not harm the air, water, soil or plant or aquatic life. It simply dissipates into the air.

Get versatility

Propane can do a lot more than home heating and water heating. It also makes cooking easier and more fun with a propane range, gets clothes dry faster and with fewer wrinkles than electric dryers, lets you enjoy a fire in the fireplace without wood or cleanup and more!
