Consider swapping heating oil for propane

If your current heating system uses heating oil, you’re missing out all the benefits that propane could be bringing to your home. If your 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!

Propane helps you save money

Converting your heating system to propane may sound daunting at first, but the process it simple, and it pays off. Here’s how:

  • Propane is cheaper. When people convert to propane, their price per gallon for heating fuel usually drops dramatically.
  • It’s also more energy-efficient. New propane furnaces and boilers are often 20% – 30% more energy efficient than comparable oil-fired heating systems.
  • Propane is versatile. Heating isn’t the only way propane can help you save money. A propane tankless water heater, for example, can reduce your water heating costs by 40%. Propane makes cooking easier with a propane range, gets clothes dry faster and with fewer wrinkles than electric dryers, and easily fires up the fireplace – no wood or cleanup necessary!
  • The savings only grow when you add appliances. Even if you don’t have any propane appliances yet, once your propane heating system is set up, you can add energy-efficient propane appliances at your convenience.

The bottom line? Propane will save you money year after year on your annual heating and energy costs, from Port Jervis to Pine Bush and all around Orange County. Contact us to learn more.

Propane price swings are more moderate than heating oil

Why is propane more affordable than heating oil? Price swing trends with propane tend to be more moderate compared to heating oil, gasoline, and other fuels derived from a barrel of crude oil. This is because propane is a completely domestic form of energy. The U.S. actually exports about twice as much propane to the rest of the world than we use in our own country.

Even though propane is still priced in the world market like oil is, this abundance of domestic North American supply gives us supply security and helps moderate the pricing in the U.S. That’s good news for New York propane customers, both now and in the future!
