Propane: The Greenest Option

About Propane


Propane is one of the most environmentally friendly choices you can make today.  It burns cleaner, and works harder, than other heating fuels.  Choosing propane means you can help reduce greenhouse emissions, conserve energy, protect the environment, and save money.

Why Propane

There are countless reasons why millions of people worldwide use propane to make their lives more comfortable.

  • Clean - Propane is clean burning and non-toxic.  Propane has long been recognized as a “green” energy.  By using this exceptional energy with low carbon content, homeowners can help cut greenhouse gas emissions, improve air quality, and protect the environment.
  • Reliable - Propane works when and where other energy sources don’t.  Almost 90 percent of all propane is produced right here in the United States.  You can always count on it.  Propane gas, used by millions of households each year, gives homeowners a reliable source of energy to fuel appliances both inside and outside the home.
  • Good value - Propane can offer significant savings over the alternatives because propane is more energy efficient.  Propane provides great value because it burns hotter and more efficiently than many other energy sources, powering a variety of high-performance and energy-efficient appliances.
  • Safe - Propane has built-in safety properties along with stringent safety regulations.  Propane won’t ignite when combined with air unless the source of ignition reaches 940° Fahrenheit.  Propane gas is nontoxic and produces minimal emissions.  Furthermore, propane is not harmful to soil or water, making it truly a ‘Green Fuel’.  Propane has quite a remarkable safety record, due in large part to the stringent codes and regulations developed by the propane industry and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Statistics compiled by the NFPA indicate that the safest way to heat is with propane.
