For many people, the only time propane is used is to fuel their summer BBQ grill. However, there is so much more that propane can do, either occasionally or on a long-term basis. The more things you convert over to propane or add to your home, the more getting those small tanks refilled will annoy you. At some point it may be best to switch over to a large tank by moving forward with the propane tank installation process. Here are a few ways in which propane can be used in your home:
- Cooking – Propane is good for more than outdoor grills. It can also be used for indoor cooking. Having a propane stove as either your primary or as a backup is a great way to be able to cook for your family if the power goes out.
- Heat – Propane fireplaces and heaters can provide a backup to your home’s heating system as well as provide nice ambiance. Patio heaters are a great way to extend the season on your deck or outdoor living spaces. Speaking of enjoying the outdoors, consider propane-powered mosquito catchers in the summer.
- Appliances – There are any number of appliances that can be operated with propane. They are built primarily for RVs, but make nice backups as well. You can also get a propane-powered water heater.
Propane tank installation can also be the best option for remote locations like vacation homes, hunting cabins, and other “off grid” situations.
