Are you seeking for alternative energy sources for heating your home? Perhaps you’ve heard that natural gas leaves a large carbon footprint, and you are interested in ways to reduce yours. If this is the case for you, you may want to consider looking into propane as your fuel source for heating your home.
Propane first entered the scene as a fuel source around 1910. Since that time, it has increased in popularity, being used to heat homes, power vehicles and as a fuel source for BBQs, among other things. Homes began being heated using liquid propane shortly after the discovery of propane.
Today, there are various reasons why you may opt for propane as your fuel of choice. In the past, propane has been a more cost-effective choice for heating; however, at this time, it is comparable to or slightly more expensive than natural gas. Even though this is the case, there are two main reasons people still choose propane as their source for heating fuel:
- Propane provides you with approximately double the amount of energy that the same amount of natural gas would.
- Propane is non-toxic and environmentally-friendly, thus it will reduce your carbon footprint. In addition, propane is seen as a safe and reliable source of energy.
