Switching From Electric to Propane Power
The Benefits of Converting
With inflation rates being what they are, everyone is looking for ways to cut costs. Perhaps you’re thinking about switching your southeastern Massachusetts home from electric to propane power. As you consider your options, let’s take a look at some of the benefits of switching from electric to propane power for your home.
Propane Is Reliable
Propane is self-contained, and so it stands alone. You don’t need gas lines, and you don’t have to be dependent on the power grid. Given how much more common extreme weather events have become and how often the power grid fails, switching to propane could give you peace of mind.
Propane Is Versatile
Propane can do a lot inside and outside your home. In addition to warming your home and water, it can help you cook like a pro indoors and out with a propane stove or grill. Propane clothes dryers save you time and energy because they work faster than electric dryers and leave you with fewer wrinkles. Propane space heaters help you add comfort to any space. And propane pool heaters let you swim in comfort for more of the year. There are so many ways propane appliances can enhance the quality of life in your home.
Propane Is Efficient
A lot of propane appliances like clothes dryers, water heaters, and space heaters work more efficiently than their electric counterparts. That saves you time and money, and it’s good for the environment.
Propane Is Economical
Because propane appliances operate so efficiently, using propane saves you money. Propane also tends to have better price stability, so you’ll always have a good idea of what to expect when it comes to your energy bills.
Propane Is Clean & Green
Propane is a clean-burning fuel that produces relatively few greenhouse gas emissions. Because propane burns so cleanly, it’s good for the longevity of your appliances. Most electricity, however, is generated in coal-burning power plants. In fact, the production of electricity is America’s second-largest source of greenhouse gases.
