Propane is one of the cleanest, most versatile and efficient fuels around. It’s a domestically sourced alternative fuel that can provide steady, reliable heat energy at an affordable price. Propane also offers exceptional performance and efficiency in a wide range of home appliances at a much lower cost than electricity.
Bottini Fuel continues to be the propane provider of choice in the Hudson Valley because:
Why are so many customers choosing to use propane?
Propane provides terrific value for running a wide range of home appliances. Propane is also nontoxic and produces fewer carbon emissions than electric appliances. The list of household appliances and other equipment that can run on propane might surprise you.
Propane for endless hot water
Imagine never running out of hot water! When you replace your inefficient electric water heater with a propane unit—either one with a storage tank or an innovative tankless version—you’ll be able to enjoy virtually unlimited hot water. Propane water heaters generate much more hot water at a cheaper cost per gallon.
Tankless propane water heaters incorporate a hot propane flame to heat water instantly on demand, rather than burning fuel constantly to keep a huge tank of water ready at all times. That will help you keep fuel costs down—in many cases by as much as 40%. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, homes that heat water with propane rather than electricity can see average annual savings of $174.
Tankless units also take up considerably less space. About the size of a carry-on suitcase, they can be wall mounted and located almost anyplace—closets, attics, crawl spaces—making them a great solution for additions.
Propane for convenience and efficiency
The same technology that makes propane ideal for water heaters makes it a smarter choice than electricity to power all kinds of appliances that use hot water or heat, including:
Propane is also a smart choice for indoor and outdoor fireplaces. A propane-fueled fireplace provides all the warmth and charm of a wood-burning version, without the soot and ash and the need for kindling.
And there’s a reason gas is the choice of professional chefs, hands down. The high degree of control and precise temperatures you get with a gas range can’t be beat—and propane grills offer the same control, plus are much cleaner and easier to use.
When storms knock out power, a propane-fueled backup generator will keep your lights and everything else running until the utility companies can make repairs. In addition, a gas stove will continue to work during a power outage. Now, that’s convenient.
What makes propane so efficient?
Propane generates more Btu’s than an equivalent amount of electricity, so you need much less propane to produce the same amount of heat or energy. Also, propane appliances are extremely efficient so they waste very little fuel in the combustion process. On the other hand, about two-thirds of the energy used by a power plant to generate and transmit electricity is wasted.
