How Else Can You Use Propane? Let Us Count the Ways!
In Your Home
Did you know that you can also use propane in your home? According to DiSanto Propane, “nearly 11 billion gallons of propane are consumed annually” in the United States alone. Here’s how it’s used:
Heating and Cooling
Propane power generators can be used to power the appliances in your home. We’re right in the middle of winter and knowing that you and your family are safe and protected in the event of a major storm brings with it plenty of peace of mind.
DiSanto Propane also notes that “propane water heaters run continuously on demand and they have triple the water flow” of their non-propane counterparts. If you have a large family, chances are that you currently worry about being the last one to take a shower at night because you know it’s going to get chilly. With propane water heaters, this just doesn’t happen. Sounds like a win to us!
You can save almost a fifth of your total energy costs when you use a propane dryer in your home. The benefit is that it decreases your family’s carbon footprint and utilizes moist heat, ensuring plenty of life for your clothes.
On the Job
Propane can also be used to power forklifts, heat construction sites, and more! Did you know that some cars, shuttles, buses, and vans are even capable of running on propane? Once again, DiSanto Propane has a full breakdown of commercial propane uses and some of them might surprise you. In short, if you’re a business owner, there’s a good chance that you can find some way or another to benefit from propane!
