Propane is a clean, energy-dense, and environmentally-friendly source of energy – and if you use it in your next home improvement project, you’ll be able to enjoy a huge variety of benefits!

So whether you’re just replacing a few kitchen appliances, or overhauling a DIY, “fixer-upper” home, here are a just a few of the reasons that you should consider using propane during your next home improvement project.
1. Propane Saves You Money
Propane is affordable because it’s the byproduct of two common fossil fuel processing steps – petroleum refining and natural gas processing. This means that you can get a large volume of propane for a low cost!
In addition, propane is extremely energy-dense. Per cubic foot, it contains 2,516 BTUs – compared to a typical value of 1,030 BTUs for natural gas. This means that you can save money by using less gas – and you can store a larger volume of propane in a smaller space.
Propane is also extremely efficient for heating applications, compared to electric heaters and furnaces. In fact, a study by the U.S Department of Energy revealed that you can save up to 30% on your power bill by choosing propane to heat your home.
2. Propane Does Not Rely On The Power Grid Or Natural Gas Lines
Serious natural disasters can knock out the power grid for multiple days – leading to serious power outages and other issues. Even natural gas supplies can be interrupted by hurricanes, tornadoes, and other incidents.
Propane, on the other hand, is usually supplied by a dedicated, off-the-grid tank located on your property. This means that any propane appliances you have – washers and dryers, stoves, furnaces and more – are still perfectly functional, even in case of a serious natural disaster.
3. Propane Can Be Used For Dozens Of Different Applications
Propane is useful for much more than just fueling your GrillMaster in the summer months! You can use propane to power:
- Washers and dryers
- Stoves and ovens
- Fireplaces and firepits
- Water heaters
- Fridges and freezers
- Patio and interior lighting
With the right propane-based appliances, you can save big – and enjoy the numerous benefits of propane. You can even invest in a propane generator, which will allow you to use it to power all of your electrical appliances in case of an electrical outage!
4. Propane Appliances Last Longer Than Electric Appliances
Propane appliances such as kitchen ovens and ranges and tankless/tank-based water heaters tend to last much longer than electric appliances.
For example, electric ranges usually last 10-13 years, while gas-powered ranges easily last 15 years or longer. Electric furnaces usually last about as long as propane units – 20-25 years – but are much less energy-efficient. Tankless propane water heaters usually last around 15+ years, while electric tank-based water heaters usually don’t make it past a decade.
