If you’re like most homeowners, the fuel you use to heat your home is probably whatever was already in place when you purchased your home. While this might seem like the easiest option, are you sure you aren’t needlessly spending extra money on heating or doing more harm to the environment than you would like? Propane is generally the cleanest and most cost-effective fuel source, so it’s an energy source to consider.
Propane vs. Oil
With the rise of energy prices in the last few decades, oil is now the most expensive fuel source, so propane provides a clear cost advantage gallon for gallon. Propane is also more efficient, so you’ll also be saving money by using less fuel. Propane also has the advantage of burning cleaner, so you’re saving the environment both by using less fuel and by putting less pollutants into the air. Finally, propane heating systems generally come with bigger fuel tanks, and this allows you to fill up during warm weather when prices are low and skip an expensive winter top off.
Propane vs. Gas
As with oil, natural gas is both more expensive per unit and requires you to use more fuel, so propane remains the cheapest option. While natural gas is cleaner than oil, it is still considered to be a greenhouse gas while propane is not, so propane is the more environmentally-friendly option. Most appliances that use gas can be easily converted to propane by changing the fittings connecting them to the fuel supply.
