Here at Bumgarner Propane, we know that your property is important to you, and we want to help you keep it comfortable. Whether you are trying to heat your home or business, we encourage you to consider using propane for that purpose. In this article, we’ll go over some of the advantages of propane heating in order to convince you to give it a try.
- It’s Warmer. One of the advantages of propane heating is that it actually makes you feel warmer than electric heating does. A propane gas furnace typically heats the air to between 130 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit, while an average electric heat pump won’t even warm the air to above body temperature (which means that the air will actually feel cool if you place your hand by a vent).
- It’s More Reliable. Another advantage of propane heating is that it is more reliable than electric heating. In the same way that you can still cook on a gas stove in the event of a power outage, a propane furnace will still be able to heat your space in the absence of electricity. If you want to make sure that your building and everyone in it will stay comfortable and warm in all situations, propane is the right choice.
- It’s Cheaper. A third advantage of propane heating is that it is more affordable than electric heating. For example, propane water heaters cost as much as one-third less to operate than their electric counterparts, and recover in half the time, as well.
