What You Need to Know About Propane Heating

To help you decide if propane heating is right for you, our team has put together this article going over some key information you need to know about the subject.

  • Propane Heating has Many Applications – While many people already know propane can be used to fire grills, not as many people know it has a variety of other applications as well. Propane can be used to heat outdoor pools, power emergency generators, fire your indoor cooktop or fireplace, and even power your furnace.
  • Propane Heating is Ideal for Rural Properties – If your home or business is located in a city, it’s easy to install a connection to the municipal gas lines and use them to heat your building. However, if your property is in a more rural area, far away from this kind of infrastructure, propane heating is likely your best option—our team can install a propane tank on your property and keep it well supplied with gas to keep your building warm.
  • You Can Buy or Rent Propane Tanks – The last thing we want you to know about propane heating is that there are two options when it comes to your tank—you can buy a tank outright or rent it from the gas company. If you choose to buy a tank, you’ll have a higher upfront cost to deal with, but after that, you’ll only have to pay for the fuel, not any other service costs. On the other hand, renting a tank comes with a monthly fee, but it also saves you from having to be responsible for your own maintenance and upkeep.
