About Propane Appliances    

Propane appliances are becoming increasingly popular in the home these days because they are more energy efficient and cost-effective than traditional electrical appliances. Making the switch to propane appliances not only saves you money but saves the environment because propane is a clean-burning fuel.

Most homeowners don’t know that nearly all appliances in the home that run on electricity can also run on propane. When you use propane you can rest assured knowing that if a power outage occurs after a hurricane or snowstorm, you will still be able to use your appliances. Some propane appliances do not rely on electricity so you will never again be at the mercy of the power companies waiting for your power to be turned back on.

Propane Stovetops, Ranges, and Ovens

Propane stovetops, ranges, and ovens are far superior to electric, as any home cook can tell you. These propane-powered appliances give you instant heat and complete temperature control, eliminating the agonizingly long wait for the oven to preheat or the sauté pan to reach the perfect temperature. Your baked good, casseroles, omelets, and stir-fries will come out perfect every time when you use propane power. If you enjoy cooking or baking, a propane oven, range or stovetop is a must.

Propane Dryers

Any homeowner knows that laundry is a never-ending chore. No matter how much laundry you do there never seems to be an end in sight. The regular home dryer generally takes an hour or more to thoroughly dry a load of clothes, causing a huge backup in your laundry flow. Most people don’t realize there is an easier way to make a dent in their laundry than the traditional electric dryer. The secret is propane.

Propane Dryers Save Time and Money

Propane dryers can dry up to ¾ faster than the traditional electric dryer and have a shut-off mechanism that turns the dryer off when the clothes are dry, saving the average homeowner up to 65% on costs associated with drying clothes.

Clothes Last Longer With Propane Dryers

Not only are propane dryers fast and cost-efficient, but they also produce moist heat, which virtually eliminates static cling. The moist heat from a propane dryer also prevents discoloration, shrinking, and burning of fabrics, which eliminates the additional expense of replacing ruined clothes.

Propane Refrigerators and Freezers

Propane refrigerators and freezers are a great way to keep food cold without having to rely on electricity. Also called absorption refrigerators, propane refrigerators get their power through a propane burner rather than the standard electric pump found in the regular household refrigerator. These propane refrigerators and freezers are also ideal for RV owners because they can be used off the electric grid.

Propane Lighting

Outdoor Propane Lighting

Propane lighting is a great choice for your home’s outdoor spaces. It adds a soft glow to the garden or yard, unlike other outdoor lights that emit a harsh, bright light that is tough on the eyes and attracts insects. Propane lights also run without electricity so homeowners are no longer limited to placing their lighting near an electrical outlet or tasked with running electric wiring or extension cords to their lights. Propane lights can be used anywhere in the yard to highlight and illuminate your space – the possibilities are endless.

Indoor Propane Lighting

Most homeowners don’t realize that propane lights can also be used indoors. They are a great alternative to traditional lamps, chandeliers and sconces that need electric light bulbs that use a lot of electricity and burn out often. Indoor propane lighting lasts a long time, reducing maintenance and electricity costs. Propane lights are also perfect for RV owners because they are portable and work where electricity is not available.

Optimizing Heat Output for Gas Fireplaces

500 Gallon Above Ground Propane Tank For Sale

If your home is out in a fairly rural area and not near natural gas lines, your two fireplace options are wood or propane gas. There are many reasons you will be happy with a gas fireplace over wood. Starting a fire is as simple as flipping a switch as opposed to all the wood and kindling you have to lug into the house to set up a traditional wood fireplace. On top of that, let’s not get started talking about the differences in clean-up afterward. While a propane gas fireplace does offer a clean and efficient alternative to wood, there are still steps you need to take to maintain it and optimize its heat output.

A Direct Vent Gas Fireplace Is the Best

You are already a step ahead in terms of optimizing the amount of heat you receive from a fireplace by going with a direct vent gas fireplace. Approximately 70 percent of its heat stays in the house as opposed to either a cordwood fireplace or a gas fireplace that still has a flue. Most of the heat generated by a fire going right up and out the flue is not very efficient at all for staying warm on a cold winter’s night.

Get Your Propane Fireplace Inspected and Maintained Regularly

Maintenance of your propane gas fireplace involves cleaning out debris from the vents as well as checking the faux logs and inspecting the gas lines for leaks. Any debris in the vents can increase the operating costs and reduce your energy savings, which is a big reason for having a propane fireplace. Such maintenance will also extend the life of your fireplace. Additionally, if it’s a propane fireplace, you will need to schedule occasional propane refills to keep enjoying those winter nights in front of the fire.

Choose the Right Amount of Heat Output for Your Room Size

Gas fireplaces come in a variety of models with vastly different heat output ranges. If you are actually interested in using a fireplace to heat the room it’s in, instead of merely for aesthetics, then its heat output becomes an important consideration. You don’t want one that puts out too much heat for a room of a given size because then you are wasting energy and giving yourself a hot rather than cozy room. There is a formula for determining optimum heat output for a gas fireplace, so you are getting just what you need for a given room and no more.
