Why Convert From Electricity To Propane?
Written on: March 29, 2021
If you use electricity to power some or all of the home comfort equipment in your North Carolina home, you’re not alone…but you are missing out on the many benefits that clean, green propane can give you.
Compared to electricity, propane is more:
- Powerful: Propane provides far more BTUs—and added warmth—per dollar than electric. It’s a very important factor to consider when choosing how to heat a home here in North Carolina.
- Versatile: Propane is every bit as versatile as electricity, able to run your space heaters, water heater, clothes dryer, backup power generators, and more. The only difference is that propane will usually do the job better than electricity while using less energy along the way.
- Eco-friendly: More than one-third of the electricity is generated in North Carolina is produced by burning natural gas, which is mostly methane—a gas that is more than 80 times more effective at trapping heat than carbon dioxide. Another 25 percent of North Carolina’s electricity is generated by burning coal, another greenhouse gas. By contrast, burning propane produces almost no GHGs when burned.
- Safe: Propane will not ignite until the air reaches 940° F, and there must be a very specific combination of propane and oxygen for propane to burn. Fires cause by electricity, on the other hand, are common—in fact, electrical problems are the second-leading cause of home fires.
