During the winter and summer months, when temperatures rise and fall, electric bills can be shocking. We’ve all been there.
One way to ease that pain and the dent in your bank account, is to make the switch to propane.
Maybe it’s not your whole house. Maybe it’s just one appliance at a time.
As a low-carbon, clean burning fuel, propane is significantly better for the environment and for your bottom line, and it can be used to power nearly everything in your home.
If you already use propane to heat your water or your home and need to replace an aging appliance, it’s a good time to make the switch.
Here are a few other examples of how you can use propane inside and outside of your home.
Who wants to spend all day doing laundry? Propane dryers can help ease this by burden by offering faster drying times than electric models.
Propane dryers are also easier on fabrics and reduce wrinkles.
Best of all, propane saves about 20% annually compared with electric clothes dryers, according to the Propane Energy Research Council.
And if you like gadgets, propane dryers also offer the latest innovations such as steam cycles to de-wrinkle and freshen garments, drum lights to better see into the unit, and LCD control screens for ease of use.

Also, if you have an outdoor pool or spa, you can use propane keep them warm all season long, which means more fun for you.
Just like an indoor gas range, propane grills give you instant on-off convenience and precision temperature control for a perfectly done meal, every time.
