Cost & energy efficient
Per litre, propane is generally cheaper than oil or electricity. In addition to this, propane furnaces are highly energy efficient with ratings above 90%. Propane powered equipment makes for a great long-term choice since it burns cleaner, lasts longer and is far less expensive to operate and maintain.
Propane’s simple chemical make-up allows it to burn much cleaner than coal, fuel oil, gasoline, diesel, ethanol and even natural gas in some cases. Not only is propane’s combustion cleaner, its creation also contributes to it having one of the smallest carbon footprints in the fuel industry. It is non-toxic to the environment and emits virtually no messy soot.
For all fuels, they key to safety is in proper use and handling. Propane is non-toxic, lead-free and has extremely low levels of sulphur. Paired with strict regulations applied to the production, storage, transportation, training and handling of the product, propane can be made to be one of the safest fuels on the market.
