Benefits of Propane
Propane offers everything today’s home or business owners want and need. Propane burns cleanly and efficiently while still costing less than electricity, not to mention it is the most reliable home and business heating fuel in existence. It’s available when and where you need it with steady supplies that far outreach today’s natural gas mains or electrical power grids. Even when the power is out, propane keeps doing its job of keeping you comfortable.
- Environmental Friendliness. Propane is an approved alternative clean fuel listed in the 1990 Clean Air Act, as well as the National Energy Policy Act of 1992. Because Propane is one of the lightest, simplest hydrocarbons in existence, it is also one of the cleanest and environmentally friendly fuels. There are also no left over spills, pools, or residue because it is non-toxic to soil or water and is released and burned as a vapor.
- Versatility. Propane can be used for a wide range of residential applications including central heating, cooking, drying clothes, and heating water for your home, pool, or spa. Propane fireplaces and hearth products offer great space heat solutions and are among the most popular and desired appliances sold today. Propane storage tanks can be either above or below ground, giving homeowners’ flexibility for placement and installation. From drying the clothes you wear to fueling your automobile or lawn tractor, propane can be used to make your life easier and more comfortable.
- Produced in America. Over 90 percent of all propane used in the United States is produced in the United States! Because our propane is produced here in America, you can count on reliable supplies of fuel that are more resistant to the volatile price fluctuations of other home heating fuels such as oil. Shawley’s maintains a constant supply of over 500,000 gallons of propane with over an additional one million gallons in reserve. This means that no matter the environment, weather, or situation, Shawley’s has you covered!
- Efficiency. Propane costs less and works harder than most other fuels. Propane appliances have shorter energy savings payback periods and burn hotter and more evenly than other fuels on the market today. High Efficiency propane products such as fireplaces, furnaces, water heaters, and more are capable of up to 95-99% efficient operation, meaning less waste and more money in your pocket!
