Propane can be used for more than grilling
When it comes to grilling there are two popular ways to do it, propane or charcoal. If you've ever watched King of the Hill, Hank swears by propane as the way to go for grilling. Propane isn't just for grilling, it can be used for whole home comfort.
Most of the top heating equipment companies offer boilers or furnaces heated by propane in a similar way to Oil. Propane at the home requires a tank, just like a gas grill, but tanks for home heat are much larger. The tanks can be vertical or horizontal and come in sizes that vary from 100 gallons to over 250. Propane set ups can feature multiple tanks and tank above or below ground. Below ground set ups are more common in new home constructions but can be added to older homes, keep in mind that your yard will be dug up as a result.
Once the tanks are set, what can be fueled with propane other than a grill? Your boiler/furnace, dryer, pool heater, generator, water heater, oven/stove, outdoor cooking appliances, and fireplace inserts can all be fueled with propane. Propane is a more efficiently burning fuel than Natural Gas but not as efficient as Oil, where you need 97,000 BTU's of propane per gallon compared to 140,000 BTU's for oil.
Propane like Oil is supplied by local dealers, instead of large energy utility companies for Natural Gas. This helps improve and support the local community through jobs and community events. Think of propane when you look into a new energy source for your home.
