Heating with Propane

Propane gas or LP (Liquid Propane) has been on the increase in the last ten years as an alternate source of home heating fuel. Natural gas and propane gas should not be confused with each other. Natural gas is a product of the environment and propane gas is a by-product of crude oil. Propane gas gives you warmth where you want it.

Propane Gas room heaters come in a wide range of sizes and styles for those areas of your home where you want warmth on demand or need extra heat. They are available in vented and non vented models to increase their flexibility. Some heaters look and operate like wood fireplaces or stoves but much more efficient and cost about a third to operate. These units add warmth and aesthetic value to your home. The versatility of room or space heaters is what makes them such popular, practical appliances.

These heaters can also serve as essential back-ups during emergencies, supplement a central heating system or provide heat for such areas as garages and workshops. You may call our service department for assistance in the purchase and installation of propane heaters.

Cooking with Propane

Cooking With Gas Gives You Greater Control 97 percent of all professional chefs prefer cooking with gas over electricity. Propane gas ranges or stoves offer faster, more precise temperature control than electric units. This allows adjusting from a boil to simmer in seconds. The benefits of cooking with gas are even more noticeable when the energy bill arrives.

No matter how large or small your loads of laundry are propane gas clothes dryers can put a new spin on an old chore while also helping you save time, energy and money.

Important Safety reminders about Propane

• Don’t enter an area where you suspect a gas leak. If you are in such an area, leave immediately!

• Be alert for propane odor when working in areas where propane is used. Even a faint odor may indicate a hazardous situation.

• Do not try to judge for yourself the level of danger of a gas leak by trying to determine if one smell of gas is weak or strong. All gas leaks pose a serious risk.

• Repeated pilot outages could indicate a hazardous condition. Don’t attempt to re-light the pilot, or service your equipment. Call our service department. 845-336-6596
