GO GREEN WITH CASEY PROPANE
Not only does it power your home comfortably, affordably and safely, it also helps protect the environment. Approved as an alternative fuel by the Clean Air Act of 1990, propane is one of the cleanest burning of all fossil fuels. It’s even cleaner than electricity, which, 50% of the time, is generated by coal-burning power plants. Propane is also non-toxic, so it is not harmful to soil or water.
And, because propane appliances are typically more energy efficient than electric appliances, you use less of the earth’s natural energy resources, while also cutting your costs. Going green means protecting the environment… and saving money too!
- Cleaner than Electric. Propane furnaces, space heaters and water heaters produce about 50% less complete fuel cycle greenhouse gas emissions than electric appliances produce.*
- Propane Space Heater. Produces fewer air pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions than oil-burning space heaters. 99.9% efficiency saves you money.
- Propane Clothes Dryer. Much more efficient than electric dryers. Uses less energy resources; costs less to operate.
- Propane Water Heater. Gives you more hot water at a more affordable price. Rinnai propane tankless water heaters can reduce costs by up to 50% a year and last up to 20 years.
- Propane Fireplace. Unlike wood-burning fireplaces, propane fireplaces are clean and do not emit noxious fumes or black smoke into the air.
- Propane Grill. Better for the environment than charcoal, which releases 105 times more carbon monoxide than propane.
- Propane Furnace. More efficient operation can help lower your energy bills.
- Underground Tank Storage. Tanks can be stored underground safely and easily.

Propane, also known as liquefied petroleum gas (LP-gas), is one of the nation's most versatile sources of energy. This safe fuel serves approximately 60 million people in the United States in millions of homes, industry, farming and more.
- More than 14 million families use propane to fuel their furnaces, water heaters, air conditioners, outdoor grills, fire places, dryers and range tops.
- Many choose this clean-burning fuel for bus, taxi, delivery and other fleets to minimize air pollution in metropolitan areas.
- Propane has always been a green fuel, far ahead of today’s trend.
- Propane is used on more than 660,000 farms for irrigation pumps, grain dryers, standby generators and other farm equipment. It is an essential fuel for crop drying, flame cultivation, fruit ripening, space and water heating and food refrigeration.
- Propane is easy to transport and used in areas beyond natural gas mains.
- Because it is 270 times more compact as a liquid than as a gas, it is economical to store and transport as a liquid.
PROPANE THE SAFE FUEL
- Less FlammablePropane has a narrow range of flammability when compared with other petroleum products. In order to ignite, the propane/air mix must contain from 2.2 to 9.6 percent propane vapor. If the mixture contains less than 2.2 percent gas, it is too lean to burn. If it contains more than 9.6 percent, it is too rich to burn. Propane won't ignite when combined with air unless the source of ignition reaches at least 940 degrees Fahrenheit. In contrast, gasoline will ignite when the source of ignition reaches only 430 to 500 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Naturally SaferIf liquid propane leaks, it doesn't puddle; instead vaporizing and dissipating quickly into the air. Since propane is released from a pressured container as a vapor, it can't be ingested like gasoline or alcohol fuel. Because propane is virtually odorless and colorless in its natural state, a commercial odorant is added so propane can be detected if it leaks from its container.
