Propane is one of the most versatile fuels available, so it really makes sense to explore the many ways that it can make your life easier and more comfortable in your Connecticut home.

How would you like to start your morning with a long, hot shower, regardless of what else is happening in your household? Propane is a quick, efficient and affordable way to heat as much water as you need, whether it’s for your shower, dishwasher, washing machine or spa tub.

And why not trade in your old electric stove for a new gas range? Gas ovens give you much better temperature control and heat distribution than electric stoves.

A perfect illustration of propane’s versatility can be seen with fireplaces. Propane fireplaces can be installed inside and outside your home and they are more efficient and better for the environment than wood burning units. Many propane fireplaces can also deliver supplemental heat—they produce twice as much heat as wood-burning fireplaces at about a third of the cost. And there’s no soot, ash or smoke to worry about.

Feeling a chill?

If you can’t get your home warm enough with your current heating system (or you’re spending too much on heat), there are a number of propane solutions for greater comfort and savings, including high-efficiency propane furnaces and hybrid (dual fuel) heating systems.

People feel more comfortable with whole-house propane generators too! These are a better and safer option than noisy, smelly gasoline-powered portable generators. Portable gasoline generators provide power for just a few electrical circuits and emit dangerous carbon monoxide fumes. In contrast, quiet whole house propane generators can supply power safely for every circuit in the home, including your heating system.

The possibilities are many—and if you already have a reliable, built-in supply of propane on your property, why not?
