NEED A REASON TO CHOOSE PROPANE? WOODFIN HAS SEVERAL…

Propane offers you cost-effective, reliable, versatile warmth. 

PROPANE IS DEPENDABLE

Propane is stored safely in a tank on your property, ready to be used even when the power goes out. That's why so many people rely on propane to power their generators and warm their homes. Reliable propane works when and where other energy sources don't. 

PROPANE IS VERSATILE.

Propane works throughout your home: 
  • your home heating
  • stoves and ovens
  • hot water heaters
  • fireplaces
  • barbecues
  • hot tubs
  • heaters for garages or extra rooms
  • clothes dryers
  • swimming pools
  • "skeeter eaters"

PROPANE IS CLEAN.

Studies by the Environmental Protection Agency show that propane heating systems generate 68 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions than electricity, because most electricity is produced by coal-fired power plants. Propane is an approved alternative fuel listed in both the Clean Air Act of 1990 and the National Energy Policy Act of 1992. Propane is also nontoxic and insoluble in water. 

PROPANE APPLIANCES DON'T NEED CHIMNEYS.

Since propane equipment can be vented through a wall with PVC pipe, they can be installed almost anywhere. 

PROPANE IS SAFE.

A propane tank, operating under normal circumstances will not explode or rupture. The propane industry and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) have developed stringent regulations for propane to make it even safer for your home. (Learn more about Propane Safety.) These include safety devices, mechanisms and regular testing, which are all in place to prevent any potential problems. 

PROPANE IS ECONOMICAL.

Recent analysis has determined that replacing or updating your propane heating equipment will pay for itself almost immediately. 

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, heating a home in the U.S. with propane costs far less than heating with electricity. The average cost to generate 1 Million BTUs of heat with electricity was $34.22, while the cost for the same heat output with propane was only $26.68. In addition, over time, propane water heaters can cost one-third less to operate and recover water twice as quickly as electric water heaters. 

PROPANE FEELS WARMER.

A propane gas furnace heats air to about 130°F to 140°F so the air from your vent feels warm to the touch, compared to heated air from an electric heat pump, which is usually below body temperature (98.6°F). 

PROPANE INVOICES ARE CLEARER.

With propane, what you see is what you get. Propane is measured and billed in familiar "gallons" without the additional 'delivery' or 'transport' charges you might see on utility invoices, or confusing "therms" and "kilowatt hours" as delivery units. 

PROPANE IS AMERICAN-MADE.

Most propane used in the country is produced in the country - creating jobs right here at home.
