Choose a Winner for Your Home

why propane north carolinaIf you want your western North Carolina home to be energy efficient, then make propane your fuel of choice. Propane is exceptionally versatile, so there’s a lot it can do in and around your home. It can provide heat in the winter. It can heat your home’s water, dry your clothes, and cook your meals (indoors and outdoors). Propane can upgrade your outdoor space by powering pool heaters, space heaters, grills, fire pits, and lighting. And since it’s safe and portable, you can take it camping, tailgating, and more. There’s so much it can do!

On top of all that, propane is efficient and eco-friendly. That makes propane good for the environment and your budget. Propane is a green fuel that saves you green as well.

When compared to electricity, propane comes out on top in a number of ways. Let’s explore some of the ways propane is a better choice than electricity.

The Numbers

Electricity is no match for propane when it comes to the number of BTUs generated. An equivalent amount of propane produces more BTUs than electricity. It takes less propane versus electricity to generate the same amount of heat energy. When you need less to get the job done, you use less. And the less you use, the lower your bills are and the fewer carbon emissions you create by using propane in your home. With the price of almost everything reaching all-time highs, using an efficient and cost-saving fuel like propane is a real win-win.

Propane also surpasses electricity in terms of efficiency. Propane appliances are significantly more efficient than their electric counterparts. For example, a propane clothes dryer can save you time, money, and energy by drying your clothes 25% faster than an electric dryer would. An added benefit of propane clothes dryers is that they’re gentler on your fabrics and cause less static cling. They also lead to fewer wrinkles, so you can save even more time and energy by not having to iron as much!

To summarize, propane appliances save you time and money. They’re also environmentally friendly. James Oxygen & Supply sells, installs, and maintains a variety of propane appliances—from water heaters to grills to space heaters for inside and outside your home.

Hot, Hot, Hot

The cold days of winter may feel far, far away right now, but when it’s time to switch from tees and tanks to sweaters and jackets, you’ll be happy to know that your propane furnace is capable of creating all the heat you’ll need to be warm and comfortable in your western North Carolina home. Propane furnaces are extremely efficient heating systems. They outperform electric heating systems. Electric heat pumps simply don’t work as well when the outside temperatures approach freezing.

Even on a hot summer day, you want warm water for bathing, washing dishes, and the like. Propane water heaters outperform electric water heaters. In fact, a propane water heater can produce twice as much hot water as an electric water heater in the same amount of time. Additionally, the operating costs for a propane water heater is roughly 30% less than that of an electric water heater. And if you have a tankless propane water heater, you’ll save even more money. Plus, you’ll have a limitless supply of hot water on demand. That’s especially great for large households. No one will have to wait for the water to warm up to take a bath or shower.

A Clear Winner

Propane has a lot going for it. With propane versus electricity, you’ll be able to more efficiently heat your home and your water. But there’s another reason propane is a clear winner compared to electricity: Indoors or out, you can keep cooking with propane. Power outages, especially after major storms, are becoming more and more common. If there’s a power outage, you can still cook your food with propane. Additionally, propane cooking ranges cost much less to operate than their electric counterparts.

When you compare all the things propane can do more efficiently and cost-effectively than electricity, the winner is clear. Propane.

Save on a Rinnai Water Heater

water heater service north carolinaSummer is a great season for tank tops. It’s also a great a great time to go tankless—with your water heater that is.

If the water heater in your North Carolina home is getting up there in age, then it may be time to replace it. You’ll save money on your energy bills with a newer more efficient water heater.

Residential Rebates

Now is also a great time to buy a new tankless water heater because you could save up to $150! The North Carolina Propane Gas Association is offering rebates on qualifying propane appliances like tankless water heaters. And the pros at James Oxygen & Supply can help you take advantage of all the rebates and incentives you qualify for.

For example, Rinnai is currently offering a special promotion. You could save up to $100 when you buy one of their tankless water heaters.

Why Go Tankless?

Conventional tank water heaters have their limits. They can only produce a limited amount of hot water at any given time—whatever is in the tank. Any time the hot water in the tank gets depleted, you’re left waiting for the water heater to heat more.

Anyone with a large family knows what it’s like to either take a cold shower or wait for the water to heat up if they’re last in line to bathe. But if you replace your water heater with a propane tankless water heater, you’ll never run out of hot water and have to wait to shower again.

A tankless water heater will save you money in the long run because they’re more efficient than conventional water heaters. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, tankless water heaters are between 14% and 34% more energy-efficient than tank water heaters. That’s largely because a tank water heater may end up heating the same water several times over when the water in the tank cools past a certain point and has to be heated again so there’s always a reserve of hot water. That adds up to wasted energy and higher than necessary bills.

When you have a tankless water heater, your water is only heated when it’s going to be used. You’ll see the savings on your energy bills.

Enroll Today!

payment options north carolinaCurrent world events have caused a tremendous amount of anxiety regarding fuel costs. At James Oxygen & Supply, we know only too well that this is causing hardship and concern for many of our customers. We hope you can take some comfort in knowing that propane price increases tend to be less dramatics than those of heating oil, gasoline and other fuels derived from crude oil.

To help our customers manage their budgets, we developed the Level Pay plan. By enrolling in this plan, your estimated yearly propane costs are evenly divided so that you pay the same amount each month for ten months. That way, you won’t get hit with massive bills during high usage months. Instead, you’ll know exactly how much your bill will be each month because it will be the same every month.

Enrollment in this plan costs you absolutely nothing. And our payment program is flexible. You can jump in at any time.

Payment Plan Advantages

  1. You won’t use more fuel than you normally would.
  2. Your fuel bills will be more predictable and manageable.
  3. Even if you need more than one delivery during a high usage month, your monthly payment won’t change.
  4. This plan is available to our automatic delivery customers.
  5. You can choose to renew or cancel your enrollment after each year.

Calculating Your Monthly Payments

To calculate your monthly payment amount, we start by estimating your total costs for the year. Then we divide that amount into 10 easy, monthly payments. If your actual bills end up being a little higher or lower than we estimated, we will make the necessary adjustments.

AutoPay

Another way James Oxygen & Supply makes payments easier for our customers is offering the AutoPay plan. Once you enroll, your payments will be charged to your credit card automatically each month. That way you never have to worry about a late payment again.

If AutoPay isn’t for you, that’s okay. You can pay your bills online yourself. Sign up for e-statements and save some paper by having your bills emailed to you.

There’s no right season to upgrade. Do it now.

water heater installationIf the water heater in your North Carolina home is on the older side, now is a good time to replace it. In fact, there’s no wrong time unless you wait too long and your water heater dies completely. If you have a larger family, you’ve probably had the uncomfortable experience of having to wait for hot water to take your shower because you’re last in line. You can put the days of running out of and having to wait for hot water in the past. How? Replace your current water heater with a propane tankless water heater. James Oxygen & Supply will take care of the installation, and you’ll enjoy unlimited hot water after that.

Going tankless

There’s a reason a conventional tank water heater has its limits. The only hot water available to your home is the hot water in the tank. Every time the hot water in the tank is depleted, you have to wait for the water heater to heat more. That’s very inconvenient, especially if there are a lot of people and/or appliances in your household that need hot water around the same time.

If you purchase a tankless water heater from James Oxygen & Supply, you eliminate the wait. You’ll have an endless supply of hot water on demand no matter how many hot showers your family takes.

Not sure which water heater is right for you and your family’s needs? Don’t worry. The experts at James Oxygen & Supply will help you make the right choice.

A tankless water heater is also more efficient than a conventional water heater. That’s because a tank water heater often has to heat the same water multiple times so that there’s always hot water in the tank. That’s energy wasted if you don’t use the hot water then and there. In the case of a tankless water heater, the water is only heated when it’s going to be used. So no energy is wasted heating water that will eventually cool and need to be heated again. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, tankless water heaters are between 14% and 34% more energy-efficient than tank water heaters. That’s good for the environment and your energy bills.

James Oxygen & Supply

James Oxygen & Supply is family-owned and focused on service. We’re also more than just oxygen.
