Propane vs Electric Appliances

The Winner Is Clear

gas appliances north carolina After the holidays, lots of budgets need a bit of resuscitating. And this year many of the costs associated with the holidays and the winter months are higher than they have been previously. That makes any opportunity to economize a big win. When you use propane, you get a lot of benefits for your western North Carolina home that electricity can’t match. Propane is versatile, eco-friendly, readily available, safe, and efficient. However, one of the biggest benefits propane offers is how much more efficiently and effectively propane appliances run than the electric counterparts.

Using Propane Appliances Is Eco-Friendly

Propane is one of the cleanest-burning fossil fuels. Using propane appliances in your home instead of electric appliances can reduce your carbon emissions significantly. A home that uses propane rather than electricity for heating will produce up to one 1/3 fewer carbon emissions. A home that uses propane for heating, water heating, cooking, clothes drying, and space heating will produce up to 1/2 the carbon emissions of an all-electric house.

There are a lot of advocates for electricity, and it does have its uses. But electricity isn’t as clean and green as some would like you to think. Most of the electricity in America is still generated by coal-burning power plants. In fact, coal-burning power plants are the second-largest source of electricity in the US. Those power plants have an adverse effect on the environment.

Additionally, if there’s a leak (which is rare), propane doesn’t harm the environment. It doesn’t contaminate or damage the air, soil, water, plants, or water-based organisms. It simply dissipates.

Using Propane Appliances Is Efficient

You get more for your money with propane appliances versus electric ones because propane appliances operate more efficiently. Modern propane heating systems are capable of up to 98% efficiency. A propane water heater gets the job done in less time than it takes an electric water heater. The same is true of a propane clothes dryer. (They also leave you with less static and fewer wrinkles.) Using propane appliances versus electric ones will keep your energy costs lower. That’s a relief to any budget.
