propane vs electricity

When it comes to the energy source that powers many of your home’s appliances, propane is superior to electricity in many ways! Propane gives your Delaware home comfort, energy efficiency, environmental friendliness and more!

We’ll show you all the ways that propane is a better choice than electricity. With reliable propane delivery from Delaware Propane, you can enjoy all of this!

Energy efficiency

Propane generates far more Btu’s (British thermal units, a measure of heat) per dollar than electricity. You’ll spend less money on energy but won’t lose any warmth or comfort.

Environmental friendliness

It may appear that electricity is “cleaner” than propane. However, this isn’t the case. Coal-fired power plants account for around half of all electricity generated in the United States. When compared with propane, which is so clean burning it produces almost zero greenhouse-gas emissions, electricity is the one looking not very clean.

Comfort without compromise

Propane is ideal for you if you enjoy lengthy hot showers. Propane water heaters heat more water at 30% less cost than electric ones and take less time to do so. Choose a propane tankless water heater and you get all the hot water you need, on demand! Propane also makes laundry a breeze. Propane clothes dryers get your laundry dry 25% faster than equivalent electric dryers. They do it with less static cling and fewer wrinkles and put less wear on the clothes.

Versatility and convenience

When it comes to all that propane can accomplish in your house, we’re just getting started! Propane ranges give more precise and immediate temperature control than any electric range. That precision makes it easier to enjoy outstanding results from your cooking.

Propane fireplaces give you a warm, cozy fire with the push of a button and without the need for firewood or cleaning up ashes.

In your backyard, propane does a lot better than electricity in every way. It can heat your pool and spa dramatically faster than electric models, giving you more time to enjoy yourself—with lower energy costs! When the electricity goes out, propane saves the day by powering a whole-house backup generator to keep your home safe and comfortable.

Propane can do that: for homeowners
