What Business Need Bulk Propane?
Written on: October 9, 2023
Delaware Propane offers customized commercial propane solutions.
Whether you run a restaurant, hotel, manufacturing center, farm, construction site or other commercial enterprise in Delaware, you need to know that you have sufficient energy to keep your business operating.
Running out of propane could mean lost work hours, ruined crops or customers left in the cold. At Delaware Propane, we develop customized bulk propane delivery plans for commercial clients in New Castle, Kent and Sussex counties. Here are some essential functions our commercial customers use bulk propane for.
Permanent and Temporary Heat
Propane generates a significant amount of heat — 91,452 Btu per gallon, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. A propane furnace can reliably heat air to 140 degrees, and propane-powered temporary heating provides dependable and mobile warmth.
Bulk fuel from Delaware Propane will:
- Power commercial-grade furnaces and boilers for schools, hospitals, hotels and other public and private spaces.
- Warm up construction crews during Delaware’s frigid winter months.
- Ensure stable overnight temperatures on building sites and keep cement, paint, join compound and other materials from drying incorrectly.
- Warm outdoor spaces at restaurants and other hospitality businesses by up to 25 degrees with powerful patio heating.
- Heat outbuildings and greenhouses in agricultural settings.
Beyond its heating capacity, propane offers efficient farm-specific power with lower emissions than diesel and gasoline. Propane’s agricultural roles include:
- Clearing weeds without the use of harmful chemicals.
- Quickly and safely drying crops.
- Powering irrigation pumps.
- Fueling commercial mowers.
Propane-powered forklifts offer an excellent balance of power and adaptability.
Unlike diesel and gasoline-powered forklifts, propane forklifts can operate indoors safely because of their low carbon monoxide, sulfur oxide and nitrogen oxide emissions. Unlike electric forklifts, they can also work outdoors in rainy conditions.
Propane forklifts have major advantages over electric counterparts. They lose no lifting or moving capacity as their fuel runs low. One propane cylinder can power an entire shift, and there’s no extended charging time. Just attach a new fuel cylinder and get moving!
Propane Appliances and Amenities
So many First State businesses use propane to power a wide range of products, including:
- Commercial-grade propane water heaters
- Propane clothes dryers
- Fire features like gas logs and fire pits
- Commercial kitchens
These products ensure the comfort and enjoyment of so many Delaware consumers. Their customer experience would not be the same without them.
Standby Generator Power
When the grid goes down in our part of the country — a too-common occurrence these days — many buildings can’t lose power, including hospitals, nursing homes, emergency response centers and schools.
Propane standby generators are the gold standard for power generation in these circumstances. With its unlimited shelf life, propane outpaces diesel and gasoline for dependability. Propane is there when you need to keep lights, heat, and life-saving equipment running during a blackout.
