What is propane?
Propane is a gas that is compressed and stored as a liquid. It is primarily a byproduct of natural gas processing, those some is produced from crude oil refinement. It is nontoxic, colorless and virtually odorless (though an odor is added for safety purposes so it can be detected).
Who uses propane?
Propane is used by homeowners, businesses and organizations to power everything from home heating and appliances to vehicles and agricultural equipment. Appliances such as kitchen stoves, dryers and furnaces, which come ready to use with natural gas, can be easily converted to be used with propane. Hot water heaters, room heaters and fireplaces must be purchased for use with propane.
Is propane the same as natural gas?
It is similar, but not the same. Propane is stored outside your house in our tank. It is dispensed as a liquid and stored as a liquid. When it leaves the tank, it vaporizes and turns into a gas. It enters your house as a gas and burns as a gas.
Is propane safe for the environment?
Propane is an approved clean fuel, listed in the 1990 Clean Air Act. In fact, propane produced 43% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than electricity.
How can I tell if my tank is low?
The tank will have a gauge which will tell you approximately the percent of gas still left in the tank.
