Heating, hot water, efficient gas appliances — propane can do it!
When homeowners in Berkeley, Morgan, Jefferson and Washington counties come to us to discuss propane appliances, they want to know if propane is a sensible home energy source. At Roach Energy, we are proud to be the most trusted propane delivery company in the region. Our experts can help you explore all the ways this fuel can enhance your way of life.
Here are seven of the most significant advantages propane has over other fuels.
1. Dependable, robust heating
When the mercury drops in the Eastern Panhandle, households that are heated with propane can rest easy. Propane furnaces have fuel efficiency ratings as high as 98 percent. You’ll get maximum heating efficiency for your fuel. And these furnaces consistently generate heated air of 140 to 170 degrees, regardless of the icy conditions outside.
2. Superior hot water generation
Looking for a reliable steamy shower? Tired of twiddling your thumbs while waiting for the hot water tap to warm up? Propane has you covered. Traditional propane water heaters generally have around double the recovery rate (how much hot water an appliance can generate in one hour) of electric units.
Tankless water heaters can produce virtually limitless hot water whenever you need it.
3. A range of home essentials
The same propane tank that fuels your home heating and water heater can power many other necessities. Propane clothes dryers can dry laundry 25 percent faster than electric models. They also leave fewer wrinkles.
Additionally, homeowners enjoy cooking with professional-quality propane ranges and ovens. They offer precise temperature control and cooking versatility.
4. Stunning home amenities
You can elevate your quality of life and boost your home’s curb appeal with luxurious propane products. These include:
fireplace inserts and gas logs
propane firepits and outdoor fireplaces
grills and outdoor kitchens
5. Eco-friendly power
Many people are astonished to learn how green propane is. It has a lower carbon intensity than most other energy sources — far lower than grid electricity. It contains no methane, a potent greenhouse gas, and virtually no particulate matter, a known carcinogen.
6. Accessibility and affordability
We like to say that propane is energy for everyone. It’s an abundant fuel that is almost entirely U.S.-made. As a result, its price is less vulnerable to the ups and downs of global energy markets. You can be confident that the propane you receive from Roach Energy is reasonably priced and won’t be interrupted by global disruptions.
7. Dependable energy independence
When your home relies completely on electricity or natural gas, you’re at the mercy of utilities with often-shoddy infrastructure. If the grid fails or there is a broken gas main in the neighborhood, you’ll be left without much of your home comfort equipment. Propane-powered households have genuine energy independence. And propane backup generators ensure continued electricity even when the grid goes down.
