6 Reasons To Switch To West Virginia Propane Services
There are plenty of reasons to consider using West Virginia propane rather than natural gas, coal or another energy source. At Thrifty Propane, we’d like to tempt you to switch over to this fuel source, and believe the following reasons might convince you that propane is your best option.
1. Propane Is A Clean Fuel
Unlike wood, coal or even natural gas, propane is not a greenhouse gas and is listed as a green fuel by the United States government. We all know that burning wood and coal can pollute the environment, but many people are surprised to learn that if natural gas leaks, it is more harmful to the environment than the burning of wood and coal. If you are trying hard to live a greener life, propane can be an excellent addition to your eco-friendly repertoire.
2. You Have More Purchase Control
When you purchase natural gas or use coal, you typically must purchase from your local utility company. With propane, you typically can purchase from any West Virginia propane company that serves your area. In some cases, if you lease a tank, you will be required to purchase propane from the company that leases the tank. However, if you buy your tank, then you can purchase from any delivery company. Obviously, we hope you will choose Thrifty Propane as your supplier, and to entice you further, we offer a Price Beat Guarantee. If you find a lower unconditional price in your county, we will beat that price by 10 cents per gallon.
If you would like to purchase a tank, we sell both new and refurbished tanks. Refurbished tanks are an excellent way to save money, and these used tanks include fresh paint and new valves and include the same 10-year warranty we offer on our new tanks. We also have a lease-to-own program for tanks, and we will give you a free tank if you pre-purchase a specific number of gallons of propane.
3. You Can Buy Propane At Any Time
When you use natural gas or another energy source, you simply have to pay the current rate per unit no matter the price. With propane, you can fill your tank or pre-buy propane and purchase it when prices are very low. This is an excellent way to save money, and we send out emails to our customers letting them know that prices might be dropping. Usually, we recommend that you fill a tank in the late summer, as this is when prices often drop due to low demand.
4. Propane Appliances Save Money
Propane is not just for heaters, although a propane furnace actually heats more efficiently and costs about 50% less to operate than electric heaters, wood furnaces and oil furnaces. However, you can use propane for much more than your furnace. Propane can be used to power water heaters, dryers, dishwashers, stoves and ovens, refrigerators and even TV sets, as well as your backyard grill.
5. No Power? No Problem
If the electricity goes out, West Virginia propane customers don’t have to worry about heating their home or using their propane-powered appliances. If you are looking for a more off-the-grid lifestyle, propane can be an excellent option allowing you to power your home even if your neighbors’ electricity is down due to a power outage.
6. It’s Easier Than You Think To Switch
You might be tempted, but worried about the hassle of switching to propane. At Thrifty Propane, we do all the work and there is truly little hassle for a homeowner. Not only do we sell propane, we also install propane tanks. We will come to your house, discuss your energy needs and then scout for the best possible location for your propane tank. We can install both above-ground tanks and underground tanks, and we simply need to find a spot in your yard that provides the propane delivery person with easy access for refills.
