Pennsylvania Propane: Why Propane Is A Top Energy Source
Many residents of the Keystone State have found that using propane can be an excellent option to traditional energy sources. If you live in Pennsylvania, you probably have found that many residents’ yards feature a large propane tank. A Pennsylvania propane delivery service can make it easier for people throughout the state to enjoy this fuel, which has many benefits.
Some people believe that propane is only an option for those living in a rural area. While rural residents do take advantage of the convenience of propane, more than 12 million households in the U.S. use propane and many live in or near large cities. One reason is that propane is not only safer for the environment than many other fuels, it also is safer than coal or even natural gas. Coal is one of the biggest sources of pollution in the United States, and natural gas leaks not only are dangerous and potentially explosive, they also release toxins into the environment. Propane is not a greenhouse gas and is considered safer than either of these two fuels.
Some also believe that propane is more expensive than coal or natural gas, but this also is not the case. Coal can sometimes be comparable in cost, but its’ severe damage to the environment makes it a poor source of energy in general. Natural gas burns less efficiently than propane, so for every dollar you spend on propane, you actually get more energy. This is because it takes less propane to create a similar amount of natural gas heat. Wood burning is another source of heat in some homes, but this is expensive and produces a great deal of ash. A wood-burning fireplace also is not as efficient at creating heat as a propane fireplace.
During certain times of year, of course, propane can be quite expensive. However, at Thrifty Propane, we encourage our Pennsylvania propane customers to buy their propane when the prices are low. Our pre-buy specials allow customers to fill their propane tanks for much less when the cost is cheap, such as in August or perhaps July, when the demand is lower.
To get started, you will need to contact the team at Thrifty Propane and discuss what type of tank you need. There are many different sizes of tanks, such as large 1,000-gallon propane tanks and 500-gallon propane tanks, as well as smaller 250-gallon propane tanks and 100-gallon propane tanks. The size you need depends on your typical yearly energy use, as well as the size and configuration of your yard. We lease tanks, sell tanks and offer a lease-to-own program for propane tanks.
At Thrifty Propane, we offer Pennsylvania propane delivery throughout the state, including for those who need Philadelphia propane, Pittsburgh propane or propane in smaller cities, towns and rural areas throughout the state.
