Discover all the advantages of propane!

propane supplier wisconsinPropane and natural gas are both gases and are used in many similar ways such as home heating, water heating, and cooking.

But they are not the same. Propane is different than, and in many ways superior to, natural gas. Here are some of those ways.


One of the reasons why so many consumers like using propane for home heating and water heating is that they are confident in having propane when they need it.

That’s because your propane supply is stored in a propane tank on your property, so you’ll always have it on hand. With a dependable propane delivery service from Boehlke Bottled Gas, you have peace of mind about your propane supply.

Natural gas customers don’t enjoy security like that. Any time of year, there are reports of interruptions in natural gas service because of pipeline problems, caused by either cold weather, accidents, or deterioration.

Hundreds and even thousands of consumers may be without natural gas service if underground natural gas pipes are damaged. You might be unable to heat your home for hours or even days because of this. Do you really want to take that chance in the middle of a Wisconsin winter?

Accessibility and flexibility

If you want natural gas in your house, you need to live in a neighborhood served by a natural gas utility. However, wherever you reside, propane allows you to enjoy all of the benefits of gas-fired heating, water heating, ranges, and other appliances!

Natural gas is distributed through a large utility company, not a local delivery service like Boehlke Bottled Gas. With us, you can customize your service with features like automatic delivery, FREE wireless propane tank monitoring, Budget Pay, Pre-Buy, Autopay, and more! And you get prompt, courteous service. Try getting that with a big utility!

Environmental friendliness

Natural gas contains methane, which is a greenhouse gas. Methane leaks from underground natural gas pipelines have raised concerns.

Propane, on the other hand, is not a greenhouse gas. It has been classified as an approved clean fuel by both the 1990 Clean Air Act and the 1992 National Energy Policy because of its low carbon content.

Using propane helps America’s energy independence because all of our domestic propane supply is produced here in North America.
