In many parts of the country, natural gas is the leading choice for home fuel for things like heating, water heating, and cooking.
Here in southeastern Wisconsin, you have a choice. And once you read on, you’ll see why the right choice for your home is propane!
Natural gas? Not so much.
There are many consumer surveys that show people prefer using propane gas for home heating and water heating because they know they will always have propane when they need it.
That’s because your propane supply is stored in a tank on your property. It’s right there, whenever you need it. Natural gas customers don’t enjoy security like that. Interruptions in natural gas service because of pipeline problems, caused by cold weather, accidents, or deterioration, happen any time of year.
When underground natural gas pipelines are damaged, hundreds and even thousands of customers may lose their supply until repairs are finished. You could be hours, or even days, without the gas you need to heat your home. That is not only uncomfortable in a cold snap, but dangerous.
There are a lot of great things about gas ranges, water heaters, home heating systems, and other gas-fired appliances.
But the only way you’re going to have those with natural gas is if you live in a neighborhood with natural gas lines.
That’s not a problem with propane! You’re not dependent on access to a utility. Your propane supply comes from your tank right on your property.
Boehlke Bottled Gas is a local, family-owned business that understands the needs of its customers.
When you have natural gas, you’re dealing with a utility. Your options are limited.

The main component of natural gas is methane, which is a greenhouse gas. Concerns have been raised about methane leaks from underground natural gas pipelines.
But propane is not a greenhouse gas. In fact, because of its low carbon content, it has been named as an approved clean fuel in both the 1990 Clean Air Act and the 1992 National Energy Policy.
