Why Propane Is Better Than Electricity In Cold Winter Weather
With winter fast approaching here in southeastern Wisconsin, many of us are turning on (and up) the heat in our homes.
If you’re looking for ways you can save on energy costs, there are all sorts of tips online. One of the best ways is simple: add propane to your home for efficient, comfortable home heating and more!

Propane’s Advantages Over Electricity
Here are some key reasons that propane is superior to electricity when it comes to heating your home:
- Propane burns hotter and is more efficient than electricity. That means you need less of it for heating your home, which can save you money on energy bills.
- With propane, you are not dependent on the electrical power grid to keep your home warm. If the electricity goes out —whether it’s caused by a snowstorm, an ice storm, an accident knocking down power poles, or a failure in the electrical grid —your home won’t be heated. Since propane is stored right next to your home in your propane tank, your home’s heating system will have its fuel.
But that’s only the beginning of how propane is a more efficient and cost-effective energy source than electricity!
- A propane water heater gives you twice as much hot water in an hour as an electric water heater. That leads to less energy usage and reduced energy bills.
- A propane clothes dryer not only gets your laundry dry 25% faster than an electric dryer, but it also produces fewer wrinkles. So, you’ll also save on energy costs because you won’t be ironing as much!
Since propane burns so cleanly, propane appliances not only perform better than their electric counterparts, they need less maintenance and fewer repairs, and also last longer, saving you even more money!
