The Benefits of Propane

Central Texas families use propane for heat, hot water and a range of lifestyle-enhancing products

Propane is highly efficient and incredibly versatile. In modern gas-fired equipment, it burns with well over 90% efficiency. Predominately made in the United States (with a huge amount coming from Texas), propane is more insulated from global energy markets than other fuels, making its price much more stable.

In Waco, Burnet, Gatesville, Lampasas, College Station, Taylor, Leander and other Central Texas communities, households and businesses are turning to propane to power world-class home comfort systems, appliances and amenities, including the following:

Propane does what electricity can’t

Every day, Central Texas customers talk to our team about the best way to power their home appliances. When comparing propane with electricity , propane invariably wins the day. Propane furnaces, water heaters and clothes dryers are remarkably more efficient than their electric counterparts. Gas ranges, hearth products and firepits are appealing features that can boost your home’s value.

And with propane, your home isn’t as vulnerable to all-too-common power grid outages, especially if you have a propane-powered generator.

Propane is green

Are you looking for an environmentally friendly home fuel ? Propane has you covered. It has a much lower carbon intensity (CI) than Texas grid electricity and other energy sources. It’s also methane free and contains virtually no particulate matter, a carcinogen.

The propane industry is making its product cleaner every year. Renewable propane — while not in wide use yet — is growing in production. It is chemically identical to conventional propane but has 25% of the CI (and about 15% of the CI of Texas grid electricity). Renewable propane comes from recycled and organic feedstocks, most of which are considered waste products.
