At Home Uses for Propane

Propane Gas Grill

Northwest Propane of North Texas realizes some people are unaware of the advantages to using residential propane products.  With the crazy weather in Texas, sometimes it’s difficult to hold out for the perfect weather conditions for swimming. If it’s a chillier day out, and you want to go swimming, a cheap efficient fix would be to use propane to heat the pool. It is also a great idea for summer night pool parties to heat your hot tub with propane. It is simple and more cost-efficient than paying high electrical bills.

Also, consider using it for your summer barbeques. It is a quicker and more efficient way to hang out by the pool side and serve hot dogs and burgers to your guests while enjoying sunny North Texas afternoons. However, it’s not only for outdoor cooking. Indoor cooking with propane is actually a great way to save time and money. Sometimes it can be a long wait for a normal oven to heat up. A propane oven is instant and actually cooks the food more evenly allowing for a better tasting meal. It is also safer for a house with children because the propane burners cool off rather quickly.

Another frustrating occurrence around this time of year is the many severe thunderstorms that rip through the Dallas-Fort Worth area. More often than not power outages are cause by lightning strikes, high winds, or cars hitting electrical poles in the treacherous road conditions. It is scary when the fridge and freezer stay out for extended periods causing sometimes expensive food to go bad. It is also difficult to complete simple tasks, especially those requiring a computer or light. In these situations it is good to have some sort of back up propane generator. We deliver in any weather when you need propane, usually within 24 hours. We at Northwest Propane  provide the quickest and most customer friendly experience in the area for all your  propane  needs.

Propane Grills vs. Charcoal Grills

Propane Grills vs. Charcoal GrillsIf you’re a fan of the TV cartoon King of the Hill, you know it’s a running joke that Hank Hill, who sells propane and propane accessories for a living, absolutely despises the use of charcoal grills. One of Hill’s favorite’s sayings is “Taste the meat, not the heat.”

As we all prepare for the spring and firing up our barbecue pits, our Dallas TX propane gas experts at Northwest Propane are hoping you are choosing propane grills over charcoal grills. From an operational standpoint, both have their advantages, but when it comes to cleanliness, propane’s odorless, colorless gas is a favorite compared to charcoal briquettes and ash that can be extremely messy and more difficult to clean after cooking.

From a taste perspective, charcoal tends to add a distinct smoky flavor, whereas propane offers more of a natural taste. Propane grills, in addition, are faster cookers, which gives them an edge in the convenience category.

Hank Hill doesn’t work for us, but we definitely endorse propane grills over charcoal grills as he would. Let our Dallas TX propane gas experts assist you with more comparisons and contrasts between propane grills and charcoal grills. For additional information, call our Dallas propane dealers today, or visit us online.

Benefits of Propane Water Heaters

Propane Water HeaterIt’s been said that nearly a quarter of a homeowner’s energy costs in a month goes toward heating water in your home. How you heat your water has become very important, and our Dallas TX propane gas representatives are here to assist you with choosing your next water heater.

Propane water heaters are becoming more and more common among homeowners for a variety of reasons. These heaters are cost-efficient and very easy to install, and they have an endless supply, which cuts back on delivery of fuel. In comparison to electric water heaters, which heat water by electrifying it with submerged coils, propane heaters are designed with a burner at the tank’s bottom, basically heating water by igniting a flame with a pilot light.

While installation costs are expected to be higher with propane heaters, utility bills are expected to be cheaper in the course of a year. Electric heaters take longer to heat water, which results in higher bills on a monthly basis.

There are several benefits to owning propane water heaters, and our professionals are more than willing to provide all the information you are looking for. Give our Dallas propane gas company a call today, or visit us online for details.

Propane Tips for New Grill Owners

Propane GrillAs we inch closer and closer to the holidays, some of you are receiving holiday gifts that are putting huge smiles on your faces. With the price of barbecue grills going down, there are a few of you out there preparing to use a brand new propane gas grill.

You would think that some things are pretty elementary, but if you’re a first-time propane grill owner, you may want to remember some these five safety tips. This isn’t an attempt to insult your intelligence; consider it a refresher course of some of the things you may already dub as “common sense.”

  • Keep all propane tanks outdoors. Make sure that they are upright and away from flammable objects.
  • Do not smoke around a tank. If you don’t smoke, never use a lighter or a match around a tank.
  • Check your grill for leaks or anything that looks suspect before lighting it.
  • If transporting tanks from Point A to Point B, do not leave a tank inside a car or truck.
  • Have your tank filled by professionals. Do not fill the tank yourself.

Our Dallas TX propane gas company experts will be more than happy to assist you with any additional questions. Feel free to call us, or contact us online for more information.

Selecting Propane: Choose Wisely

Propane TanksWhen it comes to propane, selecting a company can be a hassle for new users. While some may think this is a simple task, it deserves a lot of thought and a lot of research.

One sure way to have your questions answered is to contact your local Better Business Bureau. The BBB provides tons of information about reputable companies, and propane gas companies are no exception. The BBB will offer credible knowledge about a company’s reputation with consumers, as well as other interesting pieces of information you may need.

If you would rather make the decision on your own, feel free to visit Internet directories or search engines. Do your research accordingly. Check for safety records and specific memberships the companies belong to. It’s always a positive to see a company involved with several associations (the National Propane Gas Association, for example), as these memberships give credibility to a company’s resume and level of compliance.

Lastly, never settle on your first choices. Shop around with several companies. Treat your future propane gas distributors as if you are shopping for a new car. Propane and its many uses will serve just as important as a well-oiled automobile. Good luck in searching.

We want you to do your research, but we hope you choose our Dallas TX propane gas company for all of your needs. Feel free to call us today, or contact us online for more information.
