Why Go With Propane Water Heaters?

Dallas TX propane companyOf all the choices a homeowner faces, the selection of a water heater proves to be one the largest. After all, your water heater is responsible for much of your home’s monthly energy costs, so it is essential you choose a cost-effective, yet equally efficient model. With the choice of an electric or propane water heater, there are many positives when going with propane. Our Dallas TX propane professionals at Northwest Propane can help you with this crucial choice, proving why propane is the increasingly popular option.

When choosing between propane water heaters and their electric counterparts, there are many things to keep in mind. In today’s economy, one must factor in cost when considering purchasing any new appliance for the home. Yet, it is important to consider not only the installation cost, but the cost of continuous usage as well. Propane water heaters make for lower monthly utility bills, as they provide a constant supply of warm water, whereas electric water heaters take longer to heat the water, utilizing more energy.

Another reason to go with propane today is, as stated above, they provide a constant supply of warm water, meaning you never have to space out your showers again, or waste time waiting for the water to warm up. Propane water heaters come in two options: traditional or tankless, and prove themselves extremely energy-efficient and can take up little space – crucial for cramped homes.

With so much to think about, choosing the right water heater should not be taken lightly. With Northwest Propane, the choice just got easier. With any comments, questions, or to schedule a propane water heater installation today, give us a call or visit us online.

Is Propane a Green Gas?

Northwest Texas PropaneAs is the case with many of us today, “going green” is becoming more and more routine in our daily lives. Whether it is walking instead of driving or simply turning the lights off when you’re not at home, each of us is taking little steps to reduce our carbon footprint. When it comes to propane, there can be a lot of unanswered questions as to its environmental effects. Thankfully, our North Texas propane experts at Northwest Propane can answer them for you.

The most common question regarding propane gas would seem to be: is propane a “green” gas? Simply put, yes, propane is one of the cleanest burning fossil fuels. Approved by the Clean Air Act of 1990 as an alternative fuel, propane is not harmful to soil or water, and propane powered appliances produce less greenhouse gas emissions than their electric counterparts.

Even when it comes to grilling, propane proves itself as the go-to green option. A charcoal grill releases 105 times more carbon monoxide into the environment than a propane-powered one, making the choice when it comes to cooking extremely clear. Water heaters also prove no contest for propane, as electric water heaters emit 2.5 times more greenhouse gases than our propane alternatives.

At Northwest Propane, we know you have a choice when it comes to your energy options. Be it for a grill, fireplace, heater, or any other essential appliance, propane has proven itself as an extremely efficient, environmentally-friendly option. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to give our Dallas TX propane company a call today, or contact us online for details.

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.
