Beat the heat with a clean, safe and reliable power source
With temperatures continuing to rise, power outages on the rise, wildfires and hurricane season, now is a good time to start thinking about safe, efficient and cost-effective backup power sources.
Pinnacle Propane, a leading propane supplier and servicer for homes and businesses across the United States, seeks to spread the word about the many benefits propane offers and why it has become increasingly popular. In particular, propane backup power provides affordable flexibility for everyone: homeowners, businesses, commercial building owners and operators, and others.
“Propane generators can provide electricity when the power goes out for 30 minutes or 30 days, and all your appliances continue to operate as normal,” said Curtis Tyler, Pinnacle Propane District Manager. “Propane is an energy source that you can carry with you wherever you go. How many other sources are so versatile?
As winter approaches, Tyler said vent-less propane heaters are a great source of heat for colder areas of your home that don’t need electricity. Additionally, propane stoves can operate without electricity, and propane stoves are safer than wood stoves and do not require creosote flue cleaning.
“Propane is available everywhere you want to use it and doesn’t require a pipeline or electrical grid to get it to your location, so it’s perfect if you’re off the grid,” Tyler said.
Tyler also points out the cost savings of using propane. The operating cost is usually lower than the cost of electricity or oil, which means you can save money on your monthly heating bills. Propane also burns cleaner than other fuels, releasing fewer pollutants into the environment, and resulting in better air quality. This makes it an environmentally friendly option for those looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint.
“Propane is one of the most reliable energy sources available today,” Tyler said. “With a propane system, you don’t have to worry about losing power during storms or power outages because propane will still be available even if there’s no electricity or natural gas nearby.”
Propane systems are also designed with safety in mind. They are less likely to cause fires due to overheating compared to electrical systems. Because propane tanks are stored outside your home, they pose no danger inside your home.
Conversion to propane heat offers several benefits over traditional fuel sources such as oil or electricity. Not only does it keep you safe during inclement weather, but you will also save money on your monthly energy bills by using this efficient type of heating. In addition, it improves the air quality in your home and provides an environmentally friendly option that reduces pollution from burning fossil fuels.
