Propane is a clean, eco-friendly alternative fuel and can be up to five times more efficient than traditional fuels, resulting in less energy waste and better use of our planet's resources.
Originating mainly from natural gas production, propane is a non-toxic, non-poisonous gas that does not contaminate soil or water. It is already in use as an eco-friendly option by millions of Americans each and every day in furnaces, water heaters, air conditioners, fireplaces, appliances and outdoor grills.
According to the president and CEO of The Propane Education and Research Council (PERC), consumers, businesses and municipalities using propane can be assured that they are choosing a fuel that helps to reduce carbon emissions without compromising performance. At the same time, because over 85 percent of the propane used in this country is produced domestically, choosing propane as a fuel option is an eco-friendly way to reduce our dependence on foreign oil.
Propane burns cleanly and safely, and with regular maintenance by a licensed AAA Gas & Appliance professional, your propane appliances should continue to work reliably for years to come.
