Propane 101

LEARN THE BASICS ABOUT PROPANE

Propane is liquified petroleum gas created by refining raw crude oil or natural gas. It is widely used as an alternative fuel source in homes and is stored in underground and aboveground tanks that homeowners can refill or replace. Propane is a non-toxic, non-poisonous fuel that can help keep your home and appliances running efficiently. Many homeowners prefer propane over electricity for its comforting qualities and competitive cost.


  • CLEAN

    Propane is a low-carbon alternative fuel. It is approved as a clean alternative fuel under the Clean Air Act of 1990.


  • COMFORTING

    Many propane-powered appliances like fire pits and grills offer the charm and comfort of real flames — something that electric appliances simply can’t offer.


  • EFFICIENT

    Propane is an efficient energy source that can help reduce your family’s energy costs while keeping your home warm and comfortable.


  • SAFE

    When maintained properly, propane tanks are not considered highly dangerous. They do not contaminate the surrounding air, groundwater, or soil.
