Millions worldwide are using propane to make their lives
more comfortable because compared to other sources of
energy, the advantages of propane are tough to beat.
Clean - propane is clean burning and
Reliable - propane works when and where
other energy sources don't
Good Value - propane can offer significant
savings over the alternatives
Safe - propane has built-in safety
properties along with stringent safety regulations
Propane is Clean and Efficient
Compared to gasoline, propane yields 12 percent less
carbon dioxide, about 20 percent less nitrous oxide, and
as much as 60 percent less carbon monoxide. (World LP
Gas Association, January 2003, and California Energy
Commission, January 2003)
Propane cuts emissions of toxins and carcinogens like
benzene and toluene by up to 96 percent, compared to
gasoline, according to studies by the Southwest Research
Institute. Propane has long been recognized as the
"green" energy. By using this exceptional energy,
homeowners can help cut emissions and protect the
Propane is an approved alternative fuel listed in both
the Clean Air Act of 1990 and the National Energy Policy
Act of 1992.
Propane is nontoxic and insoluble in water. Because it
is released as a gas, it doesn't spill, pool, or leave a
Propane exhaust creates 60 percent to 70 percent less
smog-producing hydrocarbons than gasoline, according to
studies by the Southwest Research Institute.
Propane is There When You Want it
Almost 90 percent of all propane is produced right here
in the United States. You can always count on it.
Propane gas - used by millions of households each year -
gives homeowners a reliable answer.
Propane is Fuel Efficient
Propane offers you a very attractive combination: it
costs less and works harder.
Propane burns hotter and more evenly than many other
fuels. Propane appliances have a shorter energy savings
payback period (the time it takes for an appliance to
pay for itself via energy savings).* With propane, you
pay less for your energy and you save money each time
you use it.

family of five.
Safety is Our Highest Priority
Propane has quite a remarkable safety record, due in
large part to the stringent codes and regulations
developed by the propane industry and the National Fire
Protection Association (NFPA). Statistics compiled by
the NFPA indicate that the safest way to heat is with
Propane has Built-in Safety Properties. It won't ignite
when combined with air unless the source of ignition
reaches 940° F. It is nontoxic and produces minimal
emissions. It is not harmful to soil or water.
