Q: Why are propane appliances more efficient than electric ones?

A: Propane is one of the most powerful — and versatile — fuels available. Much like electricity, propane can be used to run just about any appliance, however, propane will almost always do a better job of it. It’s cleaner-burning than electricity and requires far less fuel to produce the same amount of heat energy. For example, just one gallon of propane equals 27 kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity!

Propane space heaters, wall heaters and propane fireplaces all heat rooms faster than electric models, and typically run more efficiently.

In the kitchen, propane-powered cooking ranges offer precise temperature control that no electric stovetop can match. And if you’re looking to dry clothes faster with less wear and tear on your clothes than electric dryers, propane is the way to go.
