 In Fuel, Propane

Is your home heated using furnace oil or electricity? If the answer is yes, then you would reap some major advantages of switching your home’s fuel source to propane. Here’s what you need to know:

Environmental Benefits

Propane is a clean-burning, low-carbon fuel source that emits virtually no air pollutants Propane is non-toxic, and will not contaminate groundwater or soil.


High-efficiency propane furnaces have an AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) rating of between 95-98%. Their increased efficiency can mean substantial savings in a homeowner’s annual energy bill.


Depending on your previous fuel source, you could potentially see savings of up to 35%.. Three factors contribute to these savings:

1) The cost per unit of fuel

2) The amount of energy in that unit

3) The efficiency of the appliance

In addition, when you discontinue the use of furnace oil in your home, you can typically see a $100-$300 annual savings on home insurance.


Propane can do far more than heat your home, it can fuel everything from hot water heaters, fireplaces, kitchen ranges, BBQ’s, to clothes dryers, and more. Propane can also fuel generators to provide electricity to your home in the event of a power outage.


Propane infrastructure in Canada is well developed, with tremendous capacity to produce an abundant supply that is highly portable via truck, rail, and pipeline across Canada. Propane is a reliable and accessible fuel source for rural and remote communities where natural gas is unavailable.
