Propane Saves Money
An LPG water heater conserves enough energy and increases energy efficiency sufficiently to reduce a family’s energy cost by approximately $75 to $300 a year compared to the cost of operating an electric water heater. Typical energy savings range from $100 to $170 a year, or $1,100 to $1,870 over the expected 11-year useful life of a water heater.
Propane is Good for the Environment
Propane is a low-carbon fuel alternative, producing far fewer emissions than the equivalent amount of electricity generated from the U.S. grid.
Propane exhaust creates 60-70 percent less smog than the hydrocarbons in gasoline exhaust, according to studies by Southwest Research Institute.
Propane water heaters offer substantial air-quality benefits by reducing emissions of oxides of nitrogen (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO), sulfur dioxide and carbon dioxide, the main “greenhouse” gas. Compared to a typical electric water heater with a 0.93 energy efficiency factor, a propane water heater with a 0.58 energy efficiency factor reduces NOx emissions by approximately 90 percent, CO emissions by approximately 70 percent, sulfur dioxide by 99 percent and carbon dioxide by approximately 60 percent.
Propane cuts emissions of toxins and carcinogens like benzene and toluene by up to 96 percent, compared to gasoline, according to studies by Southwest Research Institute.
Propane won’t contaminate soil or groundwater because it’s non-toxic and non-poisonous. Spills vaporize rather than soaking into soil or water.
Converting small utility engines such as lawnmowers to burn propane instead of gasoline can reduce emissions of ozone precursors by one third and increase fuel economy by 14 percent.
