Making the switch from heating your home with oil to propane can make a large impact on your personal carbon footprint. Propane is a cleaner-burning fuel than heating oil and today propane furnaces are more efficient compared to their heating oil counterparts. Read on to learn more about the environmental benefits of switching to propane!
So, you’re currently heating your home with oil, but you no longer feel right about using a petroleum-based product. You want to create a positive change and may have even considered switching to electric heat for your home. But before you do that, did you know that heating with propane produces 43% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than heating with electricity? Making the switch from oil heat to propane can increase your furnace’s efficiency and decrease your carbon footprint.
Propane is a great fuel source to heat your home with. Today’s propane furnaces are 90-98% efficient – meaning they consume most of the fuel in the combustion process and produce fewer emissions. In fact, if your home uses a boiler to provide heat, installing a high-efficiency propane boiler system can produce 4000 fewer pounds of CO2 as compared with a heating oil system.
With most of propane being produced domestically, its readily available nature reduces the need for transportation of the product, which can lead to an overall reduction in emissions throughout the supply chain. This helps to protect the planet we love for future generations.
