Poore's Propane is your propane provider. This versatile fuel offers you year-round comfort, from comforting propane-fired fireplaces and room heaters ... to powering appliances like your stove, clothes dryer or water heater ... to lighting up your summer with your gas grill, heated pool or hot tub, outdoor heater, or bug-zapping 'skeeter-eater.
We simplify your propane usage by providing a leased tank that suits your needs, if you need it. (If you own your own tank, we'll deliver to that instead.) When you open your account, we work with you to identify the appropriate tank size and location, then we install the tank with a regulator and connect it.
If you are switching to Poore's from another supplier, we can generally manage the tank transfer with no inconvenience to you. And if any new gas piping is required, our expert team can perform the installation to your specifications at our hourly rate.
Tanks and regulators require periodic inspection and maintenance, and we handle those responsibilities at no additional charge for a leased tank.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, heating a home in the U.S. with propane costs far less than heating with electricity. For 2010, the representative average cost for propane was $24.31 per million btu, compared to $33.70 for electricity. In addition, over time, propane water heaters can cost one-third less to operate and recover water twice as quickly as electric water heaters.
A propane gas furnace heats air to about 130°F to 140°F and operates in short intervals to minimize operating costs. An electric heat pump produces heat below body temperature (98.6°F), so the air actually feels cool when placing your hand in front of a vent.
Propane-fueled furnaces last 5 to 10 years longer than electric heat pumps, on average.
Propane can be stored safely in a tank on your property, while electricity is subject to power outages. Reliable propane works when and where other energy sources don't.
It can be used to power so many things:
Propane has long been recognized as the "green" energy. By using this exceptional energy, homeowners can help cut emissions and protect the environment. Propane is an approved alternative fuel listed in both the Clean Air Act of 1990 and the National Energy Policy Act of 1992. Moreover, propane is nontoxic and insoluble in water. Because it is released as a gas, it doesn't spill, pool, or leave a residue.
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). Propane also has built-in safety properties: it won't ignite when combined with air unless the source of ignition reaches 940°F. Propane gas is nontoxic and produces minimal emissions, and is not harmful to soil or water.
While electricity is measured in hard-to-understand "kilowatt hours," propane is measured in familiar "gallons."
