Things get quite busy on the propane front in the weeks leading up to summer here in our service area, when everyone suddenly realizes they need clean, green propane to power their outdoor residential or commercial festivities.

When it comes to propane delivery, May is “GO time”, so be sure to plan ahead. Contact us today to schedule an appointment for a propane refill or service for your propane-fired equipment – or to join the Irish Propane family of customers!

If you only use clean, green propane gas for your weekend tailgating parties, you’re not taking full advantage of its amazing versatility.

Propane can power just about any appliance inside or outside your home – and more often than not do it more efficiently and with fewer harmful emissions than other fuels.

Consider these propane possibilities:

  1. Water Heaters – High efficiency propane water heaters work faster and more efficiently than electric models – especially propane tankless water heaters, which supply an unlimited flow of hot water and can lower your bills by 30 percent.
  2. Generators – A propane backup generator can protect your family, your values, and your home during a severe weather emergency.
  3. Furnaces – According to the U.S. Department of Energy, heating a home with a propane heating system has cost far less than heating with an electric system in recent years. Propane burns hotter, too, which means it will warm your home faster when the mercury drops.
  4. Space Heaters – Efficient vented and vent-free propane space heaters are available in many sizes and styles. Rescue an unused room or workspace with precision temperature control and consistent heat!
  5. Outdoor Living – Add a propane pool heater, built-in cooking grill, patio heater or fire pit and you’ll make your outdoor space your family’s favorite place to entertain well into the crisp fall months.
  6. Cooking ranges – There’s a reason why 95 percent of chefs choose to cook with gas: it gives you unmatched precision when it comes to controlling cooking temperature. If you want to cook right, do it with propane gas.
  7. Clothes Dryers – Propane dryers run hotter and more efficiently than electric models – and because they generate less static, they’re gentler on your clothes, too.
  8. Fireplaces – Propane fireplaces give you the comfort of a hearth at the push of a button – at about four times the efficiency of a wood-burning fireplace. They also work well as a space heater in the event of a power outage!

Residential propane service from Irish Propane is nothing new.  In fact, we have provided this service in Buffalo, NY since the 1980’s.   First though, a little propane history.

What is propane?

Propane is a hydrocarbon and is at times referred to as liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).  Propane is produced by crude oil refining and natural gas processing.  Over 95% of propane used in the US is produced in North America.  It is colorless and non-toxic.  As with natural gas, an identifying odor that smells like rotten eggs is added so the gas can be detected by smell.

Who uses propane gas?

Propane is used by over 12.6 million U.S. households for heating and by millions more for agricultural crop drying, commercial fork-lifts, industrial temp-heat construction sites, and Autogas for transportation fleets.

What can propane fuel in your home?

Propane is a clean, versatile fuel that is frequently found in homes for home heat, water heating, cooking, fireplaces, and clothes drying.  Outdoors, propane can heat swimming pools and hot tubs.

What assurances do I have about properly trained technicians?

Propane is used safely by millions of Americans and stored, handled, and transported by thousands of well trained professionals every day.  That safety comes from stringent codes, regulations and by the propane industry’s extensive training and safety awareness programs.  The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) and the National Propane Gas Association (NPGA) operate the Certified Employee Training Program (CETP) through which propane technicians train and get certified in all aspects of delivering propane, installing and servicing propane equipment.  We update and conduct our training programs frequently to ensure that our technicians are equipped with the most current safety procedures and information available in the industry.

Irish Propane is your fair and honest residential propane company.

The calendar may say Spring and with the cold weather season behind us, the last thing a residential propane customer wants to do is research prices for the upcoming winter.  It can be such a hassle to do all the research to find the best price available and signup with a new company only to find out days later that some other company is offering a lower price.

It’s called the old “bait and switch” tactic.  But that is only the first part of the hassle.   Some propane companies out there use the cable company tactic where there is a low price promotional period to get you to switch companies only to raise their price substantially year after year.  Scheduling a time to have the old company uninstall their tank then having to schedule a time for the installation of the new tank- talk about hassle!   Why are you having to think about this year after year?  Don’t you want to take all the guesswork out of this to relax and enjoy yourself?

There is a hassle-free solution called Fair and Honest pricing from Irish Propane.

What does Fair and Honest pricing mean to you, the consumer?  We realize it can be such a hassle to have to think about this so we guarantee you will get our best price available year after year.  No more price shock each month and no more having to do endless research and no more price shopping.  We want the privilege of having you as a customer for life and in return our pledge to you will be that you will get our best price available- every year!  Sound good?  Want more?

With your Fair and Honest pricing comes a Personal Service Guarantee.  Our knowledgeable and courteous office staff, Anita and Mike will answer our office phone every business day to answer any question or address any issue you may have with your propane account.  No getting bounced around to call centers and absolutely no automated call attendants.  It will be like calling up your trusted best buddy for help.

We are so sure of our Fair and Honest pricing that we are willing to put our money where our mouth is in our Referral Program.  Celebrate your hassle-free Fair and Honest price with all your neighbors and for every neighbor that signs a new residential account with Irish Propane will mean $125 to you and $125 to your neighbor- it’s that easy!

Combine all of this with Irish Propane’s superior service 24/7/365 and what you now have is a hassle free, Fair and Honest solution.  So call today so you can sit and relax tomorrow!
