What Is Propane?

Have you ever wondered what propane is made of? Propane is made as a byproduct of natural gas processing and crude oil refining. It’s often compressed and stored as a liquid. For that reason, propane is sometimes called liquefied petroleum gas or LP gas or LPG. When it’s used as a fuel for vehicles, it’s called propane Autogas.

Where Is Propane Made?

Most of the propane used in America (over 90%) is produced in North America. That means using propane reduces our country’s dependency on foreign oil.

Does Propane Freeze?

Given how cold it’s been this winter, you might be wondering or worrying about the propane in your tank freezing. Well, don’t worry. The freezing point of propane is -44 degrees Fahrenheit.

How Efficient Is Propane?

Propane is extremely efficient. That’s why it’s the choice for so many of our residential and commercial customers. Propane is often a more efficient source of energy than electricity. For example, a propane clothes dryer works faster and more energy-efficiently than an electric clothes dryer. Also, a propane water heater offers roughly double the water recovery rate of an electric water heater. And should cost less to operate. Furthermore, propane water heaters take up less room in your home and offer better accuracy in terms of temperature adjustment.

Is Propane Safe?

As with most things, propane should be handled with care. However, it also has a great safety track record thanks to robust regulations. Plus, in the rare case of a leak, propane doesn’t do any harm to the surrounding soil, water, or animals. It’s non-toxic.
