Uses of Propane in Your Home

Propane is one of the most versatile fuels available, so it really makes sense to speak with Hocon Gas to explore the many ways that propane can make your life easier—and more fun! With a built-in supply of fuel on your property, there are so many options at your fingertips.

Here are just 6 ideas to consider

Whole-House Heat

You can always count on staying toasty warm with a top-quality central heating system—especially if you have Hocon Gas in your corner! High-efficiency propane furnaces deliver all the warm air you need, no matter how cold our New England winters get. Heated air from a furnace is much warmer than temperatures provided by older, more inefficient electric heat pumps. Read more.

Always Hot Water

A tankless propane water heater uses a flame so hot you no longer need to keep water sitting in a storage tank, eating up energy dollars while it waits to be used. What’s more, it’s almost impossible to run out of hot water, no matter how many showers, hot baths or laundry loads are running. Read more about propane water heaters.

Cook Like a Pro

You’ll never see an electric stove being used on Top Chef! Gas stoves give you much better temperature control and heat distribution than electric stoves. The most efficient stoves have an automatic electric ignition system, which saves propane because the pilot light is not burning continuously. Propane cooktops, ranges and ovens are available in the latest styles, including commercial-grade stainless steel.

Hearth and Home

With a propane fireplace, there’s more heat without the work and fuss. Light your fire with the flip of a switch and then enjoy the incredible atmosphere of today’s log sets and realistic flames. Gas fireplaces can produce twice as much heat as wood-burning fireplaces at about a third of the cost. And there’s no soot, ash or smoke. Read more about our hearth products.

Clothes Encounters

Gas dryers typically dry your clothes 25% faster than electric models while being gentler on fabrics. Their operating cost is about half as expensive as electric dryers and the moist heat that propane dryers produce will cause less wear and tear on your favorite clothes.

Outdoor Living

From BBQ grills and patio heaters to fire pits, fireplaces and gas lights, no other fuel can do as much as propane can to make lounging in your backyard a pleasant experience. Thanks to advances in flexible piping, you can now extend your use of propane to a wider range of outdoor products than ever before.
