Happy Earth Day from Hocon!

Chances are you already know what a versatile and cost-effective fuel propane is. Perhaps Hocon has already installed a propane appliance in your Connecticut home. But do you also know what environmental benefits propane offers as compared to electricity? In celebration of Earth Day, let’s take a look at some of propane’s environmental benefits.

Propane’s Green Benefits

The advantages of propane are clear when you compare homes that use propane to homes that don’t. In the case of an all-electric home versus one that uses propane for heating, the propane home will generate up to 30% fewer carbon emissions. A home that uses propane not just for heating but also for water heating, cooking, clothes drying, and space heating will produce up to 50% fewer carbon emissions than an all-electric house. Why? Propane appliances are extremely efficient. That efficiency means a smaller carbon footprint. Additionally, as the lightest and simplest hydrocarbon on earth, propane is one of the cleanest burning fossil fuels. It produces almost no greenhouse gases.

Consider propane’s superior efficiency with regards to the following appliances:

All that efficiency adds up to make propane appliances better for the environment than their electric counterparts and better for your budget.

Additionally, in the rare event of a leak, propane doesn’t damage the environment. It doesn’t harm the air, soil, water, plants, or water-based organisms. It just dissipates.
