As you try to decide whether or not to make the switch to propane, here are some things to consider, especially if you have a heating oil system:

  1. How old is your oil tank? If it’s nearing the end of its lifespan or needs substantial maintenance or repairs, then this is a good time to weigh the pros and cons of switching to propane.
  2. Propane is efficient. Most propane furnaces are 90% efficient. Especially if you have an old heating oil furnace, it might only be 60% efficient. Another reason age matters when you’re weighing your options.
  3. Propane is nontoxic. You don’t have to worry about leaks when you use propane. Leaks are rare, and in the event that there is a leak, no damage will be done to the soil, water, or organisms in the vicinity. Resolving a heating oil leak can be expensive, and it will do damage to the environment.
  4. You’ll save space. Heating oil systems take up more space in your home—space you’ll get back if you switch to propane.
  5. Propane is more versatile. Heating oil is a bit of a one trick pony. It can only heat your home and water. Propane, on the other hand can do all that and more. It can power a wide range of appliances in and outside your home. It’s even portable, so you can take it camping, tailgating, and more!
  6. Propane lasts. Under proper conditions, you can safely keep a propane tank in storage for up to 40 years! And very little maintenance is involved.
  7. Propane is green. Compared to heating oil, propane produces significantly less emissions. With a smaller carbon footprint, it’s the greener choice.
