2. Who uses propane?
Propane is a trusted and reliable energy source that is used by millions of Americans each day. It fulfills energy needs by burning cleanly and efficiently, giving consumers more value for their energy dollar. People use propane in or outside their homes for furnaces, fireplaces, water heaters, outdoor grills and appliances including dryers.

3. Is propane dangerous to the environment?
If used properly, propane is not a dangerous fuel. It’s an approved, alternative clean fuel listed in the 1990 Clean Air Act and the National Energy Policy Act of 1992. Propane is one of the cleanest burning of all alternative fuels. Propane is also nontoxic, so it’s not harmful to soil or water.

4. Why choose propane over electricity?
Propane is less expensive than electricity. When tank levels are properly maintained, propane provides a virtually uninterruptible power supply. You don’t have to worry about blackouts when electricity is over consumed, especially during the winter months.

5. Can I paint my propane tank to match my house?
It’s not recommended to paint your tank due to the sun’s rays on your tank. Darker colors will absorb more heat; therefore cause your tank to expand and increase pressure causing a possible leak or worse, explode. It’s best to leave it white. Besides, white blends well with every color.
