On an island thirty miles out to sea, propane fuels the homes of Nantucket with comfort and reliability. Propane can be used to power a variety of appliances within your home. From furnaces and boilers that heat your entire home, to water heaters and stoves, to grills and outdoor entertainment equipment, propane provides exceptional comfort and efficiency.
HEAT YOUR HOME - Propane furnaces offer best-in-class efficiency, with ratings from 90 to 98 percent, and will provide comfortable and consistent heat during even the coldest winter weather. Propane-powered boilers offer efficiency, space savings, and the versatility to provide space heating and water heating. Even in the coldest outdoor climates where a dual-fuel hybrid system is used, propane improves the efficiency and comfort of air- or ground-source heat pump systems.
HEAT YOUR WATER - Propane water heaters use less energy, cost less to operate, and have fewer emissions compared with electric models.
COOK LIKE A PRO - Instant on and off, more precise temperature control, and more even heating are only a few reasons professional chefs choose propane over electric. Serious cooking demands propane cooking appliances and the advantages of propane don't end in the kitchen. Propane cooking appliances offer greater efficiency and energy savings, too.
DRY YOUR CLOTHES EFFICIENTLY - Propane clothes dryers offer faster drying that's easier on fabrics, produces fewer wrinkles, and delivers greater energy efficiency compared with electric models.
FIREPLACES - Nothing beats the warmth and flicker of a real flame from a propane fireplace. Not only do propane fireplaces provide six times the heating capacity of wood burning models, there's no soot or ash to clean up, and no firewood to store.
OUTDOOR LIVING - The benefits of propane don't end at the front door. With propane, you can transform any outdoor space. Full outdoor kitchens, patio heaters, fire pits, flame lighting, and more — all powered by propane — will keep the fun going well into the night.
FURNACES & BOILERS - Commercial gas furnaces provide heated air at a significantly warmer temperature than most electric options, to provide steady and reliable comfort.
WATER HEATING - For commercial applications, propane can heat water quickly, and with incredible efficiency.
COMMERCIAL KITCHENS – According to data from the Propane Gas Association of New England, Ninety-six percent of professional chefs prefer cooking with gas, for precise temperature control, instant on/off, and its other advantages.
CLOTHES DRYING - Businesses that require a fast turnaround on laundry will appreciate propane clothes dryers. They’re not only faster, they’re up to 20 percent more energy efficient.
FIREPLACES - Propane fireplaces not only add ambience to lobbies or other spaces, they’re significantly warmer and more energy efficient compared with electric or wood fireplaces. Plus, there’s no firewood to store, and no ash or soot to clean up.
GENERATORS - Power outages are a fact of island life. A propane standby generator can save a business during an outage by keeping the doors open, or by protecting vital systems and merchandise.
CONSTRUCTION EQUIPMENT - Propane’s portability, low emissions, and ease of refueling makes it a great choice for construction equipment, including generators, heating, scissor lifts, and even work trucks.
