Gas appliances are quite popular. Cooking is easier and you get better results with the precise, instant temperature control of a gas range. Gas fireplaces and fireplace inserts give you comfort and warmth with just the push of a button. Gas clothes dryers make doing laundry easier, thanks to faster drying and fewer wrinkles.
If you have a choice between propane and natural gas, you may be asking yourself if there’s really any difference between the two.
Propane isn’t the same as natural gas. In fact, it offers several advantages that you don’t get from natural gas!
One reason people like to use propane is that there’s a sense of security that comes with knowing they will always have fuel when they need it.
One of the biggest differences between propane and natural gas is that with a propane tank, your supply of gas will always be there for you.
With natural gas, you are reliant on a utility and its infrastructure. There have been reports at any time of the year about interruptions in service because of pipeline problems. When natural-gas pipes are damaged, huge numbers of customers could potentially find themselves without heat in the middle of a cold winter.
Not all gases are equally environmentally friendly. Natural gas is a greenhouse gas—its primary component is methane.
Conversely, propane is not a greenhouse gas. Because of its low emissions, propane is an approved alternative fuel listed in both the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendment and the 1992 Energy Policy Act.
If you want natural gas in your home, you must live in an area where it is available. Installing a new connection can be expensive, potentially running into tens of thousands of dollars when you add up getting a gas line to your home and then installing gas lines inside your home to your gas appliances.
