Should you switch to propane?
On average people who switch from heating oil to propane save approximately $500 annually. It’s important to remember this is an estimate and the exact savings will fluctuate based on consumption, oil prices, propane prices, and your home or building’s Energy Star level (including factors such as the age, build style, windows, insulation type, etc).
Furthermore, there are some additional risks and costs with oil. The smallest oil leak can require expensive clean-up and as such, insurance rates are generally higher for oil compared to propane. Plus, propane furnaces and other appliances require less maintenance than their oil counterparts.
Environmental facts for propane
Propane is recognized for emitting less greenhouse gas emissions than other fuel types and is one of the most versatile and clean fuels today.
Studies show that propane emits 38% less greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) than oil in furnaces. In addition, propane emits 60% less carbon monoxide than gasoline, 98% less particulates than diesel, and contains effectively no sulfur. (Source: Canadian Propane Association)
Unlike oil, in the unlikely event of a leak, propane becomes a vapour that will not contaminate soil, water, or air. A fact that lies particularly close to the hearts of our farmers.
