All about propane

Used by millions of Americans, propane has remained one of the most trusted household fuels for more than a century. It is colorless, nontoxic and has virtually no smell other than a very mild odor added to help detect gas leaks.

Propane is extremely versatile and can power everything from farm equipment to cooking grills. It is commonly used inside the home for space heating, fires in fireplaces, drying clothes and heating water. Outside, propane can be used for lighting, powering grills or BBQs, and heating pools and spas.

Propane is also incredibly convenient when the power goes out, especially if you have a generator. In addition to heating and powering residences, propane is used in commercial, industrial and agricultural industries as well as emerging technologies.
