You can feel good about using propane as a residential fuel source, because propane is an approved alternative fuel in both the Clean Air Act of 1990 and the National Energy Policy Act of 1992. A gallon of propane burned produces about half the carbon dioxide (CO2) as a gallon of fuel oil. Compared per BTU of fuel, propane releases less CO2 than ethanol, gasoline, biodiesel, kerosene or coal. In traditional tank water heating, electric heaters produce 150 times the greenhouse gas emissions of a propane heater.
As you probably know, propane is also very energy efficient. Its unique, natural properties mean it works harder and more efficiently with less waste. Currently, propane works harder by burning hotter than other energy sources. Additionally, technological innovations are advancing the power and performance of this already efficient fuel.
