Benefits of Propane Heating: What You Need to Know

Propane heating and why it’s right for you

One of the most common questions we receive at TPS Fuel is, “What are the benefits of switching to propane heat?”.  Propane is a popular choice for heating homes and businesses, for a number of reasons. It is a clean-burning and efficient fuel that can provide reliable heat during the colder months. However, before making the switch to propane with TPS Fuel, there are a few things to consider.

Availability and Accessibility

The first thing to consider when choosing propane as a heating fuel is its availability and accessibility in your area.

Efficiency and Cost

Propane is known for being a highly efficient fuel, meaning it can produce a lot of heat with a small amount of fuel. At TPS, we can help you compare the cost and efficiency of propane versus different fuels to determine which one is the best choice for your home or business.


Safety is always a top priority for our team at TPS, when it comes to any heating system. When using propane, it is crucial to take the necessary precautions to ensure the safe operation of your system. We ensure propane tanks are installed and maintained by professionals from our team to ensure they are functioning correctly and not leaking. You should also have a carbon monoxide detector installed in your home or business to detect any potential gas leaks.

Environmental Impact

Propane is a relatively clean-burning fuel compared to other fossil fuels like oil or coal. At TPS we can provide an energy alternative to help you minimize your carbon footprint when you make the switch to propane.

Maintenance and Upkeep

Propane heating systems require regular maintenance and upkeep to ensure they are functioning correctly. You should have your system inspected by a professional at least once a year to check for any leaks or other issues. You should also make sure that you have enough propane on hand to last through the heating season, so you don’t run out of fuel during the coldest months. At TPS we can automate these services for you to keep your costs low.
