When thinking of propane gas most people typically think of filling up their bbq tanks and hitting the grill, however there are a multitude of uses for propane in your home that will give you added benefits immediately after switching.

Electric Dryer vs Propane Dryer

A lot of people aren’t aware that you can actually use propane to dry your clothes which has many benefits over the dated electric clothes dryer, those being.

Propane dryers are cheaper to operate with huge annual savings
Propane dryers on average can dry your items up to 66% quicker
Propane dryers and appliances have a much longer shelf life meaning less long term replacement costs

Simply switching your electric dryer over to a propane unit can significantly reduce your monthly power bill. Here is an example of the difference in power consumption between a standard electric dryer vs a standard propane dryer, based on the current CUC price per kWh effective Jan 1, 2021.


Reliable in Emergencies

Hurricane season is something we prepare for every year in Cayman and preparation is key to keep you and your family safe. Another benefit of switching to propane is to power your generator should your home lose power due to any natural disaster or a simple power outage.

Not only is filling your propane generator cheaper but the shelf life of propane gas outperforms gasoline generators by a mile.

“Rufus Youngblood, Director of Safety for Ferrellgas and a member of the technical committee for the NFPA 59 (Utility LP-Gas Plant Code), says if the propane container and valve are in good shape, storing propane for 10-30 years or more shouldn’t be a problem.”

With both gasoline and diesel fuel degrading over time and only having a shelf life expectancy of 6-12months, that 10-30 YEAR shelf life of propane makes it the clear winner and obvious choice.

Environmentally Friendly

We aren’t just called Clean Gas for branding purposes, propane is renowned for being one of the cleanest burning fossil fuels in the word.

Propane gas offers up to 43% lower greenhouse gas emissions than equivalent electricity produced from the power grid. In addition to lower greenhouse gas emissions and a lower carbon footprint it is also non-toxic and does not contaminate the environment around it compared to oil spills that we see globally which cause irreparable damages.

Chef Style Cooking

If you have never cooked on a gas stove top you might not know what you are missing out on! Having your oven and stove powered by propane gives you an instant heat source and allows you to really fine tune and maintain the heat level whilst cooking.

Not only are you enhancing your cooking experience and harnessing your inner chef by cooking with propane, you are also, again, going to save those hard-earned dollars. Approximately, Gas stoves will cost you about half as much to operate compared to a standard electric stovetop.
