En­vi­ron­men­tally friendly meets eco­nom­i­cal

The Prince George Citizen - The Citizen - Real Estate Weekly - - Real Estate Weekly -

In to­day’s so­ci­ety we are of­ten con­fronted with the de­ci­sion to be ei­ther cost ef­fi­cient or en­vi­ron­men­tally con­scious. Get­ting to work, heat­ing our home, and wash­ing our clothes are all choices that im­pact both our wal­let and our en­vi­ron­ment. In many cases con­ve­nience and econ­omy do not trans­late to en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly. How­ever, as tech­nol­ogy de­vel­ops and the drive for en­vi­ron­men­tal preser­va­tion con­tin­ues in Canada, more cost-ef­fec­tive and eco-friendly op­tions are emerg­ing.

One place in par­tic­u­lar that all Canadian fam­i­lies are look­ing for an eco­nom­i­cal way to limit their car­bon foot­print is at home. Ris­ing elec­tric­ity costs have many Canadian fam­i­lies look­ing for an al­ter­na­tive en­ergy source to use. Propane is a mod­ern en­ergy source, with an en­vi­able safety record, that pro­vides ex­cep­tional value for hun­dreds of thou­sands of Cana­di­ans. Propane is a clean-burning gas that of­fers home­own­ers en­hanced air qual­ity and in­creased per­for­mance for ap­pli­ances such as pool, pa­tio, space and wa­ter heaters, clothes dry­ers, and re­frig­er­a­tors.

Propane is a ver­sa­tile fuel and its value comes through in all of its ap­pli­ca­tions. Stud­ies show that heat­ing a home with propane costs half as much on av­er­age as heat­ing a home with elec­tric­ity. When it comes to hot wa­ter, propane heaters can be less ex­pen­sive to op­er­ate than elec­tric ones.

Along with propane’s strong eco­nomics, its avail­abil­ity is equally strong. Canada is the sixth largest pro­ducer of propane in the world, mak­ing the en­ergy source avail­able to all Cana­di­ans. Plus, the coun­try is home to in­dus­try lead­ers like Su­pe­rior Propane, who have helped make us­ing it for home heat­ing as sim­ple as pos­si­ble.Their new mySUPERIOR on­line por­tal even al­lows home­own­ers to or­der propane, check their ac­count, and pay on­line.
