Propane a popular option


Propane has many uses that extend beyond the barbecue. At home, propane can fuel furnaces and boilers, space heaters, water heaters, fireplaces, refrigerat­ors, dryers, pool heaters, generators and portable heaters. On farms it is used to dry crops, heat greenhouse­s and livestock facilities and power irrigation systems. Industrial uses include forklifts, constructi­on heaters, brick dryers, metal heating and processing. Many propane users will contact local propane suppliers during the warmer months to setup a propane price contract that fixes or limits their propane price through the winter. Some propane suppliers refer to programs with fixed propane prices as “propane pre-buy.”
