Summer Propane Use
The winter chill might be gone – but that doesn’t mean your propane needs are too!
Summertime brings its own unique needs for propane. From outdoor entertaining to lawn maintenance, propane can serve a variety of purposes throughout the warm summer months.
Since propane is a fuel source that you can count on year-round, you can use the summer months to stock up and take advantage of traditionally lower pricing when the weather is nice. Prices tend to drop in the spring and summer because of lower demand.
Propane’s excellent shelf life means you can fill your tank at the reduced pricing and have lots of propane when the fall arrives. Remember that your propane tank needs to reach as low as 40%, in order to request a refill.
Here are some examples of how to make the most of your propane this summer:
Grilling is a summer staple. Not only is it delicious, but it keeps the house a little cooler without the added heat of cooking in the oven. Propane grills are especially helpful, as they ignite easily, distribute heat evenly, and are easy to keep clean. They also require little maintenance, so you have less to worry about.
While a pool is a great way to cool off during the summer, it can get chilly at times. A pool heater can ensure you’re able to continue using your pool and keep it at a comfortable temperature. If you power it with propane, you can also enjoy cost savings and high efficiency.
Although the days are warm, evenings can get a little cool in the summer months. Having a patio heater will let you use your outdoor space to its full potential while being environmentally friendly and safety conscious.
What says summer more than a fire in the evening? With a propane-powered fire pit, you can have all of the ambiance and fun of a fire, with the flick of a switch!
Propane’s versatility works in its favor on this option. You can turn your backyard into an oasis, without running your hydro bill sky high. Use propane to light up the night with your tiki torches and be prepared to host all of the neighbourhood’s backyard parties going forward.
Propane can also power different gardening tools! Use a propane-powered weed burner or mower to keep your outdoor space looking its best all summer long.
Other Indoor Appliances
You may only think of propane for heating your home, but you can use it for a variety of appliances in your home. Consider switching to a propane water heater, clothes dryer, or stovetop, and get use out of your propane year-round!
Back-up Power Source
As with any time of year, propane makes an excellent back-up power source. Its limitless shelf life makes it the ideal source for power during a storm or blackout. If you live in an area that tends to have rough summer storms, you may want to consider getting a propane-powered generator in case you lose electricity.
Whether you’re hosting a BBQ or creating your own backyard oasis, propane can help!
