Propane VS Electric


After this winter, you may be considering alternatives to propane, but let me break down some math that may make you reconsider. If you compare an electric furnace to a propane furnace with the same output and efficiency ratings, you could be paying significantly more for electric than with propane. Here's why...

1 gallon of propane is equal is 27 kwh. So let's assume you have an electric rate of $.12/kwh (this is average for our area check with your provider for your rate).

The math is:

27 x $.12 kwh = $3.24/gallon of gas.

In other words, your electric rate is equal to paying $3.24/gallon gas.

WOW! See the primary financial advantage of propane?
