Propane

Propane (LP) Gas Delivery

Davis Oil and Propane added propane (also known as LP) gas to our product line to better serve our customers’ home heating and energy needs. Propane fuel is valued for being diverse and versatile, from cooking and heating your home to powering everyday appliances. Our team installs propane tanks in new and existing homes and small businesses working closely with builders as well as heating and air conditioning companies to ensure the installation of your propane tank is done correctly. We deliver propane gas to your home or business as a will call fill or on an automatic fill schedule so you don’t ever have to worry about running out.

Do you have an existing underground tank owned by another fuel provider? Don’t worry, we can fix that. Call us for a free site visit so that we give you some options.

Benefits Of Using Propane Gas

Storage – Propane is stored very easily, which is one reason why our residential and commercial customers choose it over other types of fuel. Because it can be stored easily above ground or below ground.

Clean Energy – Propane’s environmental safety is another reason why it’s chosen over other types of fuel; it is non-toxic for water and land. If you do experience an unexpected propane leak please refer to our safety information.

Versatility and Cost – Propane is very versatile and can perform a wide range of residential and commercial functions such as cooking, drying, fueling a fireplace, fueling machinery, and heating garages or offices. This clean-burning fuel provides heat that is 20 degrees warmer as compared to electric heat pumps. Furthermore, propane costs half as much per BTU as electricity and gas fireplaces tend to cost anywhere from 30 to 60 percent less per hour of energy than wood fireplaces.

Safety – Rigorous regulations and codes developed by the propane industry and the National Fire Protection Agency ensure that propane is safe and is used responsibly. In addition to these regulations, propane has its own built-in safety features. For instance, it will not ignite when combined with air unless the source igniting it has a Fahrenheit temperature of 940 degrees. And, as it is naturally non-toxic, propane gas poses no threat to soil or water.

Clean Energy – Recognized as a clean source of energy, homeowners have been able to reduce the number of emissions being produced. Since propane is a gas it does not spill, pool, or create residue. Propane also produces 40 times fewer harmful emissions than burning wood.

Efficiency – Known as a clean energy source, propane gas can drastically decrease overall energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions by up to 68 percent. Propane furnaces round out with an annual fuel efficiency of 95 percent or higher, which is tremendously better than electric furnaces. When homeowners are dissatisfied with their heat pump, the common concern is that their house is too drafty, which propane eliminates. If you’re looking for a warm and exceptionally livable home, propane is for you! 

Household Uses For Propane

Propane Furnace – One of the reasons that homeowners are switching to propane furnaces is because of their longevity. Propane furnaces, on average, last five to ten years longer than their electric counterparts.

Propane burns hotter than many fuels, heating the air within your home faster. This, in turn, circulates hot air throughout more effectively.

Propane Boilers – Propane boilers are very effective in cutting down overall energy use, which cuts down the energy bill. This heating system emits 37 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions than electricity and requires less maintenance.

Propane Fireplaces – Propane fireplaces provide a much more effective dispersion of heat than wood fireplaces. It has also been known to burn 40 times as long without the harmful emissions while providing five to six times the heating capacity.

Water Heating – The third-largest energy use in the home is residential water heating. Propane water heaters can reduce your energy bill to half that of electric water heaters. Water heaters also reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 60 percent.

Backup (Standby) Generators – Winter storms and other weather events can easily result in power disruption that has several repercussions. Be prepared for the worst weather conditions with propane-powered backup generators!
