GasTec offers many services for residential homeowners in Bucks County, PA and parts of Delaware and New Jersey who are considering making the switch to propane. Whether you're looking to propane for in-home heating, pool heating, hot water, or power supply for generators, cooking, lighting and more, GasTec can build you a manageable plan that will fit your budget and reduce your energy costs.
As a highly efficient, cost effective fuel source, propane is the ideal alternative fuel to help you circumvent the rising costs of gas and oil, while also making your home more environmentally friendly.
You may be surprised to find out that propane is actually considered a non-contaminant by the EPA, since it is a non-toxic, non-caustic gas that won't hurt your local water, air or land resources. But aside from its many environmental benefits, propane is also more efficient when compared to most oil-fueled heating units. We can attest to this, as well as our residential clients in PA, DE and NJ who rely on our propane services.
The fact is, propane burners can reach up to 97 to 98 percent efficiency, though most are about 90% efficient. Oil units, however, are usually 80% efficient and, if not properly taken care of, they can lose about 10 to 15 percent efficiency throughout the year. Additionally, maintenance plans for oil units can cost you up to $400 each year. By choosing propane, you can expect almost zero yearly maintenance costs as well as increased unit efficiency. This, along with our competitive propane prices, makes propane cost-effective and environmentally friendly.
Propane units also offer comfort benefits that many consumers often overlook. For example, a common heat pump will provide air that ranges from about 95-100 degrees, which is about the same temperature of the human body. Because this air is around the same temperature of our bodies–or slightly lower–the air coming from your vents may feel cooler than expected. Conversely, a propane system will provide heated air at around 120 degrees, allowing you and your family to get comfortable in a shorter period of time during those frigid winter months.
