Tired of Rising Electricity Costs? Switch to Propane Heating with Superior Propane

If you’re off the natural gas grid and using electricity to heat your home or water, Superior Propane is the cost-effective and reliable alternative for heating your home and water.


  • Electric baseboard heaters can make your home dryer during the coldest months of the year
  • Because they are installed on the wall, they are more obtrusive than propane options
  • Baseboard heaters don't provide any air circulation
  • The cost of electricity can make baseboard heaters expensive to operate


  • Like electric baseboard heating, electric furnaces produce dry heat
  • They can be more expensive to operate due to the high cost of electricity


  • Similar to electric baseboard and furnaces, electric heat pumps can produce dry heat
  • Ground source heat pumps are expensive to install
  • Electric heat pumps become less effective when the weather outside gets very cold requiring backup heat sources
  • Mini-split systems only provide comfort in a few rooms, not your entire home

considerations for electric heating:

High Energy Costs:

Electric heating systems, while common, can lead to higher energy bills, especially in colder climates. They often require more energy to produce the same level of warmth as propane systems, leading to increased costs during peak winter months. Additionally, electric heaters may not provide consistent heat distribution, resulting in unevenly heated spaces.

Inconsistent heat:

Electric heating systems often struggle with maintaining a consistent level of warmth throughout your home due to various factors. One of the primary issues is their reliance on convection currents to distribute heat. This can lead to certain areas of your home being warmer than others, resulting in discomfort and temperature imbalances. Additionally, electric heaters typically have a slower response time compared to propane systems, which means they may take longer to heat up and reach the desired temperature, especially in colder weather. In larger spaces or homes with poor insulation, electric heating may struggle to maintain consistent warmth, leading to the development of cold spots. Unlike propane systems, electric heaters often lack the ability to provide radiant heat, which warms objects and surfaces directly, contributing to a less cozy and efficient heating experience.


Environmental Impact:

Electric heating systems often rely on electricity generated from fossil fuels, such as coal and natural gas. This reliance contributes to carbon emissions and air pollution, which harm the environment and pose health risks to humans. In addition to emissions, the extraction and transportation of fossil fuels for electricity generation have adverse environmental effects. This indirect impact of electric heating increases the demand for fossil fuel-based power generation, further exacerbating environmental concerns. In contrast, propane heating offers a cleaner-burning alternative with lower greenhouse gas emissions, making it a more environmentally friendly choice to reduce your carbon footprint and minimize environmental impact.


Dependency on Power Grid:

Electric heating systems are heavily reliant on a functioning power grid. During power outages, these systems cease to provide heat, which can be a significant concern, especially in areas prone to outages or during severe weather conditions. This vulnerability can lead to discomfort and inconvenience when you need heat the most. In contrast, propane heating systems offer a reliable heat source that doesn't depend on the power grid, ensuring consistent warmth even during outages, providing added peace of mind.
