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?
