Whether you are seeking an economical source of heat, or to power your appliances more efficiently, we’ve got your business’s commercial propane needs covered.
In fact, propane is one of the keys to success for businesses across Texas. Here’s a look at some of the types of businesses we work with, and how commercial propane makes a difference for them. Read on to learn more about all the ways propane can help your business succeed.
Why is propane best for businesses? Top-notch efficiency!
Propane appliances are simply more efficient than their electric counterparts, which is a boon to your budget and bottom line. Today’s propane heating systems are capable of up to 98% efficiency. This allows propane appliances like water heaters, cooking ranges and laundry dryers to get the job done in less time, using warmer heat. Utilizing propane keeps energy costs down, in a way that electric appliances just cannot.
Top industries enjoying propane
There are so many ways commercial operations can be improved by using propane, and its versatility, portability, and reliability make it easy to use. Plus, you won’t need to rely on an energy utility for curing, heating, or powering your equipment. Some of the industries that benefit from propane include:
- Restaurants, wedding venues, hotels, motels, and all-inclusive resorts power their commercial kitchen equipment like deep fryers, indoor and outdoor grills, ranges, broilers, and warming stations with propane. This efficient, cost-effective fuel also adds comfort and lengthens the season for outdoor dining and entertainment areas with deck and patio heaters.
- The agriculture industry relies heavily on propane to power everything from crop drying operations to sanitizing milking processes, to heating poultry production facilities, greenhouses, hog barns, farmhouses, water tanks, and more.
- Hospitality businesses, nursing homes, and health care facilities. From bedding to towels to tablecloths and beyond, propane dryers keep the days running smoothly at these facilities—and leave less wrinkles than electric dryers!
- Convenience stores, schools, and hospitals. A propane generator can maintain power to computer servers when the power goes out, which can make all the difference for a business.
- Construction companies and builders use propane-powered temporary heaters to keep their projects on track, their employees comfortable, and their pipes from freezing.
- Industrial operations use propane generators as well as low-emissions propane-powered forklifts that are ideal for indoor or outdoor use at industrial sites, including distribution centers, manufacturing plants, warehouses, and more.
- Landscaping businesses use propane to keep their equipment, including commercial mowers, running smoothly for the duration of a job, with fewer emissions than other fuels allow.
