New to Propane? Here's a Guide for Homeowners

Posted on Tue, Mar 23, 2021 @ 05:12 PM

According to real estate news, 2020 saw a trend for homeowners to move out of larger towns and cities and relocate to a rural community. This was partially because of so many companies transitioning to a remote workforce, where all that was needed was a quiet space and an internet connection for office workers to complete their work. Urban homeowners saw an opportunity to pull up stakes and settle into a year-round rural retreat with all the associated benefits of country living.

Housing in rural or even remote areas, is quite different than in cities - especially when it comes to energy.

Many communities in central Ontario, especially smaller villages, do not have access to natural gas and so homes are either heated by electricity, oil, or propane.

Home buyers often calculate into the purchase price how much it would cost to renovate and upgrade a property to forced air propane with central air conditioning.  Cost savings, efficiency, and environmental benefits are often cited as the reason for the preference for propane.

If you are new to propane as an energy source for your home, we've put together some helpful information in the form of a complimentary downloadable guide (PDF).

Get the Benefits of Remote Monitoring for Your Propane Tank

Posted on Thu, Oct 01, 2020 @ 04:03 PM

Installing propane service at a cottage or residential property in central Ontario? Congratulations! Propane is an excellent fuel for a rural property.

As one of the most environmentally-friendly and cost-effective energy sources on the market, the use of propane will help your household or cottage cut down its carbon footprint and help you save a significant amount of money on your utility bills each month.

One of the biggest benefits of propane, however, is how easy it is to transport. That means bulk propane can be delivered directly to your door and put in your tank by an expert - all with minimal effort on your behalf.

While there are a number of propane delivery options, including will call and timed delivery, the best option to ensure you keep your home or cottage properly powered is through propane tank monitoring.
