Why Propane is the Better Choice
Eastern serves thousands of customers from Maine to Cape Cod who are using propane to make their lives more comfortable. Of course, that’s not surprising. After all, the advantages of propane and the outstanding customer service at Eastern are a tough combination to beat.
Propane hearth products can heat larger areas, reducing the reliance on furnaces and increasing your cost savings. Wood burning fireplaces can lose as much as 90% of the heat they generate while propane fireplaces and log sets are up 100% efficient. Plus, they can be turned on or off with a switch or remote so you don’t have to worry about remaining wood embers.
Propane is also clean burning and does not emit noxious fumes or black smoke into the air. So you can also forget the mess and labor involved in maintaining a wood-burning stove or fireplace. Instead, sit back and enjoy the ambiance. Hmmm…
Option A. Venture into the cold to gather the wood that you painfully spent the last hours of summer splitting or at least stacking, go to the basement to scrounge up kindling, scour the house for matches and paper, wait 30 minutes for the fire to throw heat and THEN clean up the mess on the floor!
Option B. Click a remote.
Propane is reliable and works when and where other energy sources don’t. This is especially important to our customers in remote locations prone to power outages or away from natural gas mains.
In many cases, propane can offer significant savings over other energy alternatives. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that propane fireplaces cost 30% to 60% less per hour than wood-burning fireplaces.
