If you would like to utilize propane around your home, there are several options you may not have thought of. While many people think of only home heating, when they think of propane, there are actually many options for how to use propane around your house.
If you already use propane for heating, and would like to incorporate it in other areas of your house, there are certainly a variety of ways to do that. Consider the following uses for propane around your house:
After home heating, probably the next most common use of propane in the home that you might think of is in the kitchen, specifically for cooking. If you already have a gas line to your kitchen stove area, you can purchase a propane range and easily hook it up. If not, you can install a gas line if you are hoping to incorporate more propane appliances into your kitchen.
Another kitchen appliance that can run on propane is a propane refrigerator. While you may not have thought of this particular appliance in regards to it running on propane, in the same way as a propane range, as long as you can run a gas line and the appliance is one specifically made to run on propane, you can certainly install a propane refrigerator in your kitchen.
Similar to a propane refrigerator, you can also run a line for a propane freezer. If you find that you need an extra freezer in your basement or other storage area to use as a deep freeze, this is another appliance that can potentially run on propane. With all of these extra appliances being converted to propane, be sure to keep an eye on your tanks’ levels and schedule your propane delivery as needed.
Heading into the laundry room, consider the appliances you use there. Similar to kitchen appliances, as long as you are able to run the gas line and the appliance is specifically made for propane, you can get yourself a propane washer.
While you are in the laundry room, you will need to make it a pair and get yourself a propane dryer. If your goal is to convert as many appliances as possible to propane throughout your home, the kitchen and the laundry room are certainly good places to start.
Furnaces and Central Heaters
If you are considering other ways to add propane use to your home, you probably already have the infrastructure set up and have propane as your home’s heating fuel. Since the main use for propane in the home is generally thought of as heat, it makes sense that furnaces and central heaters can run on propane.
Another heating appliance that can run on propane is your water heater. So if you already have propane heating your home and want to expand that to also heating your water, you can get a propane hot water heater.
If you like the ambiance of a fire, but don’t want to deal with actual fire wood, consider converting to a propane fireplace. This is another extra way to use propane in your home and add a little luxury at the same time.
There are so many uses for propane in your home, and if you already have propane heating and tanks, you are already halfway there. Consider adding some propane appliances if you want to expand the use of propane in your home.
