LizzieWeakley posted a blog entry in Lizzie Weakley's Green BlogRunning a business means making a lot of important decisions on a daily basis. However, one thing many business owners tend to not think about is how they’re heating their office. One choice that has many benefits that you should certainly consider during the colder months of the year is heating your office with propane. It Helps the Environment When people think of eco-friendly fuel sources, propane does not usually come to mind. However, it is a green alternative fuel recognized by the government. One reason why is because it escapes as a gas and doesn’t leave any physical residue as pollution. Propane exhaust also creates 70 percent less smog and hydrocarbons than burning gasoline does. It is far less toxic than other carbon based fuels. It’s Economical Another great thing about using propane to heat your office is that it can help slash your overhead expenses. You should be aware that propane is far cheaper when used to heat a building than electricity is. In fact, the cost savings can be as much as 50 percent. Propane water heaters are a much better deal than electric. You can also insure that you save even more money by wrapping your propane water heater in a Powerblanket. This added insulation will prevent heat loss and increase the efficiency of your heating system. It’s Convenient One great thing about propane is that it does not require a lot of maintenance. One propane tank can last for as long as 40 years. It’s a long term solution, and the investment can begin to pay off quite decently versus other more expensive heating options. It’s Dependable Once you install your propane powered heating system into your office, it should provide consistent heat for decades. Other heating sources may not be as dependable. For example, if you depend on electricity to heat your office, you could be prone to losing heat during power outages. Power outages, of course, are common in the winter when harsh weather destroys power lines. With a propane tank, your office will still be heated even during an outage. It’s dependable and provides some safety for your employees if an outage were to occur. There are many benefits to using propane to heat your office during cold winter months. It’s cheap, environmentally friendly, convenient and dependable energy. If you are moving to a new office, consider installing a propane tank to provide the energy you need. Converting your current heating system to propane may be an excellent idea as well.
