Gas Grills & Outdoor Kitchens
Propane-fueled grills offer greater convenience than their charcoal counterparts, and they are friendly to the environment. Lighter fluid, a well-known accomplice to the charcoal grill, contributes to the smog that hovers over many Texas cities. Self-lighting and bag-light charcoal also produce high levels of emissions. A propane gas grill is a clean air alternative.
Additionally, it takes about 20 minutes for the average charcoal grill to heat up, whereas it only takes about half that time to heat up a propane grill—so you can go from ‘heat up’ to ‘eat up’ in less than half an hour with propane!
If you aren’t convinced yet that gas grills are a better alternative, Good Housekeeping calculates the average annual fuel cost is $37 for charcoal and only $19 for propane gas grills. So this summer, make the convenient, environmentally conscious, economical decision to choose propane—and get grilling!

When it comes to seeing your way around the backyard grill at night, propane is a sustainable alternative to electric outdoor lighting. Some newer models of propane-fueled lighting equipment are finished with light sensors that shut off during the day, eliminating waste and increasing your savings.
Gas-Fired Pool Heaters
Propane is great for heating swimming pools, hot tubs, and spas. It’s faster and more economical than electricity. A propane-heated spa can save about $56 per year compared to electricity. And you can turn on a propane spa heater about 30 minutes before use to bring the spa to a comfortable temperature. Conversely, electrically heated spas must be kept on constantly because the water takes much longer to warm up.
