How much do you know about the gas that heats your home? Learn more with these propane facts from Revere Gas!

  • Propane is a “clean” alternative fuel that doesn’t contaminate soil or aquifers. 
  • Propane as we know it has been around since 1910 thanks to Dr. Walter O. Snelling, who isolated the vapors emitted by the gasoline of the Ford Model T.
  • Propane makes “off-grid” living easy and comfortable.
  • A high efficiency propane furnace can last for up to 20 years.
  • Propane is also known as “liquified petroleum gas.”
  • Most propane is sourced right here in the U.S.
  • Risk of death due to a propane storage or transportation accident is 1 in 37,000,000 (National Propane Gas Association). That’s less than the individual risk of being killed by lightning!
  • Propane storage tanks are painted with reflective paint for visibility and safety.
  • It is possible to convert a natural gas furnace to a propane system. Contact Revere to learn more.
  • Quality propane furnaces are rated between 90 and 98% efficient.
