We have made great progress over the decades when it comes to protecting the environment. But we still face many challenges.
Our waters are under assault by trash, with two gigantic garbage islands in the Pacific Ocean. Deforestation around the world has caused problems with soil erosion and the loss of trees that convert carbon dioxide to oxygen. The threat of damage caused by climate change continues to loom.
It may seem overwhelming, but there are things individuals can do to make a difference. One is to use propane in your central or northern Michigan home. With reliable delivery from Coyne, you’ll keep your home warm, safe and comfortable with a clean-burning energy source.
Here are three ways propane is a good choice for protecting the environment.
Propane combustion produces less than half of the greenhouse-gas emissions made by electricity generation to produce the same amount of energy. Propane also contains less carbon than other fossil fuels such as heating oil, gasoline, diesel, kerosene and ethanol.
Reduced energy use leads to fewer greenhouse-gas emissions. Propane can do that for your home! Appliances that run on propane usually use much less energy than comparable electric appliances. For example, a propane tankless water heater can save you up to 50% on energy costs compared with a similar water heater that’s powered by electricity. A propane clothes dryer saves energy by getting laundry dry 25% faster than comparable electric dryers.
Propane is nontoxic and does not spill, pool or leave a residue in the rare event of a propane leak. It simply dissipates into the air. Propane also does not harm water, soil, air, aquatic life or plant life.
