What Is Propane?
Propane is primarily a byproduct of domestic natural gas processing. It can also be a byproduct of petroleum refining. Also referred to as LPG (liquified petroleum gas), propane is stored and compressed as a liquid.

Benefits of Using Propane
Propane is one of the cleanest burning fossil fuels. When burned, it produces barely any sulfur oxides, particulate matter, or mercury emissions. It is an approved, clean fuel listed in the 1990 Clean Air Act and the Energy Policy Act of 1992. It's nontoxic and nonpoisonous, so propane doesn’t contaminate groundwater or soil if it leaks.
Propane tanks include many built-in safety features, such as carbon steel construction, puncture resistance, and built-in pressure maintenance valves. Although propane is naturally odorless, a harmless chemical called Mercaptan is added in the processing to give it a distinctive “rotten egg” smell to help detect leaks.
Propane is generally a less expensive fuel option per gallon than other fuels. Savings are also evident in many of the appliances it fuels. For example, a propane clothes dryer gets hot more quickly heats clothes more evenly, resulting in lower operating costs and less wear and tear on clothes. Also, propane water heaters typically recover water twice as quickly as electric models, yet they cost up to 30% less to operate.
Because propane burns clean, propane heating equipment requires less maintenance and may last longer than other fuel equipment.
Between 80-90% of propane consumed in the United States is produced domestically. That means if you power your home with propane, each time you refill your tank you’re supporting the U.S. economy.
What Can Propane Be Used For?
Propane For Homes
Propane is a very versatile fuel. It can be used to heat homes and power many appliances, including gas fireplaces, stovetops, ovens, generators, clothes dryers, and more. In addition, many use propane for lighting, portable or built-in gas grills, fire pits, pool heaters, and patio heaters to extend their outdoor living season.
Propane For Businesses
When it comes to commercial application, propane is even more versatile. The uses are virtually limitless, from powering construction, fueling fleets, space heating, restaurant cooking, transportation vehicles, agriculture equipment, mining, and generators. Propane is widely used in office spaces, retail, schools, hospitals and medical buildings, warehouses, hotels, laundromats, and more!
Propane Tank Sizes
Different propane uses require different-sized propane tanks to give you the appropriate storage for your needs. Tank sizes range from 20-lb portable tanks up to 1,000-gallon tanks. Let Levco help you determine what’s right for your home and business based on what you’ll use propane for in your home or business.
Propane is one of the safest fuels available. And while propane systems and tanks feature many built-in safety measures, home and business owners must also follow safety guidelines. For example, while propane emits an odor when there is a leak if you smell it, you need to turn off the tank and call your provider. Trust Levco to be a reliable partner in keeping your propane deliveries safe as well as keeping you informed of all the important safety tips.
