What is Propane?

Propane—sometimes called liquefied petroleum gas or LPG—is a gas that is normally compressed and stored as a liquid. It’s nontoxic, colorless and virtually odorless (an identifying odor is added so it can be detected). Because of its versatility and efficiency, propane is used nationwide in over 40 million households as well as many businesses for water, space heating, cooking, outdoor living, clothes drying and backup power. Its applications are rapidly growing due to new technological developments.

Providing safe and dependable propane service to you and your family is essential to the Onsite team. Our service area includes parts of Lamoille, Chittenden, Franklin and Grand Isle counties in Vermont. Think of all the reasons you and your family love your home: game night in front of the fireplace, conversations around the dinner table, relaxing evenings on the patio—or simply curling up on the couch with a favorite blanket that is cozy and warm from the dryer. When you include propane appliances throughout your home, you can give your family even more reasons to love and enjoy your home. From greater temperature control when cooking meals to endless hot water to heated patios for extended outdoor living to even cozier heat on cold winter days. 

Did you know that almost all of the propane used in the United States is produced domestically? This means propane is a highly reliable energy source. Propane is also the most universal of residential fuels, having the ability to power a wide range of appliances from one fuel source. Propane is also eco-friendly. When utilized, it meets all clean air energy standards put forth by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency).

Whether you depend on propane to fuel your home or your business Onsite has you covered.

Now you know, Propane is:

  • Energy-Efficient

  • Highly Versatile

Propane is efficient, cost-effective, safe and reliable energy source. When you choose propane for your home or business, you are actively doing your part to conserve and protect our environment.

It is everyone’s responsibility to conserve and protect the Earth’s resources so that future generations can live clean, safe and healthy lives. Propane is one of the world’s leading alternative fuels, as qualified under the Clean Air Act Amendments and the National Policy Act.

As a recognized “green” fuel, propane produces 60 to 70 percent fewer hydrocarbons than comparable fuel sources and as much as 60 percent less carbon monoxide as compared to gasoline.
