Propane Can Help You Enjoy Your Backyard Beyond Grilling

Propane can improve your backyard’s fun factor in more ways than just assisting with your grilled meals.  Since most think of their grill cylinder when referring to propane for the backyard, let’s learn more about the many other ways it can assist you with your outdoor experience from PERC (Propane Education and Research Council):

Outdoor Kitchen Products: Propane gives you more ways to enjoy the outdoors. Why not add a propane grill and cooktop to an outdoor gourmet kitchen that really increases the enjoyment and value of your home? After all, safe, versatile propane appliances have long been a favorite of cooks, and propane grills are more environmentally friendly and safe than charcoal grills. Propane grills heat up and cool down quickly for efficient grilling and are easy to clean as well.

Lighting and Flame Effects: Propane lighting can increase the ambiance and utility of your outdoor living spaces by illuminating pool edges, patios, and dining areas, and letting you enjoy your yard long into the evening. And propane’s flame effects, including fire bowls and torches, can add drama and tropical flair to your pool or patio setting.

Patio Heater: A little chill in the air? Not on your patio. Spend more time outside under the warmth of a propane patio heater, which can be freestanding or wall-mounted. Look for premium models with a high Btu rating that can produce a wide heating zone. Patio heaters help extend your enjoyment outdoors by raising the temperature 10 to 30 degrees. For added safety, some freestanding heaters feature sensors that automatically switch off the flame when the unit is bumped or tilted.

Pool and Spa Heater: Propane pool heaters can produce up to 450,000 Btu of heat, warming your pool and spa much more quickly than electric heat pumps or solar heaters, which will fail when the weather is too cool or skies are cloudy. If you’re looking to heat an existing pool, consider the fact that propane heaters are much easier to install than other options — especially solar heaters, which need just the right placement to work effectively.

Mosquito Trap: How in the world does a machine use propane to catch mosquitoes? By pretending to be you. These ingenious devices turn propane into carbon dioxide, the same gas that attracts mosquitoes to people and animals. When the insects get close to the trap, the unit vacuums them up to die inside. Because the propane never becomes a flame, these units can be safely placed near the house and in wooded areas where mosquitoes breed.

Comfort has moved outdoors as more and more homeowners are discovering the joys of outdoor living, and creating comfortable spaces powered by propane. With its extreme versatility and portable nature, propane gas can power just about any outside appliance and luxury — from fireplaces and grills, to hot tubs and pools, to fully-outfitted outdoor kitchens. Whatever your dreams for outdoor living, propane can help you bring them to life. For comfort and service you can count on, choose AmeriGas as your propane provider.
