Top Appliances for a Propane-Powered Summer
Summer’s here (officially, June 22nd) and we’re ready to help you make the most of your backyard through the power of propane. With our top appliance picks below, you can turn your backyard situation into the ultimate summer destination.
Outdoor kitchen. If you love cooking but wish you could keep the mess and lingering smells out of your house, consider investing in an outdoor kitchen. Powering your outdoor kitchen with propane gives you better temperature control than electric – which means you’ll make tastier home-cooked meals outside than you would with an indoor electric oven.
Lighting. For backyard lighting, nothing beats propane. The dancing, flickering flame of a propane lamp post gives your yard an old-world charm that’s perfect for summer. And unlike gas-powered lighting, there’s no unsightly gas line to ruin the ambience.
Mosquito traps. We’re almost 20 years into the new millennium – it’s time to modernize your approach to slaying those pesky skeeters. Ditch the ancient bug sprays and ineffective repellent candles, and pick up a propane mosquito trap. It’ll protect your entire yard from those unwanted pests, and do it noise-free and odor-free.
Fire pit. We’ll just say it: Fire pits are cool. And with so many uses and designs – from freestanding to dugout, metal to stone – you’ll definitely find a pit that fits your style and budget. Even better, propane fire pits are easier to use than wood-burning pits, and you won’t have to deal with the messy, ashy aftermath of burnt wood.
Pool heater. For your pool, warm up to the idea of a propane pool heater. Propane is more energy-rich than natural gas, so you’ll use less to heat your pool. And if you’re concerned about the environment, propane is a more eco-friendly choice. Not only will you save energy, you’ll reduce your home’s carbon footprint.
Outdoor shower. An outdoor shower is a great way for pool swimmers to clean off the chlorine without tracking water through your home. And when you power your outdoor shower with a tankless propane water heater, you’ll get over 200 gallons of hot water per hour.
Patio heater. Extend your home’s patio season with a propane patio heater! They come in all shapes and sizes, as freestanding or wall-mounted units. Some even include thermostats, blowers, or both. And unlike electric-powered patio heaters, propane-powered heaters will even work if there’s a power outage – while producing fewer greenhouse gases than their fuel oil counterparts.
