Providing Propane to Our Metro Atlanta Business Community
Written on: June 5, 2023
Why are so many businesses turning to propane?
Are you aware of why a big variety of businesses use propane to help their commercial operation succeed? In fact, not only does propane make a difference for a wide range of industries – it also has an impressive list of versatile uses. Read on to learn more about all the ways propane can help your commercial endeavor grow and thrive.
Why propane? It’s efficient – meaning it keeps costs down!
Propane appliances operate more efficiently than electric appliances, which is good for your budget and your bottom line. That’s because modern propane heating systems are capable of up to 98% efficiency, allowing propane appliances to get the job done in less time, using warmer heat.
What types of Atlanta businesses use propane?
No matter what industry you’re in, using propane will keep your energy costs down, in a way that electric appliances just can’t compete.
- Commercial warehouses and factories use propane as an economical source of heat.
- Forklift operations — Propane’s low, nontoxic emissions also make it good for indoor forklifts, torches, and welders.
- Construction and agricultural industries love propane because it’s portable, too – which is a big plus for those industries as well as others. Propane, also, is a great choice to use in irrigation machines.
- Commercial kitchens and the hospitality industry use propane to efficiently and affordably operate their many appliances, including cookers and laundry equipment.
Businesses use propane in many ways
Commercial projects across Atlanta may benefit from our industrial propane services, such as the following:
- Temporary heat — Keep your projects streamlined, safe and on-schedule with quality temporary heat you can count on. Prevent plumbing disasters and frozen pipes and stay on schedule without complications. If it’s too cool, drying and curing time for paint can last longer, and some paints may become difficult to apply. The quality of plaster and stucco may also be compromised without the temporary heat you need on site.
- Propane forklifts — When compared with electric-powered forklifts, propane-powered models come out on top. They can run around the clock, work better on inclines, and push substantial loads at full capacity for longer. Perhaps most importantly, they are faster. Electric forklifts reach 8 to 9 miles per hour, whereas the range of propane forklifts is 9.5 to 10.5 mph. And when you need to refuel a propane forklift, all you must do is replace the empty cylinder with a full one. No charging delays, or reliance on the power grid.
- Autogas — Whether you’re looking to fuel fleet vehicles, school buses or landscaping equipment, autogas is a cleaner way to go than gasoline or diesel — and it costs less per gallon. Plus, fleet vehicles that use autogas last longer and don’t need as much maintenance.
- Bulk fuel — From farms–to–manufacturing plants–to–hospitality businesses, Metro Atlanta companies turn to Georgia Gas Distributors as their source for safe, dependable bulk fuel delivery and service.
- Agricultural operations use bulk fuel for crop drying and for heating barns, poultry houses and greenhouses.
- Commercial kitchens and restaurants of all sizes put bulk fuel to work on their high-powered cooktops, broilers, water heaters, deep fryers, ovens, and indoor and outdoor grills. Chefs need precision and flexibility in temperature control to prepare memorable meals that make their restaurants true destinations.
- Commercial laundry services for hotels turn to bulk fuel to keep sheets, towels, napkins and tablecloths clean and readily available—with minimal wrinkles.
