Uses for Commercial Propane
Written on: December 5, 2022
Propane works for you!
Propane is popular amongst homeowners, but did you know that businesses and commercial enterprises see a huge benefit from using propane as well? Commercial warehouses and factories use propane as an economical source of heat, and propane’s low, nontoxic emissions also make it good for indoor forklifts, torches, and welders. It’s portable, too – which is a big plus for the construction and agricultural industries. Read on to learn more about all the ways propane can help your commercial endeavor succeed.
Why is propane good for business? It’s efficient!
Propane appliances operate more efficiently than electric appliances, which is good for your budget and your bottom line. Modern propane heating systems are capable of up to 98% efficiency. This allows propane water heaters, cooking ranges and clothes dryers to get the job done in less time, using warmer heat. Using propane will keep your energy costs down, in a way that electric appliances just can’t compete with.
How do businesses use propane?
There are many ways commercial operations can be improved by using propane. No matter what industry you’re in, your projects may benefit from:
- Temporary heat: Keep your projects streamlined, safe and on-schedule with quality temporary heat you can count on. Prevent plumbing disasters and frozen pipes, ensure that paint can cure properly, and spackle and joint compound will adhere to drywall, 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 be run around the clock and work better on inclines. Their ability to push substantial loads at full capacity lasts longer. Perhaps most importantly, they are faster. Electric forklifts reach 8 to 9 miles per hour, whereas the usual range of propane forklifts is 9.5 to 10.5 mph. And when you need to refuel a propane forklift, all you have to do is replace the empty cylinder with a full one. No charging delays, or reliance on the power grid.
- 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.
- Auto gas: 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.
