Propane fuel is versatile, efficient and clean. Dependable Energy is the local choice for all things propane in greater Prospect, Connecticut.
Heating your home with propane is a great option given today’s technology in residential boilers and furnaces. We install all types of systems, most of which offer extremely high-efficiency conversion of fuel to heat. Generally we install a 500 or 1,000 gallon propane tank for home heating. These tanks can be installed underground or aboveground. If you prefer to have your tanks close to your house, we can install a series of smaller tanks adjacent to your dwelling. Propane heating systems generally require less maintenance than oil-fired systems. Also, high efficiency heating systems are much more compact than older style boilers and furnaces. They can free up space in your basement, including eliminating your fuel oil tank in the basement. Call us ASAP to learn more about heating with propane.
Backup generators are a great way to protect yourself from potential power outages from the utility electrical providers. If you have a well pump and septic system, a standby generator can help get you through the power outages without concern. Standby generators generally start once a week to test themselves and to make sure it’s ready if the power goes out. An electrician wires up your system so that if the power goes out, you’ll have power back within seconds. We feel propane backup generators are the best option because the fuel can stay in your tank for months, or years without concern of degradation. A whole-home generator will keep your boiler or furnace running, your refrigerator going, your air conditioning system working, and any other electric appliances your home and family depends on.
We often take hot water for granted. We use it to cook, clean our dishes, laundry, showers, baths and much more. Propane is the best choice for heating your water because of the options. If you need a large tank, we can install one. Today, more folks are installing on-demand water heaters because it decreases your energy consumption, saves space, and delivers unlimited hot water when sized and installed properly. Many people you can’t install one with well water, but that isn’t true. Sometimes it may make sense to add filtration or treatment, but it definitely can be done.
On-demand water heaters provide endless hot water and only heat the water when you need it. There’s no reason to keep 80 gallons of water hot throughout the work/school day when no one’s home. Nor should you heat your water all night while everyone’s asleep. Heat your water when you need it, and only then with an on-demand water heater from Dependable Energy.
