Propane or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) is a gas normally compressed and stored as a liquid. It is nontoxic, colorless, and virtually odorless. An identifying odor is added so it can be detected. Propane is commonly used for space heating, water heating, and cooking in a household. For businesses, it’s used as fuel for engine applications such as forklifts, farm irrigation engines, fleet vehicles, and buses, however, its applications are rapidly growing due to new technology developments. Propane is the 3rd most widely used energy source in the United States by the number of households, behind only electricity and natural gas. However, cleaner and renewable energy, like propane, powers decarbonization.

As the most widely-sold and purchased propane grade in the USA, it has earned its reputation as the pinnacle of consumer propane. When you choose Heller's Gas, you're ensuring that you experience unmatched performance, efficiency, and safety in every use. HD-5 propane consists of: Minimum of 90% propane Maximum of 5% propylene Other gases constitute the remainder (iso-butane, butane, methane, etc.)
Propane can drastically reduce your home’s monthly energy bills. When it comes to businesses, propane not only makes your business greener, it also can reduce fuel costs from 30-50%.
One fuel source can power just about every appliance in your home. Propane fuels your furnace, heats up your stove, laundry dryer and hot water heater. You can also heat your pool, and outdoor grill. In addition, with well-maintained equipment, you’ll burn propane with up to 95% efficiency. The best you could hope to get with fuel oil is about 85% to 90% efficiency.
Propane is inexpensive compared to home heating oil, electricity and other forms of energy, when comparing price to thermal output.
Burning propane produces less particulate matter, and significantly less volatile organic compounds including carcinogens. In addition, when it’s exposed to air, it turns into a gas, so propane will not pollute soil or groundwater if it spills.
