Improve Your Outdoor Experience with Propane

Nothing beats summer in New England—warm air, cool breezes, and afternoon gatherings in the yard with family and friends that extend well into the evening…what’s not to love about warm weather in the North? The more important question is whether you’ve made your backyard ready for summer. Make this the year you become the envy of your neighborhood—create the perfect outdoor living space by installing propane-fired appliances that bring all the creature comforts of your indoor living space outdoors.

Propane’s Outdoor Versatility

When thinking of propane for outdoor use, many of us immediately think of gas grills. Although that is the most common household use for propane outdoors, there are many other great ways you can use this versatile gas for your outdoor living space. Consider using propane for some of these other propane appliances.

Outdoor Propane Uses

  • Gas grills

Charcoal cooking is convenient, but how often have you taken a bite out of a burger that tastes like char? With propane, you’ll get prime-tasting food without a mess to clean up.

  • Outdoor burners

Ready to try something fresher than grilling? Take your cooking skills up a notch with a propane-fired outdoor burner. Make a batch of country-fried chicken or beer-battered cod without the heavy oil smell lingering in your house for a week, or throw a memorable clambake that doesn’t take all afternoon to “bake”. You could even transform your burner into a smoker—smoked salmon and bluefish brunch, anyone? Come on—give it a try!

  • Patio heaters

Keep cozy all season long! These high-efficiency heaters provide consistent heating that keeps your backyard space warm, comfortable, and inviting when the evening breeze kicks in. Be forewarned–your guests may never want to leave!

  • Fireplaces and fire pits

Did you know people are trading in their tents and sleeping bags and opting to go “glamping” (glamourous camping) instead? Why not turn your backyard into your own personal glamping hub? Break out the s’mores and campfire songs without dealing with smoke in your eyes and smelling like a burnt log by night’s end. Propane-fueled fireplaces and fire pits provide all the joys of camping without the mess and fuss of spending a night in the woods.

  • Pools and hot tubs

It doesn’t matter how high the temperature gets outside—no one likes jumping into a cold pool. Make sure you’ve heated the water in your pool or hot tub above heart-stopping temperatures with a propane heater. Propane heaters, which are less expensive than their electric counterparts, reach and maintain the desired water temperature faster and more efficiently.
