For more than twenty-five years, Tiger Fuel has provided kerosene, propane and heating oil to Central Virginians for efficient, comfortable and safe home heating.
Propane provides reliable, clean, energy-saving, and cost-effective heat. In addition to being very safe and convenient to store, propane is also versatile enough to power a whole range of appliances, like stoves and water heaters. Many customers enjoy the savings and quick recovery time of propane-fired hot water heaters as compared to much less efficient electric heaters.
Heating oil is most often used to fire furnaces and hot water heaters, and kerosene is used for many "stove-type" room heaters. Your furnace or boiler manufacturer instructions will tell you which heating oil is the right one for your system. Heating oil can be conveniently stored on your property in either above-ground or underground storage tanks. With our degree of payment options and always-reliable delivery service, Tiger Fuel is your number one source for safe and efficient home heating oil.
Operating efficiency is propane's prime advantage. More than 70 percent of the energy value of electricity is lost in its generation and transmission process. In contrast, only seven percent of the energy value of propane is lost in its production and distribution. Fuel efficiency will vary with the efficiency of the appliances in your home. Compare the cost of propane versus electricity to do the same job in these four simple steps.
Check the price of propane in your area and insert the per gallon cost in the calculator below.
Compute your kilowatt hour (kwh) rate. To do this, divide your total electric bill by the number of kilowatt hours you used. Insert the figure into the second field in the calculator below.
Since we are assuming that propane is 80% efficient, it will take slightly more propane to do the same job. So the cost per gallon of propane is automatically multiplied by 1.25 by the calculator. Since electricity is considered to be 100% efficient at the appliance, the cost per kwh is unchanged.
Click the 'Calculate Totals' button. The results of the calculation are shown in the fields below the calculate button.
Now you can easily compare the cost of propane versus electricity to do the same job.
