Is all propane created the same?

Yes, but…

All propane is created equally as a by-product from two processes: Natural gas processing and petroleum refining. About 90 percent of the United States’ propane supply is produced here and ¾ of the remaining 10 percent comes from Canada and Mexico. So virtually all the propane used in the U.S. comes from North America. But is it all the same?

Yes, propane is propane. There are 3 different grades of propane: HD5 (consumer grade), HD10 (allows up to 10% propylene mixed) and commercial propane (not for vehicle applications). It’s kind of like grades of eggs – Small, medium, large, extra large and jumbo. They’re all eggs, they just weigh different amounts. The creation of different grades of propane happens during the refining process.

What’s really different about propane is the company who delivers it and it’s more than just price. What kind of services do they offer besides delivering propane? Can they service your gas furnace if something goes wrong? Do they offer payment plans and purchasing options? Will they have enough propane on hand in the event of an emergency to serve their customers?

We believe that one of the most important features of great propane is where they operate.
