Sure, you can use propane to run your clothes dryer, heat your water, warm your home and help you cook dinner.

But did you know all the things propane can do for you outside your Tennessee home?

In warmer weather, we all want to get outdoors and enjoy our yard with family and friends. Propane can make the experience even better and make your outdoor season last longer.

Propane fuels a cookout

Propane grills are the most common grills owned in the United States. There are lots of reasons why.

First, it’s quicker and easier than charcoal. In the time it takes to get out the charcoal, the lighter fluid, other accessories and finally get the grill fire started, your propane grill would already be grilling your burgers.

And, when you’re done, all you have to do is turn off the grill, shut off the propane and clean the grate. No waiting for coal embers to cool or dealing with soot and ashes. Second, propane grills offer more precise control for better grilling results.

Outdoor cooking with propane isn’t limited to grills. Propane can also fuel an outdoor fryer for an amazing Thanksgiving fried turkey dinner.

Gather around and feel cozy with propane

Of course, there’s more to outdoor living and entertaining than grilling.

If you love gathering around a fire pit on a cool night, toasting marshmallows for s’mores or enjoying a glass of wine with friends, propane can make that experience even better. With a fire pit, you get a real fire and real heat with propane with a flip of a switch. No messing with firewood or waiting for it to ignite. And once you’re done, just turn it off and go inside with no worries.

If you have a pool or a spa tub, propane heating can make a swim or a soak enjoyable all year round. Propane also lets you stay outside longer with propane-powered patio heaters that can be freestanding or mounted to a wall. And propane-powered mosquito traps can keep pests at bay.

Propane lights up your world

Before electricity became widely used, gas was the common source for both indoor and outdoor lighting in homes. With propane, you can get that classic warm light to make your patio and pathways glow. In most cases, it’s cheaper than electricity and works even when the power is out.

Go on the road with propane

Propane isn’t just for home. It can make your vacations easier and more comfortable.

If you love camping trips with friends and family, propane heaters can help keep you warm when the nights get chilly. Bring along your propane turkey fryer, which can be used for so much more than turkey! Do a seafood boil, make corn on the cob, or deep-fry that fish you just caught.

Do you have an RV? Propane can make your travels more comfortable. You can use propane to heat or cool your RV at your campsite, to run your refrigerator, to power your stove and oven, and to heat water for bathing.

And with propane tank exchange sites nearby, it’s easy to stay fueled up with propane—your affordable, versatile and clean-burning energy source.
