Propane usage for a range

Each gallon of propane has a certain amount of energy measured in British Thermal Units or BTUs. This unit of measurement describes the amount of energy needed to heat or cool one pound water by one degree Fahrenheit. Propane is extremely efficient, giving 91,500 BTUs per gallon per hour.

Propane ranges use approximately 30 to 50 gallons of propane per year. It is why we recommend, if you only use propane for cooking at home, that a 60-gallon propane tank suffices. If you use propane for more appliances, we recommend a larger tank.

Propane stoves generate heat more cheaply than electrical models, sometimes by as much as 30%. This will translate into noticeable savings on your monthly energy bill, depending on how often you cook.

Other benefits of cooking on a propane range

There are many reasons why cooking on a gas range is the preferred method for virtually all professional chefs. Not only does propane save you money, but its ability to heat up and cool down a stove quickly is one of the reasons it’s so loved by people who love to cook!

The temperature control of a propane appliance is much more specific than with electric appliances. With electricity, you are heating up a metal coil that takes time to cool down once you’ve turned it off. However, heat dissipates almost instantly when your stove is propane-powered because there is no longer a flame.

You can also take cooking with propane outside with a propane BBQ grill. Our Tanks to You bottle exchange delivers full propane cylinders to your home and takes away the empty ones.
