    What is Propane Used For?

    Propane Tank

    Use your AmeriGas propane tank for more than the grill!

    From grilling to keeping those pesky mosquitos away, propane is a safe, clean and convenient way to fuel your day to day needs. Propane produces significantly less greenhouse gases, carbon monoxide and other pollutants than the most common energy sources - making it a safe alternative to use at home and around your family. Use propane to power your outdoor firepit and extend your patio season, or to power an alternative power source during inclimate weather. Propane is the leading choice for fueling backyard barbeques, tailgates, or family camping trips.

    Propane's versatility provides a solution to all of your needs, whether at home or on the go. Discover what propane is used for, and its benefits, by exploring some the common uses below and find your closest AmeriGas Tank Exchange location today!

      Grilling is the most common use of our AmeriGas tanks.

      This is by far the best way to cook up a great meal when the weather is nice. Propane grills release far less carbon monoxide, particulates, and soot than charcoal grills. Something to think about next time you are in search of a new grill!

    • Propane Generators

      Propane Generators

      Keep your electricity flowing and your food fresh in the refrigerator!

      In the event of a storm or electrical service disruption, a generator is no good without a source of fuel. Propane fueled generators are a more reliable temporary power source, as they are more likely to start in extreme weather conditions.

      Use propane to extend your outdoor patio season with a propane powered heater.

      Propane space heaters can be freestanding or wall-mounted and typically work even in an electrical outage. They also produce fewer greenhouse gases than space heaters using oil as fuel.
