Compared to an electric water heater, an LPG water heater conserves enough energy and increases energy efficiency sufficiently to reduce a family’s energy cost by approximately $75 to $300 a year. Typical energy savings can range from $100 to $170 a year or $1,100 to $1,870 over the expected, 11-year life of the LPG water heater.
Propane water heaters also offer substantial air quality benefits. Compared to a standard electric water heater with a .93 energy efficiency factor, a propane water heater with a .58 energy efficiency factor reduces NOx emissions by approximately 90 percent, CO emissions by approximately 70 percent, sulfur dioxide by 99 percent, and carbon dioxide by approximately 60 percent.
When used for space heating, propane’s total fuel-cycle emissions of urban air pollutants and greenhouse gases are second to only natural gas, according to DeLucchi (1999). Electricity has fuel-cycle emissions that are 2 to 4 times higher than those for natural gas or LPG, according to this analysis.

Converting small utility engines like lawnmowers to use propane instead of gasoline can reduce emissions of ozone precursors by one-third and increase fuel economy by 14 percent (Cotton, 1992).
Compared to diesel fuel-powered forklifts, LPG forklifts can reduce emissions of indoor and urban air pollutants, especially emissions of particulate matter. The urban air quality benefits of propane are similar to those of CNG - generally considered to be the cleanest of fossil fuel alternatives (DeLucchi, 1999).
Benefits of highway vehicles
Low reactivity - Propane exhaust creates 60-70 percent less smog than the hydrocarbons in gasoline exhaust, according to studies by the Southwest Research Institute.
Low air toxins - compared to gasoline, propane cuts emissions of toxins and carcinogens like benzene and toluene by up to 96 percent, according to studies conducted by the Southwest Research Institute.
Ground and surface water safe - Propane is nontoxic and any spills vaporize rather than soaking into soil or water.
Low greenhouse gas emissions - Propane has the best greenhouse gas emissions performance of any fossil transportation fuel when considering emissions from the complete fuel cycle of production, distribution, and combustion. Propane offers significant greenhouse benefits compared to gasoline in light-duty vehicles and diesel fuel in heavy-duty vehicles.
