Propane Service in Windham and Nearby Communities

PitStop Fuels has a history of reliable propane services

Propane delivery in greater Portland has never come with more quality of service and peace of mind than when you get your propane from PitStop Fuels.

Many residents around southern Maine depend on propane to keep their homes warm, safe and comfortable while enhancing their quality of life both indoors, and out.

What makes propane a good choice for your home? Among other benefits, reliability and versatility stand out.

Propane is clean-burning. Propane emits fewer greenhouse gases than other fuel sources. It also won’t harm water, soil or air in the rare event of a propane leak. Those are two reasons propane is named a clean fuel under the 1990 update of the Clean Air Act.

Propane makes good fiscal sense. Propane appliances like heaters and fireplaces are around 40% to 60% less expensive to operate than their electricity-powered counterparts. Propane equipment such as furnaces, boilers and water heaters also last much longer than equipment that runs on oil or electricity. Heating with propane is more energy efficient too, which means you can save money on your heating costs year-round.

Propane is a domestic fuel source. Around 90% of America’s propane supply is generated right here in the United States, and is primarily derived from the processing of natural gas.

But those are just the first of the reasons you should look into propane for your home!

Why propane for home use?

Propane offers efficiency while providing comfort at your southern Maine home better and in more ways than other fuel sources can.

  • With today’s propane furnaces and boilers, you can get efficiency ratings around 90% or higher. You also get even, comfortable heating, so you don’t have to raise the thermostat as often.
  • Propane water heaters are not only more energy efficient than electric water heaters, they cost less to operate and have a longer shelf life.
  • A propane range, oven or cooktop gives you precise temperature control in an instant, which helps you improve the quality of whatever you’re cooking. That control is something you’ll never get from an electric stove.
  • Laundry dries faster with a propane clothes dryer than with an electric dryer. Propane dryers are also more energy efficient and produce fewer wrinkles.
  • There’s no need for firewood, or dealing with soot, smoke and ashes, when you get comfortable warmth from a propane fireplace or hearth.
  • Maine summers are made better with propane. Not only can it run your BBQ grill, it can run heaters for your pool and spa tub. Propane gives you all the comfort of a fire pit without the work or worry of wood. Propane patio and deck heaters let you enjoy your backyard longer.
  • Keep your home safe and comfortable during a power outage with a propane whole-house backup generator.
