Propane prices have come down as energy production in the United States has surged, and people are using this highly versatile fuel in more ways around their homes. Here are 12 great things you can do with propane, including some you might not have considered.

1. Space heating: Propane can be your primary heating fuel, powering an advanced gas furnace or boiler that uses electronic controls to achieve high efficiency and superior comfort.
2. Water heating: A propane-fired hot water heater can provide more consistent hot water at a lower cost than many electric water heaters can.
3. Indoor cooking: Many professional chefs prefer the speed and versatility of gas cooking, and propane is an excellent fuel for both stovetops and ovens.
4. Outdoor cooking: Propane gas grills are widely used, but did you know you could install an outdoor grill or stove that is piped to a large propane tank elsewhere on the property and stop relying on portable propane tanks?
5. Backup power: Propane is a great fuel for backup generators that can keep your appliances running during a power outage.
6. Laundry: A propane-fired clothes dryer is a more cost effective alternative to an electric dryer.
7. Pool heating: A propane pool heater warms your pool quickly and keeps it at the right temperature. 
8. Hot tubs and spas: Everybody loves hot tubs, and propane is the ideal fuel for a hot tub that soaks the chill out of your bones on a cold winter day.
9. Patio heating: A patio heater fired by propane can radiate pleasing warmth and make a patio comfortable for a few extra months every year.
10. Gas logs: A propane gas log set can make a fireplace easier to use and more environmentally friendly, with instantaneous lighting and no need to haul wood or clean up ashes.
11. Fire pits: A propane fire pit is a great spot for gathering outdoors on a cool evening. It's perfect for roasting marshmallows too.
12. Outdoor lighting: Propane lamps and torches can bring added excitement and charm to your yard, walkways or pool area.
