Propane is primarily used for residential purposes such as air conditioning, cooking, heating water, and refrigerating foods, lighting, dry clothes, and fueling fireplaces. Houses that utilize propane as main energy sources usually have large propane tanks outside of their house holding 500 and 1000 gallons of liquid fuel.
The industrial sector usually utilizes propane-driven fleet vehicles and forklifts. Industries also utilize propane for the purpose of vulcanizing, soldering and other processes that require a heat source. Propane is also a valuable feedstock for the chemical industry; nearly half of the propane used today is as a raw material for making plastic bags, rubber, nylon, pharmaceuticals, and other products. Millions of commercial establishments, including hotels and restaurants, depend on propane for heating, cooling, and other uses.
Farmers use propane fueled equipment to dry crops, control pests, and operate a variety of farm equipment.
