Why is propane a leading choice for fuel?

It’s clean, reliable, and versatile – and it’s the smart choice for New England homes. Enjoy peace of mind with our on-time deliveries, unmatched service and always-there guarantee.

Environmentally Friendly

Propane emits less greenhouse gas emissions than other preferred energy sources.

Energy Efficient

Propane systems have an AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) of up to 95% efficiency.

Readily Available

North America produces enough propane to exceed domestic demand.

Low Maintenance

Propane systems take up less space than other heating options and require less maintenance.

Highly Versatile

Beyond your furnace or boiler, propane fuels cooking, heating water, outdoor living, and more.

Stay powered with propane

Whether you're relaxing by a toasty fire, creating a favorite recipe for guests, or keeping your family cozy during the winter, we have you covered.

Whole-Home Heating

Propane is an efficient and reliable energy source for heating your entire house– be that a furnace with a network of ducts for forced-air heat or a boiler system offering baseboard, radiator, or radiant floor heating.

Water Heaters

Tankless propane water heaters are a popular option, and for good reason: they heat water only when needed, so during periods of inactivity, they use zero propane and produce zero emissions, making them efficient and eco-friendly.


Most appliances in and around your home can be powered with propane– and it's always an efficient and reliable option to power everything from kitchen stoves to clothes dryers, outdoor grills, fire pits, hot tubs, and beyond.


Propane-fueled fireplaces and log inserts heat quickly using radiant or convective heat transfer equipped with an electric starter–including remote-controlled options–for an easy and safe start-up without the hassle of dealing with burning embers.

We put the pro in propane

In the middle of cold New England winters, there’s nothing like the peace of mind that comes from getting your propane delivered by the pros — effortlessly and reliably. After decades of being in the fuel business, Dead River Company has earned a reputation for providing prompt, professional propane delivery service.

Renewable propane is the future

Conventional propane has long been considered a greener alternative to other energy sources, and renewable propane takes that green rating a step further. Renewable propane is a non-fossil fuel composed of 100% renewable materials—for a cleaner-burning future.

I built my first home last year, and every single interaction I've had with a Dead River Company representative in person and on the phone since contacting you for propane installation has been top notch.

Today I had a gas range and propane tank installed by one of your technicians. The technician has been knowledgeable, helpful, and courteous. You won't find a better company for quick, reliable service. It is a pleasure to do business with them! Cheers,

A Few Words From Our Customers

I had a lot of questions about the cost and process for transitioning from one propane supplier to another, replacing an aged tank, and a pre-buy contract. Every interaction, from management to office staff to technician, was polite, informed, and productive.
