Why propane is a preferred choice

Whether it's a new heating system or an upgrade, propane is a preferred choice for ease of installation, energy efficiency, and long-term comfort. When you switch to propane with Dead River Company, you’re getting trusted, time-tested, full-service expertise.


Propane furnaces have a rating of 90-98% for efficiency—even during the coldest months.

Pricing Stability

Historically, propane pricing is more stable than other energy sources.


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

Green Rating

Propane heating systems emit up to 22% less greenhouse gas emissions than other heating systems.

Low Maintenance

Propane systems take up significantly less space than other heating options and because they are clean burning, require less maintenance.

Stay powered with propane

Whether you're relaxing by a toasty fire, cooking up a favorite recipe for guests, or keeping your family cozy during the winter, Dead River Company’s propane services 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 a 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 kitchens, pools, hot tubs, standby generators 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.

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.

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.
