No matter what stand we take on the big picture for global warming, energy conservation and similar worries, we must all agree that today’s American society is hugely energy dependent. Maybe our concerns should more about how long will our fuel supply last if we continue to use it up at current rates? This also raises questions relating to how much money are we prepared to pay to purchase our share of dwindling energy stocks?
Many Different Forms Of Energy
If we only look at the domestic use of energy in Manchester CT, there is the obvious use of gasoline and diesel fuels for our automobiles but, our homes also consume energy. The main domestic energy is electricity which we purchase from Power Companies who usually generate it by burning fossil fuels; or hydroelectric schemes; or nuclear power plants – our electricity bills are directly related to the cost of whatever fuels the Power Co uses.
We probably would not wish to remove all electricity from our homes but it could be good advice to investigate ways of paying less by decreasing our electricity consumption. Apart from avoiding wastage, lighting may be an impractical area for reduction but; what about water heating, space heating or cooling, cooking and refrigeration for example?
Coal or wood burning energy sources are definitely dirty (smoke, soot, etc) and their clean use can be too expensive for domestic application. Flammable gases probably present a better option which can be relatively clean and, hopefully less expensive overall.
Natural gas is sometimes referred to when discussing “renewable” energy but, the reality is that it is as much a fossil fuel as crude oil – however, there is still a lot of it available. Methane from living animal waste or renewable plants (biomass) is perhaps our only choice if we want real renewability.
During the refining of crude oil or the treatment of natural gas, various hydrocarbon derivatives are produced which used to be considered superfluous to oil & gas company profits and were even burnt off as waste. Today, many of these “extra opportunities” are being liquefied and stored under pressure in tanks or bottles. One of these is propane gas which can be used whenever heat is required. Whether for cooking or any other use, converting your home equipment to run on Propane In Manchester CT could be a wise choice.
