Are you getting the most fun possible from this beautiful western Connecticut summer?

If you feel like you and your family aren’t making the most of the longer days and warmer weather, we have some ideas to kick things into high gear. Many propane-powered appliances can significantly improve your quality of life — and, in a few cases, increase your property value.

Here are five ways that propane powers your summer fun!

Propane grilling

Whether you’re grilling a perfect porterhouse, a fresh salmon filet or a bunch of burgers and hot dogs, propane is the way to go. Propane grills light instantly, have ideal temperature control, emit less carbon monoxide and soot than charcoal and require virtually no cleanup. No wonder 61 percent of grill owners in the U.S. use propane.

Propane pool heating

Are you tired of dipping your toe in the water and discovering it’s too cold for an early evening dip? A propane-powered pool heater warms your water quickly and efficiently, and since propane burns incredibly cleanly, it’s safe for your family. With one of these heaters, your swim-time can extend into the night and later in the year!

Patio heaters

Don’t let your al fresco dinner end early just because there’s a chilly breeze. A propane-powered space heater can raise outdoor temperatures by as much as 30 degrees. All you have to do is flip on your heater before serving dessert!


Nothing creates instant outdoor ambiance like a propane firepit. Everyone will want to gather around your warm, spellbinding fire. The only problem will be getting them to leave! You certainly don’t have to worry about stoking the fire, dousing embers or cleaning up. The firepit goes on and off with the push of a button.

Even better, realtors say that firepits improve the “curb appeal” of your home!

Lighting up the night!

Propane lights add an elegant glow to patios, walkways, pools and entryways. This warm, sparkling light is inexpensive and eco-friendly. From pole lights to sconces to hanging fixtures, they add lovely accents to your summer evening.

These appliances can all connect to your home’s propane tank. If you are in the market for a dedicated, reliable propane provider, get in touch with Seymour Oil & Propane.
