Propane vs Butane – what’s the difference?

Whilst Propane and Butane have similar properties, they each have specific uses.

Propane has a lower boiling point, making it more suitable for outdoor storage – and is most commonly used for central heating, cooking, transport and commercial operations.

Butane is best used indoors, making it the preferred option for portable mobile heaters. It’s also used to power leisure activities during warmer, summer months, such as camping, boating and BBQs.
