Propane Products for Commercial Buildings & Construction

How to Get Started with Propane

Learn About Propane's Benefits

Commercial appliances powered by propane offer significant advantages over other fuel sources. Greater performance, lower emissions, and increased efficiency are just some of the benefits. This site is a great resource to learn more about propane’s comfort and performance for businesses and commercial properties, such as:

Restaurants and Retail:
The cost of energy is a major component of operating costs, and business owners can’t risk any downtime or impact on their operations from an unreliable source of energy. Building and renovating with propane appliances can help slash energy costs and deliver the key performance amenities that are vital to their business, keeping their bottom line top of mind.

Schools and Religious Establishments:
School administrators and religious leaders have enough to worry about with busy weekly schedules, large groups in attendance, and ever-tightening budgets. The last thing they need is to worry about the reliability — or the cost — of their heating. Propane heating can drastically cut down utility bills while utilizing trustworthy systems that ensure the heating won’t fail at an inopportune time.

Hotels and Resorts:
To ensure ongoing comfort and safety for their guests, hotel and resort owners need a fuel that can stand up to every challenge. Building with propane allows them to offer delightful amenities like fire pits and fireplaces that will wow guests — and turn them into regulars. Plus, propane generators won’t let a power outage ruin anyone’s stay.

Apartments and Condos:
Owners and developers of multifamily housing projects know that to remain competitive, they need to offer modern and attractive amenities that set their units apart. And they need to keep utility bills low to ensure they retain their residents. Building with propane provides multifamily owners with a smart energy choice that makes their units marketable and appealing.

Explore Appliance Options

Just like homeowners, business owners and building managers prefer the performance of gas powered appliances over electric. And once you’ve included propane for one application, it’s easy to take advantage of propane for others throughout a property. Nearly any gas appliance can be converted to run on propane. And when you include more propane appliances in your plans, you can count on outstanding performance and even greater energy efficiency.

Work With A Propane Supplier

You can also find local suppliers by searching Google’s business listings.

Installing Appliances

Don’t worry about propane holding up a project. In many cases, using propane can speed things up, because you’re not at the mercy of public utilities for connections to the grid.
