How To Get Started With Propane
Learn About Propane's Benefits
Propane offers significant advantages for homebuilders. To start, all-propane homes are typically valued up to five percent higher than all-electric homes. Plus, the Propane Construction Incentive Program will actually pay you—up to $1,500 per home—for building or remodeling with propane. And if you want to build a reputation for quality and grow your business, propane is the reliable energy for you.
Explore Your Appliance Options
Don’t stop with just a propane water heater or furnace. Once you’ve included propane for one appliance, it’s easy to add propane kitchen appliances, clothes dryers, fireplaces, backup power, and more. 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.
For a competitive advantage in home performance, comfort, and efficiency, build or remodel your homes with these five propane applications:
- Space Heating: Cost-efficient heating with a more comfortable and consistent warmth.
- Water Heating: Faster hot water with up to 50 percent cost savings compared with electric options.
- Cooking: The joy and control of cooking with gas, just like the professionals do.
- Clothes Drying: Faster drying for up to 20 percent reduced energy use.
- Fireplaces: Significantly warmer and more energy efficient than electric or wood fireplaces.
