How To Get Started With Propane

Learn About Propane's Benefits

Propane has significant advantages for homebuilders. To start, all-propane homes are typically valued up to five percent higher than all-electric homes. The Propane Construction Incentive Program will actually pay you up to $7,500 annually, just for building or remodeling with propane. And if you want to build a reputation for quality and grow your business, propane can do that, too.

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.

The model merges the benefits of high-performance propane appliances into a whole-home energy package known as the Propane Energy Pod.

Work With A Propane Supplier

Enter your zip code to find a supplier in your area who serves the residential construction and remodeling market. Your local propane supplier will be happy to answer questions about propane tank placement (including above-ground or underground installation), fuel delivery options, and more. You can also find local suppliers by searching Google’s business listings.

Install Your Appliances

Work with your propane supplier to ensure proper installation of all propane appliances. And don’t worry about propane holding up your 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.
