Vs. Electric

Give your homes the propane advantage

Propane offers versatility, efficiency, and sustainability that’s unmatched by other energy sources. Construction professionals can enjoy the propane advantage as well: when you build with propane, you set your homes apart from the competition and give your buyers a level of performance they’ll pay a premium to enjoy.

Propane Works Harder

Propane can meet all of a home's major energy needs, inside and out. Choosing propane can even speed up a project's timetable, because you're not waiting to connect with local utilities.

Propane Means Comfort

Give buyers a place they can relax and truly feel at home. From more comfortable home heating to better home cooked meals, propane delivers.

Propane Makes Money

Home buyers are willing to pay for gas performance. All-gas homes are valued up to five percent higher than all-electric homes. Plus, propane is so efficient that homeowners can save hundreds in annual energy costs.

Propane is Sustainable

Much of America's electricity is produced by coal-burning power plants. With homebuyers concerned about their carbon footprint, clean-burning, low-emissions propane is a more sustainable and marketable choice than electric.
