FACTS

Did you know...

There are hundreds of benefits for you and your customers when you build with propane. You've already learned fact #1. Now it's time to explore other facts that you as a builder should know about this clean, efficient, and powerful energy source. Including how it stacks up against others, including electric.

Fact #2:
Customers Prefer Clean Energy

Because about 30 percent of U.S. electricity comes from coal, propane appliances emit significantly less CO2 compared with electric models. So give your customers what they'd prefer.

Fact #3:
Homeowners Need To Feel Safe

For everything from hot meals to warm homes, millions of Americans rely on clean, safe propane, day in, day out. They can be confident they've made the right choice.

Fact #4:
Home Buyers Want Resiliency

When the electricity goes out, propane can provide your customers with hot showers, home cooked meals, comfortable heat, and with a propane generator, even electricity. It's the security they're looking for.

Fact #5:
Homeowners Demand Efficiency

Propane appliances not only have low first-costs, they're typically far more efficient than their electric counterparts, making them a cost-effective choice for new homes and remodels.

Lower Their Carbon footprint

Now, more than ever, buyers want a home that emits fewer greenhouse gases. When you install propane appliances, such as furnaces and water heaters, or even fireplaces, ranges, and clothes dryers, you’ll dramatically reduce a home’s carbon footprint. A propane dryer alone eliminates as much as three tons of carbon dioxide emissions over the course of its life, compared with an electric dryer. That’s what an average home produces in almost four months. It’s a difference customers will appreciate.


Build In Safety

Propane is a safe home energy source that your customers can feel good about. To begin with, propane is officially listed as a clean air fuel. Propane is also non-toxic, and won’t contaminate soil or groundwater. To give your customers the confidence that they’re making the smart energy choice for their home, we’ve created an entire library of safety materials, including videos, you can share with your customers. With propane they’ll feel safe, secure, and comfortable for years to come.


Offer Peace of Mind

Imagine being able to tell your customers that while other homes experience a power outage, they could still be enjoying all the comforts they love, such as warm meals, hot showers, and even a crackling fire, thanks to propane. Because propane is stored onsite, it’s always there to meet their needs. By adding a propane-powered standby generator, you can offer even greater peace of mind, and comfort no matter what’s happening outside. There’s no greater selling point than making a family feel more secure in their own home.


Deliver Unbeatable Efficiency

Here’s another way to convince prospective home buyers that propane is the smart choice: through their pocket book. Propane appliances can save homeowners hundreds of dollars in annual energy costs. How efficient are they? A propane furnace can pay for itself in energy savings in less than two years. A propane tankless water heater can save the average family more than $100 annually compared with electric models. Every customer is interested in saving money. Propane delivers those savings.
