Furnaces & Boilers
With a propane furnace or boiler, you can give homeowners more cost-efficient heating, and more comfortable and consistent warmth compared with other fuel sources.
Whether you choose a propane storage tank water heater, or save floor space with a propane tankless water heater, you can be sure you’re giving homeowners the performance they demand. Plus, with new efficiency standards making electric models bigger and bulkier, high-efficiency propane water heaters can be easier to install.
Ranges, Ovens, & Stoves
Simply by giving a kitchen propane cooking appliances, you give the whole home a high-end feel. Your customers will enjoy the control of cooking with gas, just like the professionals.
Propane-Powered Clothes Drying
A propane clothes dryer is a simple addition that shows homeowners you don’t overlook any details. They’re easily vented and give homeowners better performance, and incredible efficiency.
Propane fireplaces are significantly warmer and more energy efficient compared with electric or wood fireplaces. With modular assembly, power venting, and other advantages, propane fireplaces give you more design flexibility than ever before.
Show your customers you’re going the extra mile for their peace of mind. A propane-powered standby generator gives a homeowner comfort and security in the event of a power outage.
Propane isn’t just for the interior of homes. Transform the exterior of your next project with a fire pit or fireplace, flame lighting, full outdoor kitchen, and more.
Storage & Distribution
Propane gives your customers independence from the grid, because it’s stored onsite, and delivered by professional propane suppliers. You can even give your customers the choice of above-ground or underground tank installation, to preserve the aesthetics of their yard. For larger developments, consider a community tank system, that supplies all of a development’s homes with propane, similar to a natural gas line.
Propane’s portability, low emissions, and ease of refueling makes it a great choice for construction equipment, including generators, heating, scissor lifts, and even work trucks.
We're always looking for an opportunity to use propane for so many reasons, not just the efficiency. It's readily available, it's a super reliable and efficient source to cook and heat with. Ron Scarpa, President, Barefoot Brothers Construction

When people are buying new construction, they want the best amenities out there. And those are your gas fireplaces, gas tankless hot water heaters. They want those modern-day luxuries that electric just can't offer. Tom Burleigh, General Manager, Rockwell Custom
If you are interested in space saving, if you're interested in cost efficiency, and you're interested in the environment, why would you not use propane gas? It's a great product. Ron Scarpa, President, Barefoot Brothers Construction
Learn About Propane's Benefits
Propane has significant advantages for remodeling professionals. To start, homeowners are willing to pay a premium for the kind of performance only propane can deliver. You can give customers propane performance throughout their home and even outdoors, by installing appliances from furnaces to flame lighting. The Propane Construction Incentive Program will pay you up to $1,500 per home, just for remodeling with propane. And if you want to build a reputation for quality and grow your business, propane can do that, too.
Explore Appliance Options
Don’t stop with just a propane water heater or furnace. If your remodel includes one propane appliance, consider adding propane kitchen appliances, clothes dryers, fireplaces, backup power, and more. And when you include more propane appliances in your plans, your customers can count on outstanding performance and even greater energy efficiency.
For a competitive advantage in home performance, comfort, and efficiency, 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.
