Give Their Generator Less to Do. Save Your Customers Money by Installing More Propane Appliances.

Here’s some important information for your homeowner customers interested in whole-home standby power. By choosing propane appliances such as water heaters and furnaces, they can cut the capacity — and cost — of their whole home generator, compared with all-electric homes. That’s thousands of dollars in savings.

With Propane the Savings are Real

Your customers could save money on a whole-home standby generator — and enjoy greater comfort, better performance, and lower energy bills — by installing propane appliances in place of electric, where possible.

Homeowners enjoy the same results with propane appliances, no matter where they live. In different climate zones across the U.S., all-electric homes require generators anywhere from one-third to twice as powerful and expensive as homes using both electricity and propane.
