Building A Home
Powering the American Dream
Building a home is a big part of the American dream. When you include propane in those plans, you transform a house into a home — one you'll love for years to come. Bring home the power of propane to enjoy greater comfort and lower energy bills, too.
When it comes to your family's comfort, propane outperforms other energy sources hands down.
High-efficiency propane appliances can save you hundreds in annual energy costs.
Propane is not only a clean-air fuel, it keeps working when the electricity goes out.
Propane can power the kind of high-end, high-performance appliances you want for your home.
Propane Products for Your Home
Furnaces & Boilers
A propane furnace or boiler is perfect for eliminating those cold pockets in your home. It will heat air to a higher initial temperature, getting to your desired temperature faster, and maintaining it more effectively. And it will do so with incredible efficiency.
With a high-efficiency propane storage tank water heater, you can save up to 16 percent in annual energy costs compared with electric models. Install a propane tankless water heater to enjoy endless hot water, and even lower energy bills.
Ranges, Ovens, & Stoves
Ninety-six percent of professional chefs prefer cooking with gas, and once you upgrade to a propane cooktop or oven, you’ll understand why. Instant heat, more precise temperature control, and greater efficiency are all reasons you should upgrade to propane kitchen appliances.
Propane-Powered Clothes Drying
You can add propane performance to nearly any room in the house, including the laundry room. Propane-powered clothes dryers are gentler on clothing compared with electric models, they dry items faster, save money, and even produce fewer wrinkles.
Propane fireplaces produce more heat than traditional wood burning fireplaces, and they’re more energy efficient, too. Plus, with propane, you can enjoy a toasty fire at the flip of a switch, with no ash or soot to clean up, and no firewood to store.
Power outages are bound to happen, but adding a propane standby generator will give you greater peace of mind. There are generators for any size home, and can power as much or as little of your home’s systems as you need.
Propane can power your grill, or an entire outdoor kitchen. Don’t stop there: propane fireplaces or fire pits and flame lighting add warmth and ambience to any setting. Propane pool or spa heaters and patio heaters keep the fun going even with a chill in the air.
Storage & Distribution
With propane, you don’t have to rely on the grid. You can live anywhere, because propane is stored on your property and delivered by a propane professional. You can even have your tank stored below ground, to improve your home’s aesthetics. Once installed, your tank supplies your appliances with propane the same way a natural gas line would work.
