Building or Remodeling Your Propane Dream Home
Some of your home’s most critical functions run at their best when they’re fueled by gas. But not everyone has access to natural gas for their home. You may live in a more rural area, or perhaps a body of water nearby blocks the pipeline.
That’s where propane comes in. Propane is available virtually anywhere because it’s stored on your property and delivered by a local propane supplier.
Propane homes have a number of advantages over all-electric homes.
Propane Works Harder
Performance is the number one reason most people choose propane. After all, it can efficiently and effectively meet nearly all of your home’s major energy needs, inside and out, from space heating and water heating to outdoor flame lighting and fire pits.
Propane Saves Money
Propane appliances are extremely energy efficient and can save you hundreds, possibly even thousands, of dollars in annual energy costs. And propane itself is abundant, and competitively priced compared with electricity, heating oil, or other fuels. Everyone wants to cut energy costs; propane will help you do it.
Propane is Unbeatably Clean
For homeowners interested in reducing their carbon footprint, propane is a low-carbon alternative fuel that burns cleanly and produces significantly fewer greenhouse gas emissions than most other energy sources. In addition, propane is a non-poisonous, non-toxic fuel that won’t contaminate soil or groundwater, making it safe to use anywhere.

You’ll also enjoy greater efficiency and energy savings compared with all-electric homes. The beauty of an all-propane home is that the more appliances and systems you have that run on propane, the bigger the benefits.
