Transform Your Home With Clean, American Propane
From the warm, comfortable heat of a propane furnace, to the experience of cooking with gas just like the professionals, imagine the ways you can give your family greater comfort with propane-powered appliances. Your all-propane home won’t just perform better; you’ll enjoy greater efficiency and energy savings compared with all-electric homes.
What you’ll enjoy most about a high-efficiency propane furnace is the comfortable, consistent heat it delivers, no matter how cold it gets outside. Easily installed nearly anywhere in a home, a propane furnace can provide space heating for any size floor plan, from small residences to large custom homes. They also have a significant advantage compared with electric or heating oil units: with ratings from 90 percent to 98 percent efficient, propane furnaces are best in class, and will even reduce your carbon footprint.
Hybrid Heating Systems
If you’re looking for protection from rising fuel costs but still value comfort, consider a hybrid heating dual fuel system. It’s a combination of an air source heat pump (ASHP) or ground source heat pump (GSHP) and a propane furnace that only kicks in during the coldest weather. In other words, you get the efficiency of the heat pump with the warmth of propane heating when the temperature plummets. A hybrid system comprised of an ASHP and a high-efficiency propane furnace can save you more than $300 annually, compared with a standard efficiency ASHP-only system.
A propane-powered high-efficiency boiler has the versatility to provide your home’s heat, hot water, and even snow melt. There are also a number of heating delivery systems with propane boilers to meet the needs of your home. Energy Star rated propane boilers have an efficiency rating of at least 85 AFUE, and those ranked Most Efficient by the EPA offer up to 19 percent energy savings over standard efficiency boilers. If you want to lower your energy costs and add value to your home, a high-efficiency boiler can help.
Tankless Water Heaters
Imagine endless hot water, on demand. That’s the reason more homeowners are choosing propane tankless water heaters; these small, innovative units deliver high volumes of hot water any time it’s needed. A propane-powered tankless water heater can produce more than 200 gallons of hot water per hour, compared with a standard 50-gallon electric storage tank water heater that can only deliver 64 gallons of hot water in the first hour. Depending on your family’s water use, that’s the difference between a steaming hot shower and an icy cold one. Here’s another reason propane-powered tankless water heaters are growing in popularity: you can save up to $300 in annual energy costs compared with electric models.
Storage Tank Water Heaters
Energy Star qualified propane storage tank water heaters give you the superior value you want, with the comfort your family is looking for. If you’re replacing an electric storage tank water heater, propane is definitely the smarter choice. New federal efficiency standards for water heaters mean new storage tank models are larger, and may not fit in the same space as your previous model. Propane storage tank water heaters are smaller in size compared with electric models of the same capacity, so they can fit where an electric model won’t. You won’t sacrifice performance though: a 40-gallon propane model delivers the same amount of hot water as a 50-gallon electric unit.
Ranges and Ovens
Thanks to instant heat and responsive control, gas cooking is the choice of professional chefs. You can enjoy the same performance, convenience, and sharp design in a variety of propane cooking equipment that will fit in any kitchen. An attractive, stainless steel gas range that combines a propane cooktop and oven is perfect for even the most space-challenged homeowners. If you’re a true foodie, look at propane-powered commercial-grade ranges, indoor grills and cooktops, in-wall double ovens, and other gas cooking appliances for your custom or outdoor kitchen.
If you’d like your clothes dryer to be more efficient, gentler to clothing, and more environmentally friendly, then a propane- powered dryer is a perfect match. Compared with an electric unit, a propane-powered dryer will work faster and relax wrinkles better by using hot air with more moisture. These dryers also offer the convenience features you’ve come to expect, such as moisture sensors to optimize drying time and save energy, drum lights to see inside the unit, and LCD control screens that make them easy to use. And whether you’re facing a mountain of laundry or lighter loads, you can find a propane-powered dryer with the capacity that’s right for you. Imagine the new wardrobe you can purchase with the 20 percent in annual energy savings you’ll enjoy.
There’s something attractive about real flames and the warmth and ambiance a fire brings to a living space. A propane fireplace will give you that real-flame experience and much more. They can be installed indoors or out, are significantly more energy efficient and environmentally friendly, and are easier to install and use than wood-burning models. They also deliver five to six times the heating capacity of electric fireplaces. Installing a propane fireplace can also increase the value of your home. Finally, consider your family’s peace of mind: during a power outage, many propane fireplaces can still operate, giving your family needed heat, light, and comfort.
Building or Remodeling, Propane is the Smart Choice
Building a house or remodeling your current one is a significant investment. Including propane appliances throughout your home will ensure results that are worth the effort. And even if you’re replacing a single appliance, you’ll still appreciate propane’s flexibility and efficiency. Give your family the performance, comfort, and efficiency of a whole home energy upgrade, with clean, American propane.
