Not only does propane have the capability to power all of your home’s major energy systems, but propane appliances perform better and save you money compared with an all-electric home.
Whether building a new home or remodeling your current one, it’s a significant investment. Including propane appliances throughout your home will ensure results that are worth the effort.
Consider incorporating these propane systems and appliances in your home project to improve performance and save money.
With ratings of 90 to 98 percent efficiency, propane furnaces are the best in class and deliver comfortable, consistent heating regardless of how cold it is outside.
Hybrid heating systems.
A hybrid heating or “dual fuel” system is the combination of an air-source heat pump (ASHP) or ground source heat pump (GSHP) with a gas/propane furnace. Hybrid heating systems improve ASHP and GSHP performance by using a high-efficiency propane furnace during colder outdoor temperatures instead of the heat pump’s inefficient electric resistance secondary heat.
Propane boilers serve a variety of space and water heating applications, allowing you to customize your home’s energy use.
Tankless water heaters.
Utilizing compact and highly innovative technology, tankless water heaters deliver an endless supply of hot water, eliminate standby losses, and save roughly 12 square feet of floor space. Furthermore, they save homeowners more than $150 per year in energy costs when compared with typical electric storage tank water heaters.
Storage tank water heaters.
Propane storage tank water heaters are a versatile, efficient, and reliable hot water solution for homeowners. Because a 40-gallon propane unit can deliver the same amount of hot water as a 50-gallon electric unit, its smaller size frees up more space. Eligible for Energy Star qualifications, homeowners can save roughly 13-20 percent in annual energy costs compared with standard electric and heating oil units.
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 dryers are gentler on clothing, dry items faster, save money, and even produce fewer wrinkles compared with electric models.
Propane fireplaces bring comfort, ambiance, and high-efficiency heating to the home. Offering true versatility, they can be indoors or out, and many models can still operate during electrical power outages.
