When you're building a new home or office building, you want to set up future owners and tenants for success.
Propane burns clean and combusts almost fully, so it wastes less energy and puts less stress on appliances. Ultimately, this can lead to less maintenance and a longer appliance lifetime1.
By installing propane systems and propane appliances—for heat, cooking, water heat, laundry, and more—you can create a property that's good for the environment, attractive to the market, and better for anyone who's using them.
From combined heat and power to specialty appliances like propane fireplaces, propane patio heat, and propane cooking appliances, you can easily run an entire home or commercial building on propane—and see significant savings when you do.
As a small sample, let's compare propane furnaces to electric heat pumps for building heat. Here's how propane stacks up:
Propane home heat is efficient, effective, and environmentally friendly.
Heat more water, faster with propane water heaters. Go tankless to see higher efficiency and longer equipment lifetime.
Prepare meals like the professionals, with instant, precise, and predictable heat that's evenly dispersed.
Propane dryers get loads dry quicker and emit less carbon dioxide, all while using less energy.
Add warmth and ambiance to a home without the hassle of soot, wood, or high energy bills.
Nix drafty areas and cold spots with a boost of even, efficient warmth from propane space heaters.
Get more out of your outdoor spaces in any season. Propane patio heaters can increase ambient temperature by 10 degrees.
Outdoor kitchens offer more options to entertain with propane-powered pizza ovens, rotisserie, griddles, grills, and more.
When the grid goes down, propane steps up. Propane power generators are an excellent, reliable backup power source when emergencies arise.
When it comes to installing a propane system, there are a range of tank sizes and installation options to choose from. If you're planning to run propane CHP (combined heat & power) for a large commercial building, you'll need a larger tank size than a home using propane for cooking and home heat.
