Here are some of the ways propane can make your home better.

Furnaces and boilers

You can’t beat propane for fast, even, efficient home heating. Today’s high-efficiency propane furnaces and boilers boast efficiencies of up to 98%, which means that for every dollar you spend on propane, almost all of it contributes towards heating your home, with only two cents lost in combustion. You’ll cut your energy costs from the moment your new propane heating system is turned on!

Water heaters

Heating water is the second-largest energy expense in a home, behind only home heating and cooling, and it typically takes up 20% of annual energy bills.

Propane water heaters offer unparalleled comfort while drastically reducing your energy costs. With a 40-gallon propane storage tank, you can get the same amount of hot water in an hour as what is provided by a 50-gallon electric model!

Are you looking for additional comfort and convenience, but with significantly lower energy bills? A propane tankless water heater provides endless hot water on-demand while saving you money in the process! This revolutionary appliance can reduce your water heating costs dramatically.


From summer storms to winter nor’easters, power outages can make life at home anything but easy. At best, they are a major inconvenience; however, at worst they can be quite hazardous.

A propane whole-house backup generator allows you to power your HVAC system, refrigerator, electronics, essential home medical equipment like CPAPs, and more so you and your loved ones stay safe and comfortable.

Ranges, cooktops, and ovens

If you’re looking for a gas source to power your cooking, propane is the best solution because it’s a secure, reliable energy source you can use regardless of whether your neighborhood is served by a gas utility.

Propane cooking provides many advantages, particularly the precise and instantaneous temperature control that helps you cook your food to perfection. In comparison, electric ranges can be considerably slower in terms of heating up and cooling down. Moreover, since propane ovens generate heat with more moisture than their electric counterparts do, roasts and turkeys are far less likely to dry out!

Outdoor living

Propane is an invaluable asset both within and outside your home. For instance, propane grills are easy to light up in minutes instead of the tedious half-hour it takes for a charcoal fire to ignite. Furthermore, they provide precise temperature control allowing you to cook various foods perfectly!
Let propane elevate your outdoor living with its range of amenities, including pool and patio heaters, deck and patio heaters, firepits, insect traps, outdoor lighting systems, even an elegant fireplace. Propane helps you make the most out of every moment in your backyard.

Space heaters

Not only is propane fantastic for whole-house heating, but it can also be utilized to make any unheated or underheated spaces functional throughout the year. Whether you need to heat up workshops, sunporches, garages, or sheds, propane space heaters offer superior efficiency and comfort compared with electric heaters.

Clothes dryers

Doing laundry can often be a boring, tedious task that we all want to get done as soon as possible.
Speed up your laundry routine with a propane clothes dryer! Not only does these get your laundry 25% faster than a comparable electric one, but its moister heat also creates fewer wrinkles and prevents wear. Put simply: you’ll have fresh clothes in no time AND less ironing to do when it’s all said and done.
