How Your Home is Powered Now

More About Propane

Since you’re already a propane user, you know the extra comfort propane brings to your home, and what ways it’s more cost-efficient than other energy sources. Keep in mind, if you’re only using propane for one or a couple applications in your home, you’re missing out on maximized energy savings. It’s easy for your propane supplier to add more propane appliances to your home, so be sure to ask them what other uses make sense for your situation.

A Note About Natural Gas

You’re on a natural gas line, but you could use propane to upgrade your outdoor living space. Propane powers grills, fire pits, and patio heaters that transform your backyard into an outdoor living room.

Electricity’s Lack of Reliability and Efficiency

Like a lot of people, you use electricity to power a majority of your home appliances. The issue with many electric appliances is their efficiency compared with propane-powered units. When it comes to water heaters, for example, propane performs so efficiently that you can expect lower annual energy costs than you’d get with electricity. The electric grid also leaves you vulnerable to unexpected power outages that might last hours or days, unless you have a propane standby generator.

Backing Up Solar Power

You’re making a great choice for the environment by incorporating solar into your home’s energy mix. You can back up that renewable power source with a propane standby generator for the ultimate peace of mind, especially during shorter, cloudy days in the winter. It’s also a good time to research how propane can work with your solar energy to ensure your energy-intensive appliances are operating at peak efficiency all year: furnaces, water heaters, clothes dryers, kitchen appliances.

The Drawbacks of Geothermal

You’re already using a geothermal system, but you can supplement it with a propane system for better comfort when outdoor temperatures dip. When the geothermal system can’t keep up with the heat demand, the propane furnace kicks in to keep you comfortable with temperatures up to 35 degrees warmer than what geothermal alone can deliver.

Time to Retire Heating Oil?

It’s probably past time to retire your heating oil system for a propane furnace or boiler. Propane systems have overall lower energy costs compared with heating oil systems, without taking away the convenience of having your heating energy stored on-site. And once you have an above- or underground tank installed, you can begin saving more by using propane for water heating, cooking, standby power, and more.

Your Midwestern Home

Because you live in the Midwest, you probably want a home that can be comfortable during the frigid winter months, with a backyard to enjoy during warmer weather. You can power a high-efficiency furnace and a gas fireplace with propane for cozy, reliable warmth. To top it off, a propane water heater will deliver an abundant amount of hot water so you’re never left with a cold shower. Outside, propane powers a variety of stylish outdoor living products to upgrade any size of space. And to back it all up no matter what the weather is doing, you can add a clean, quiet propane standby generator to your property.

Your Northeastern Home

Because you live in the Northeast, you probably want a home that can be comfortable during the cold winter months, with an outdoor space to enjoy during warmer weather. You can power a high-efficiency furnace and a gas fireplace with propane for cozy, reliable warmth. To top it off, a propane water heater will deliver an abundant amount of hot water so you’re never left with a cold shower. Outside, propane powers a variety of stylish outdoor living products to upgrade any size of space. And to back it all up during thunderstorm and hurricane season, you can add a clean, quiet propane standby generator to your property.

Your Southwestern Home

Because you live in the Southwest, you probably want indoor and outdoor living spaces. Inside, propane kitchen appliances give you the gas performance you want, and the style you’re picturing for a dream kitchen. Outside, propane powers a variety of stylish outdoor living products to upgrade any size of space — all without the need for burning wood during “no burn days.” And to support it all even if the power goes out, you can add a clean, quiet propane standby generator to your property.

Your Southeastern Home

You probably already spend a lot of time enjoying the outdoors — lucky you. Since you’ll be outside anyway, think about all the ways propane outdoor living amenities could liven up your space, even if it’s just making family dinners more special. And during severe weather season, you can back up your home with the reliability of a clean, quiet propane standby generator.

Your Western Home

Because you live in the Western U.S., you probably want indoor and outdoor living spaces. Inside, propane kitchen appliances give you the gas performance you want, and the style you’re picturing for a dream kitchen. Outside, propane powers a variety of stylish outdoor living products to upgrade any size of space. And to support it all even if your power goes out, you can add a clean, quiet propane standby generator to your property to be prepared for any kind of outage.

Ideas for Your Home

For the Kitchen

If you’re the type who spends most of their time in the kitchen, you probably know that gas appliances are far more popular than electricity. And for good reason: Gas appliances, like those powered by propane, deliver more precise heat and generally cost less to use than electric appliances. Styles are available to suit every taste and square footage needs, too.

For the Backyard

Whether you have a huge backyard or a cozy back patio, you can make it more comfortable — and keep it cleaner — with a propane grill, fire pit, fireplace, or one of many other options.

For your Living Spaces

From the living room to the den, and all other living spaces in between, propane can keep your home at its coziest with efficient fireplaces and furnaces. Propane fireplaces give you five times more heat than a wood-burning fireplace, and propane furnaces deliver warmer heat from the vent than electricity.

For your Bathrooms

Did you know one year for you is like ten for your water heater? Protect yourself from cold showers — start researching the differences between propane storage tank and tankless water heaters, how they both outperform electric units, and what the age of your water heater means for your home.

Your Environmental Impact

Like a lot of people, minimizing your carbon footprint is important to you. The good news is, choosing propane over electricity can help you with that goal by reducing greenhouse gases and your carbon footprint, along with other pollutants that harm the environment and worsen respiratory issues for people. Propane is also an approved clean alternative fuel under the Clean Air Act of 1990 and is nontoxic.

Improving Your Home’s Energy Efficiency

If you’re interested in keeping your home’s costs in check (who isn’t?), you need to choose appliances that perform efficiently: using less energy to perform better. Propane high-efficiency appliances, like units with ENERGY STAR ratings, will save you more money than electricity in the form of lower energy bills. There are nearly 200 models of propane storage tank water heaters that are ENERGY STAR-qualified, but none for electricity. In the case of furnaces and water heaters, propane appliances will usually have a longer life than electric models. Talk to a local propane supplier about your options for high-efficiency propane appliances. They can help you with finding a retailer for the appliance or may be able to sell it to you directly.

The Drawbacks of Geothermal

It’s true that geothermal (or a GSHP system) has low annual energy costs, but the savings don’t go much further. It could take you up to 20+ years just to pay back the cost of installing the complicated underground system, once you factor in the cost of the heat pump, digging, installing, and burying the ground loops. High-efficiency propane furnaces, however, are more affordable to purchase and install — with a payback period of just two years. They also deliver consistent heat in the 120-140 degree range. Geothermal hovers around 90-120, which can make you feel cold even when the heat is running.

What You Need to Know About Propane

Since you’re in the early stages of planning, you may not know what energy source will power your home yet. Keep in mind that propane delivers the best cost-efficiency for the cleanest performance across appliance types. And once you’re using propane for one appliance (like home heating), it’s easy for your local propane supplier to install other money-saving propane appliances as well, like a range and oven, or a fireplace.
