When people hear about propane, outdoor grills often come to mind first. But with modern advances in flexible gas piping, you can easily equip homes that deliver the benefits of propane to a wide range of outdoor appliances. Consider a few of the options:
Exterior propane lighting can add to a home's curb appeal by offering a warm, welcoming glow one that works even when electrical service is interrupted. A wide variety of portable, wall-mounted, and post-mounted lamps are available, many with energy-saving features such as on-off switches with automatic ignition.
Pool or spa heaters.
When pools, hot tubs, or outdoor spas are part of your customer's dreams, consider how propane can provide a fast, reliable, and efficient water heating solution. Propane heaters burn gas in a combustion chamber before transferring that heat to a pool, hot tub, or spa. These systems are energy efficient and can easily maintain water temperature within 1 degree Fahrenheit of the homeowner's desired setting.
Propane patio heaters extend the use of an outdoor room into the cooler seasons. The heaters provide up to a 20-foot radius of heat and raise the outdoor air temperature between 10 and 30 degrees Fahrenheit. Many models include adjustable temperature controls and safety features, and are equipped with gas lights to further extend outdoor time.
Propane can bring the warmth and beauty of a real fire to outdoor spaces. The newest generation of propane fireplaces and firepits brings a whole new level of flexibility and customer satisfaction.
Homeowners increasingly want to bring the kitchen outdoors. Nearly two-thirds of grill owners have propane grills and for good reason. Propane grills heat up and cool down quickly, making grilling safe and efficient. Propane also helps move other appliances outdoors: Propane refrigerators, dishwashers, and sinks increase food safety on hot days, eliminate endless trips indoors to fetch utensils and food, and allow for easy cleaning.
