Propane Is Energy Efficient

Construction pros and homeowners concerned about the cost of energy should consider efficient, high-performing propane.

With energy costs rising faster than wages, it's never been more important for construction professionals to help homeowners make wise energy choices. In many situations, propane can provide a homeowner with significant cost savings over time.

Take propane tankless water heaters, for example. They can cost up to 60 percent less to operate than standard electric storage models. They can nearly eliminate standby energy loss from the tank, reducing overall energy consumption by 10 percent to 15 percent when compared with storage water heaters. Propane tankless water heaters are also environmentally friendly. Switching from an electric storage water heater to a propane tankless system for two years can have the same impact on greenhouse gas emissions as switching from a mid-size sedan to a Toyota Prius for a year.

A home's resale value is also important to your customers. By using an energy-efficient fuel source for major appliances, builders can enhance both the initial sales price and resale value of the homes they construct.
