Welcome, HVAC Contractors

From comfort to energy-efficient performance, your clients will love propane.


Whether you're working new construction or helping homeowners remodel their existing home, propane is a smart energy option worth serious consideration. Not only does propane outperform competing energy sources in many instances, it also allows homeowners to take advantage of federal and local rebates and incentives. The result: You can get bids signed faster.

This site will give you the information you need to add propane to your service offerings. There are three basic things you and your homeowners should know about propane:

 

  • It's clean energy. Propane's low emissions make it an approved alternative fuel recognized by the Clean Air Act of 1990 and a qualifying alternative fuel eligible for various federal tax incentives under the Energy Policy Act of 2005. Using propane produces less than half of the greenhouse gas emissions than using an equivalent amount of electricity generated from the U.S. grid.
  • It slashes energy costs. Propane appliances typically are far more efficient than their electric counterparts. An Energy Star-qualified propane tankless water heater with an efficiency factor (thermal efficiency) of 82 percent, for instance, can save a homeowner up to 60 percent on his or her energy bill compared with a standard electric model.
  • It supports today's lifestyle. Propane provides homeowners with the modern amenities they want, including on-demand hot water and energy for outdoor living spaces.
