Whether you're a production builder, developer, or focus on custom homes, propane can help you design, build, and market properties that attract homebuyers.
You want to make your properties as marketable to homeowners as possible, and propane is an appealing amenity that can help you do just that. This site will help you:
- Get up to speed on the basic features and properties of propane.
- Learn more about the latest appliances.
- Find a Propane Retailer.
- Get more information on the rebates and incentives that inspire homeowners to choose propane and ultimately to buy one of your homes.
- Improve a home's HERS Index score.
- 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 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 enables the Propane Energy Pod model for new construction, a whole-home systems approach to energy that increases efficiency, performance, comfort, and environmental profile of new homes.
- 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.
