Courses about energy-efficient propane water heating
Propane-fueled water heaters are on the cutting edge of hot water delivery and energy efficiency. This efficiency translates into real savings for homeowners and building owners. Propane water heaters like the ones discussed in these courses can cost up to 60 percent less to operate than a standard electric tank model.
Residents depend on a reliable and sufficient supply of hot water for multiple uses in the home, and they are increasingly aware of the energy implications of different hot water systems. This course provides an energy, environmental, and economic analysis of 11 residential water heating systems in 10 geographic locations throughout the United States, with emphasis on the performance of propane-based systems relative to alternatives.
The energy use of a home varies widely depending on several factors, including the climate, number of occupants, resident behavior, and mechanical systems. Because there are so many contributing factors, decisions on where and when to invest in energy-efficient equipment can be tricky. In this course, learn more about what factors to take into account when considering an upgrade of a home’s energy system or appliances.
Today, a broad range of water heating systems fueled by propane can efficiently meet the hot water demands of large commercial buildings. Several innovative technologies also make propane an efficient, reliable, versatile, and environmentally friendly choice. This course will explore how propane is effectively used for water heating in a variety of commercial applications, including multifamily and lodging, commercial kitchens, pool heating, car washes, and laundry facilities.
