The Propane Energy Pod

Water Heating Systems

A model for new-home construction that merges space heating, water heating, cooking, fireplaces, and clothes drying into a whole-home energy package.

The Propane Energy Pod is a home energy package that delivers superior comfort and efficiency compared with all-electric homes. Using high-efficiency propane gas appliances for major applications provides optimal energy performance unmatched by electric alternatives. For a competitive advantage in home performance, comfort, and efficiency, build your propane homes with these five applications.

  • Space Heating. Cost-efficient heating with a more comfortable and consistent warmth.
  • Water Heating. Faster hot water with up to 50 percent cost savings compared with electric options.
  • Cooking. The joy and control of cooking with gas, just like the professionals do.
  • Clothes Drying. Faster drying for up to 20 percent reduced energy use.
  • Fireplaces. Significantly warmer and more energy efficient than electric or wood fireplaces.
