Missourians who use propane save money, feel comfortable and help the environment.

From energy-efficient tankless water heaters to stylish stainless-steel appliances, home propane equipment provides exceptional performance at a very affordable cost, especially when you reap the benefits of using multiple propane appliances.

One of the hottest products these days is a propane tankless water heater—many are Energy Star rated. Down the road, you can expect to see more technological advances becoming widespread, including micro-combined heat and power (micro-CHP) systems that enable a furnace to be combined with a generator to heat a home and make electricity.

Being energy efficient is not just a perk for homeowners and builders. The performance and comfort of propane can extend beyond the home into your business. Cost savings and reliability are just a few benefits that come from installing propane appliances in commercial businesses.
