As an HVAC contractor, you want the best heating and cooling solutions for your customers.

You want to set them up with durable, long-lasting appliances that will perform at a high level and still be affordable. Luckily, propane can do that.

Propane is also a great energy option for environmentally conscious customers. Propane furnaces reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 22% compared to electric furnaces. Propane tankless water heaters cut CO₂ emissions in half compared to electric units.

There are several reasons to suggest propane appliances to your clients. Propane provides performance, comfort, efficiency, and security. With propane, your customers will enjoy greater performance and energy efficiency, leading to lower monthly utility bills. Your customers will appreciate the value that propane adds to their home, and you will benefit from long relationships with happy customers, not to mention the added business from referrals.

Why to Install Propane Appliances

Propane Water Heaters
Propane tankless water heaters are a popular option for homeowners because they provide an endless supply of hot water on demand. Since there is no energy wasted by heating water in a tank, propane water heaters can save a homeowner an average of $150 a year compared to electric options. In addition, tankless water heaters are compact in design and can save up to 12 sq. feet of floor space, which is really valuable in smaller homes with less available space.

Propane Furnaces
Propane furnaces typically operate at 90-98% efficiency, and they produce warmer air than electric furnaces. Electric units only produce air at or below the average body temperature of 98 degrees Fahrenheit, whereas propane furnaces can deliver a warmer, more comfortable heat with air between 115 and 120 degrees. Your customers will feel the difference.

Propane Standby Generators
Adding a standby propane generator for your customers can also be a great option to give them an extra sense of security and layer of protection from volatile Missouri storms. Propane generators will keep a home’s appliances running even when the power lines go down. And unlike gasoline or diesel, propane doesn’t degrade over time, making it ideal for a standby fuel. What’s even better? Installing a standby generator at a home with existing propane appliances can be a great way to add incremental profits for your company.
