Trends in Propane

Homebuilders – Elevate Your Homebuilding Projects with Propane

Propane is a versatile and efficient energy source that can power a variety of appliances throughout your homes. As a primary energy source, the benefits of propane extend from the core demands of heat and hot water to high-performance amenities such as fireplaces, cooking, laundry, outdoor living and backup generators.

Propane Adds Value for Homebuilders

Giving customers a variety of amenities is especially important today, as families are spending more time at home either sheltering in place due to COVID-19 or substituting “staycations” for traditional trips and travel. Providing home buyers with a suite of comfortable, safe, efficient and reliable appliances, all powered by a single energy source, can elevate your projects over conventional competitors.

On-site independence

Now more than ever, families want to feel in control of their lives. A winning option that provides unsurpassed control is the installation of a propane standby generator. Propane standby generators provide an extra level of security to homeowners. Your customers can rest easy knowing that even during a power outage, their home will keep running as usual. Propane backup generators will kick on within a matter of seconds after a power disruption. Think about everything in a home that a power outage can affect–heating and cooling, water heating, cooking, food spoiling in refrigerators and chest freezers and the list goes on and on. A propane standby generator replaces the worry and downtime from power outages with a comforting peace of mind.

Endless hot water

A tankless propane water heater can ensure that families will not run out of hot water, for bathing, laundry or washing hands. Suffering through cold showers or staggering appliance use because the water heater can’t keep up are no longer a problem. Even a conventional tank water heater benefits the homeowner through lower operating costs when compared with electric models. With today’s renewed focus on sanitation and cleanliness, a propane tankless water heater is a logical choice.

Kitchen control

Did you know that 96% of professional chefs prefer cooking with gas heat over electric? With propane’s instant heat and precise temperature control, even amateur chefs can cook like the pros. Propane gas cooking ranges have been at the top of homebuyers’ wish lists for years. With more people eating meals at home, a propane kitchen range is a great addition that can add not only make the kitchen more useful but also create additional value.

The space you’re in

Being confined at home is easier to take when your home features the warm ambience of a propane fireplace or the outdoor versatility of propane grills, firepits or lighting. Even in the laundry room, where propane dryers finish the load faster and with fewer wrinkles than do electric models, you’re able to spend more time doing what you want.

Clean, American energy

We’re all concerned about the impact we have on the environment. Propane allows homeowners to live independently and freely while having a lower carbon impact than a comparable all-electric home. For example, propane tankless water heaters have 50 to 60 percent lower CO2 emissions compared with electric storage tank systems. Propane is the cleanest conventional fuel, emitting far less greenhouse gas than most other energy sources. In addition, all the propane consumed in the U.S. is produced in North America, a key contributor to America’s energy independence.

Propane offers many advantages – for you, your customers and your community. Elevate your next project by creating the aspirational, comfortable experience that only propane can provide. To learn more about building with propane, visit
