Energy Efficiency

Propane is one of the most energy-efficient fuels around

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.

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.
