Total Home Experience – Powered by Propane

home kitchen

Propane is widely known for gas grills and summer BBQs, but it really offers so much more for the entire home. For nearly 100 years, propane has powered your entire home and creates that total home experience no matter where you live or what season it is.

Propane Fireplaces

What’s better than warming up by a crackling fireplace on a chilly night? Propane fireplaces provide a cleaner option versus wood burning fireplaces by not producing soot or smoke; plus they don’t have to be cleaned after every use.

Propane powered fireplaces are easier to install than wood-burning models…indoors and outdoors. They also deliver five to six times the heating capacity of electric fireplaces.

Hot Water Heaters

Did you know that gas or electric is one of the first questions a homeowner is asked when choosing a water heater? Knowing the difference is helpful in making the right choice. Propane water heaters take up less space compared to an electric water heater and they support both tank and instant water heaters. They’re also cheaper to maintain and operate.

Propane powered water heaters not only take up less space in your home, but they can also do the job of the larger electric units… so you can enjoy consistently comfortable hot water.

Cooking with Propane

Propane is a versatile fuel that heats your home, powers your appliances and you can even cook with propane. On average, cooking with propane lowers your energy use by 50% over electric stoves. It also provides more even heat while cooking – which means no more burned sauces, cakes, or casseroles – and why professional chefs prefer gas powered appliances.

Clothes Drying

Over its lifespan, a propane clothes dryer saves over 2,000 pounds of CO2 emissions compared to an electric model. That’s great news for the environment! Going with propane also means avoiding the cost of installing a 220V circuit for an electric dryer.


With a propane generator you’re always prepared for emergency situations and is available even when the gas pumps aren’t running. Propane gives you and your family peace of mind during a power outage by providing heat, hot water and hot food even in the worst of weather.
