Consumers look to builders for green energy guidance and propane provides the solution

Here is why Propane is a smart source of energy for your home…

GREEN ENERGY

Propane can provide many of the green lifestyle attributes (clean, efficient, non-toxic), yet remains practical and proven reliable. Propane is a more efficient heating source than electricity, and is a reliable source of energy that home owners can count on.

PROPANE IS CLEAN

A home that uses propane for heating, water heating, clothes drying and cooking contributes 60% less carbon dioxide to the atmosphere than an all-electric home whose power is generated at a coal-fired plant. Using a propane tankless water heater can avert up to 1,470 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions.

PROPANE APPLIANCES CAN HELP SAVE WATER

Propane appliances like tankless water heaters heat water on demand, instead of storing it in a tank, saving the average American family 10-20% of it daily water use.

PROPANE IS EFFICIENT

Tankless water heaters can lower household energy bills by up to 40%. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that propane fireplaces cost 30% to 60% less per hour to operate than wood-burning fireplaces. Wood-burning fireplaces can lose as much as 90% of the heat they generate, whereas propane fireplaces (and log sets) are up to 100% efficient.

PROPANE IS VERSATILE

Propane can be used to power your Vehicles, Lawnmowers, Refrigerators, Ice Fishing Augers and Weed Whips.

AmeriGas Propane is the largest propane supplier in the United States
