Propane is a great choice when you are looking for an energy-efficient remodel. Endless hot showers, hours by the fireplace, and a restaurant-caliber kitchen are a few of the added comforts that can be expected when a remodel is fueled by propane.
Replacing existing electric appliances with propane models for all of your primary household energy needs — space heating, water heating, cooking, clothes drying, and fireplaces — can increase a home's comfort and efficiency. For example, an Energy Star-qualified propane tankless water heater with an efficiency factor of 82 percent could save up to 60 percent on your energy bill compared with a standard electric model. And, using propane produces less than half of the greenhouse gas emissions than using an equivalent amount of electricity generated from the U.S. grid.
In addition, the advancements of propane space heating systems have far outpaced heating oil in virtually every way. Not only will your family enjoy more consistent warmth, but you'll also enjoy the tremendous performance and value of propane-powered furnaces and boilers. In the Northeastern United States, for instance, converting to an Energy Star Most Efficient-rated propane furnace could save you 17 percent in annual energy costs while producing 30 percent fewer carbon dioxide emissions compared with a standard efficiency heating oil unit.
