Propane gas appliances offer efficiency, savings and comfort for today’s home.
You have a choice. Propane gas appliances provide you with a broad range of lifestyles choices, provide ways to save and add value to your home. Gas heat is your home’s foundation for comfort. The quality of your home’s heating system equates to the quality of comfort you provide for yourself and your family.
A gas furnace with conventional air conditioning is the best option for home heating and cooling today. A high-efficiency propane gas furnace provides comfort and savings – no matter how cold the outside temperature.
The gas furnace will provide warm comfortable heat regardless of how cold it is outside. Today’s furnaces are more efficient too. New government regulations dictate that manufacturers can only offer equipment with AFUE rating of 78 percent or higher. The higher the efficiency of the furnace, the less it will cost to operate. You can purchase gas furnaces today that are 97 percent efficient.
Unlike the electric heat pump, a gas furnace provides warm even heat throughout the home. Your skin temperature is 98.7F degrees. Electric heat comes out of a heat pump at 95F degrees, so it will feel cool to your skin. Gas heat comes out at 130F degrees, so it will feel warm to your skin. Therefore, you will not have the cold drafts a heat pump produces. If you like to turn your thermostat down at night and when you are away from home, a gas furnace will quickly reheat your house when you return. The heat pump will take a long time to reheat your home or bring on the expensive backup heat do the same thing.

Gas fireplaces today are available in vented and non-vented models. If you have an existing wood burning fireplace, vented logs can be installed and you never have the mess of cleaning up and hauling ashes again. Even if you do not have a fireplace now, you can install non-vented logs in a nice mantle against the wall and enjoy the beauty and heat they provide. A gas fireplace will add ambience to the room and provide auxiliary heat when your electricity goes out. If you are currently using electric heat, a gas fireplace can reduce your overall heating bill and make your home more comfortable. Try the wall thermostat or the remote control. What convenience!

After the regrigerator, the clothes dryer uses more electricity than any other household appliance. Perhaps the most outstanding benefit of a propane clothes dryer is that it can complete the drying task in about 3/4 of the time it takes an electric model.
Today’s gas dryers use less energy than older models. No pilot lights are required because the dryers light automatically. You can save money, time, and more . . .as you dry every load of clothes, with your new energy-efficient propane gas dryer.
- Propane gas dryers quickly reach the desired temperatures to dry clothes evenly.
- Propane gas dryers produce a moist heat that’s not as likely to burn or discolor fabrics as the heat produced in electric dryers.
- The net result is less wear and tear on fabrics, which also saves money.
Propane cooking appliances cover a wide spectrum,
from low-cost economy models to deluxe units.

Gas burners do not have problems with warped-bottom pans. Electric heating elements require flat-bottom pans to maximize their cooking ability.
Gas provides more even heat across the bottom of pots and in the oven, which means fewer hot spots to scorch foods.
Pilotless ignitions on propane stoves eliminate the need for a constant pilot light. This can save you 40% overall in energy use.
Gas appliances are not affected by electric power outages.
