Propane Energy SavingsBuilding a new home?

Our friends at the Propane Education and Research Council have some great tips on how to use propane to save energy in your new home right from the start. They call it the Propane Energy Pod, and it's a combination of five applications of propane appliances that save energy and reduce greenhouse emissions.

Here are some ways you can put the pod to work for you:

Space heating
Propane furnaces, space heaters, and boilers can reduce energy costs up to 68 percent, while maintaining comfort.

Water heating
Propane water heaters can drastically slash the costs of heating water. Tankless versions can save a homeowner up to $150 a year.

Cooking
In addition to reduced energy consumption, propane ranges, cooktops and ovens also allow for more precise control of heat levels.

Clothes drying
Not only do propane dryers work more quickly than electric dryers, they're also 20 percent cheaper to run. Talk about a win-win!

Fireplaces
Propane fireplaces have up to 6 times the heating capacity of electric fireplaces, and don't pull hot air from the rest of the house, like wood-burning units do. Plus, they cost as little as $50 a year to operate.
