The first thing you need to know is that for energy savings and performance, propane-powered water heaters beat electric models hands down.
Second, if you're replacing a water heater, you should know there have been big changes recently in the water heater market. Updated Federal efficiency standards for water heaters mean new models are larger. You can't just replace the old one with an updated model; it may not fit in the same space. Propane water heaters easily meet the space challenges of the new standards and deliver the comfortable consistent hot water your family needs.
Ninety-six out of 100. That's the number of professional chefs who say they prefer cooking with gas compared with electric. And who wouldn't? Propane-powered cooktops and ovens deliver instant heat, responsive control, and more even heat. Everyone should experience the joys of cooking with gas, including you.
We've covered the reasons the pros prefer propane. Even if the closest you come to gourmet cooking is heating leftovers, propane ovens and cooktops still have advantages compared with electric.

It doesn't matter if you run a load a week or face a mountain of your family's laundry every day. A propane-powered clothes dryer can make a big impact in your family's budget, compared with electric models. Think of the wardrobe you can buy, after saving 20 percent on annual energy costs.
Even with propane's huge energy cost savings, these dryers are packed with the high-performance features you're looking for. You'll find models that include steam cycles to de-wrinkle and freshen garments, drum lights to make it easier to see into the unit, LCD control screens for ease of use, and other time- and labor-saving features.
As one of the most energy intensive devices in your home, you might think your propane-powered clothes dryer has a large carbon footprint. Exactly the opposite is true. Your propane model saves nearly a ton of CO2 over its lifetime, compared with electric dryers.
With faster drying, fewer wrinkles and less ironing, and big savings in energy costs, you'll wish you'd switched to a propane clothes dryer much, much sooner.
All of the pleasures of a real fire, with none of the hassles. That's the beauty of a propane fireplace. You get the atmosphere and warmth that only a real flame can provide, plus plenty of other benefits you should consider.
