Building energy-efficient homes with propane

Have you heard about the Propane Energy Pod? No, it’s not the latest electronic gadget from Apple . It’s an innovative model for new-home construction that merges these five applications of propane into an integrated whole-house energy package:

  • space heating
  • water heating
  • cooking
  • clothes drying
  • fireplaces

Builders use this approach to give their buyers a home that is a pleasure to live in—with gas for cooking, clothes drying and fireplaces, unlimited hot water and super-efficient space heating.

Some builders are raising the bar even further by incorporating propane outdoor living products as well. As an added bonus, builder rebates of up to $7,500 per year are available through the Propane Education & Research Council.

Besides enjoying heightened, affordable comfort, anyone who builds a new home using the Propane Energy Pod model will have bragging rights because of how effectively it reduces carbon-emission reductions.
