Heating Up Home Value with Propane
Did you know that having propane appliances can increase the value of your home in the eyes of potential buyers? Consider the practical benefits and efficiency of propane-fueled appliances.
In the kitchen, people love the benefits of a propane cooktop or range. They offer instant turn-on and turn-off, are easy to clean up and provide precise temperature control for the at-home chef. Outdoors, people look for gas grills, particularly those connected to a buried tank which eliminates the need for tank exchanges.
Propane is also preferred for home heating. Propane-fueled furnaces offer better comfort by getting the air hotter, unlike the below-body-temperature air circulated from a heat pump. They work with faster air flow to keep the air comfortable and save money. What’s more, the lifespan of a propane furnace is typically much longer than electric heat pump.
Speaking of heating the air, propane-fueled fireplaces and gas logs provide comfort and pleasing ambiance with the mess of a wood-burning fireplace. People know they are also a great source of heat during a power outage.
Propane is also great for heating water. A tank water heater fueled by propane costs half as much to operate as an electric model, and it heats water faster. Space-saving tankless water heaters are up to 40% more energy efficient than tank-style water heaters, offering an endless supply of hot water and a life expectancy of more than 20 years.
In addition to being able to run a variety of appliances, propane produces fewer carbon emissions and is readily available thanks to delivery providers like Phillips Energy. It all adds up to a compelling value proposition for buyers in the market for a home.
