Need help with the laundry? We're ready to pitch in!

Whether you run a load a week or two loads every night just to keep on top of your family's laundry, a propane-powered clothes dryer can make a big impact in your family's budget...and life. 

And it's not just about saving money with a more efficient way to dry. We're talking about saving time. Faster drying and fewer wrinkles (yes...that can lead to less ironing bring about better efficiency in all areas of life (especially for those families who are doing load after load of laundry each day). 

Interested in upgrading your clothes dryer to one powered by propane? Rebates are available while supplies last. 

The Virginia Propane Research and Education Foundation’s (VAPREF) safe appliance installation rebate program for 2017 features tiered rebates based upon installation of propane-fueled appliances and is offering $100 for propane clothes dryer upgrades.

Other rebates are also available, including:

• $100 for propane cooktop range

• $200 for vented propane heater and wall furnace

• $300 for propane water heater, gas pack. Must be at least 40,000btu and 90 percent or more efficient. For hybrid heating systems – dual fuel system must include propane.


Propane-powered clothes dryer models 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. 

These models can also lower your carbon footprint. 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. A propane model saves nearly a ton of CO2 over its lifetime, compared with electric dryers.


In the long run, propane saves you money. Propane appliances are energy efficient and can cut your energy costs. Everyone wants to save money; propane will help you do it.

Its versatility is unmatched. Performance is the number one reason most people choose propane. It can efficiently and effectively meet nearly all of your home's major energy needs, inside and out, from space heating and water heating to outdoor lighting and fire pits. 

It's clean. For homeowners interested in protecting the environment, propane is a clean low-carbon alternative fuel that produces significantly fewer greenhouse gas emissions than most other energy sources. In addition, propane is a nontoxic fuel that won't contaminate soil or groundwater, making it safe to use anywhere.

It's American made, American loved. The United States is the world’s leading producer and exporter of propane. That means it’s abundantly available. It's portable, too, which means it can be used virtually anywhere, including areas beyond the reach of natural gas.

And perhaps most important, propane is safe and reliable
