Why Should I Upgrade?
Propane clean American energy is a reliable, safe, and efficient energy source that thousands of Texas homeowners and businesses rely on for their heating and water heating needs.
The ENERGY STAR® program gives propane a source site ratio of 1.01, compared to 3.03 for electricity from the grid. This means it takes 3.03 units of electricity to produce and deliver one unit of energy to a home, compared to only 1.01 for propane.

Benefits of Heating with Propane
Propane furnaces and boilers offer comfort, consistency, and efficiency you can depend on. A propane furnace or boiler is perfect for eliminating those cold pockets in your home or a commercial space. It will heat air to a higher initial temperature, getting to your desired temperature faster, and maintaining it more effectively. And it will do so with incredible efficiency.
Benefits of Water Heaters
Propane tank water heaters are a versatile, efficient, and dependable hot water solution for homes and businesses. There are propane storage tank or tankless water heater options, depending on your space and capacity needs. Propane water heaters offer superior hot water delivery and energy costs compared with traditional electric water heaters.
Propane storage tank systems store a large amount of water waiting to be used throughout your home, keeping it at a comfortable 120 degrees. A propane storage tank water heater delivers the same amount of hot water as an electric tank unit, all while taking up less space. A 40-gallon propane unit can deliver as much hot water as a comparable 50-gallon electric unit. A larger electric tank experiences greater efficiency loss (thermal losses to the surrounding area) due to its greater surface area.
Propane tankless systems heat water on-demand and go into standby mode when the water is not in use, saving energy. Since they are mounted units, they save up to 16 square feet of floor space.
Propane tankless water heaters provide an endless supply of hot water, averaging over 200 gallons/hour. Conversely, the average 50-gallon electric storage tank water heater has an average first-hour delivery rating of just 64 gallons, while a 50-gallon heat pump water heater averages about 67 gallons. These flow rates are less than one-third of the delivery rate for propane tankless systems.
In Texas, rebates are available for new propane furnaces, boilers, and water heaters.
