Propane Appliances for Space Heating, Water Heating, Dryers, Furnaces and More

Propane Appliances

Just about any electric-powered appliance has a propane-powered equivalent—one that usually outperforms it in just about any way you can measure. Best of all, you can fuel all of these appliances discretely from a single aboveground or underground propane storage tank.

Versatile propane heats your home and can power everything from water heaters, generators and stoves/cooktops to fireplaces, clothes dryers, outdoor grills, space heaters and more. That’s why we like to call it the single fuel solution for Iowans.

Propane provides terrific value and it’s a domestically made, eco-friendly alternative for heating your home or business. Propane puts less wear on equipment, so furnaces are easier to maintain, break down less and last longer—making a propane central-heating system a better investment than an electric-based system. Having a propane heating system is a great way to reduce your worries about furnace repairs and furnace maintenance costs.
