Use Propane for Clothes Encounters
Whether your laundry pile regularly looks like a mountain or a molehill, it’s easy to find a propane dryer with a capacity that works for you.
Quickly reaching the required temperature to dry clothes evenly, propane dryers generally operate for less than electric dryers. Plus, clothes get subjected to less wear and tear as a result of the moist heat of propane dryers. Your propane dryer’s moisture-sensing controls will automatically shut it off at just the right time.
Propane Keeps the Hot Water Flowing
Propane water heaters offer roughly double the water recovery rate of electric models, yet they typically cost up to 30% less to operate. They take up less space while fueling some of the most efficient water heating technologies currently on the market. Propane water heaters also offer a higher level of accuracy when it comes to temperature adjustment, along with providing more installation choices and size options.
