Propane Systems for New Construction Projects
Installing a propane tank right from the start as a part of a new home construction has many benefits and is certainly something you should consider. There are a ton of decisions to be made when you’re building a home, and where you’ll be getting your energy from is certainly one of them. Phoenix Construction can help you decide if propane makes sense for your new construction home.
At Phoenix Construction, we know that this process can be pretty overwhelming. That’s why our expert technicians will be happy to give you as much information as possible and help you thoroughly evaluate your options. When you have done this, however, you’ll begin to see why going with propane really is the best choice.
Propane is Cheaper
While the costs for the different types of energy sources can vary from one region to another, propane is almost universally cheaper than the alternatives. Propane is extremely energy efficient and it also burns cleanly, making it a more environmentally friendly choice. All of this is compounded by the fact that relying on propane for your heating, hot water and cooking needs will almost certainly save you quite a bit of money over time.
Reliability and Convenience
Propane is also a very reliable energy source. If you are set up to receive a regular delivery, you’ll never have to worry about running out of fuel or about what to do if the electricity goes out. In that kind of situation, you’ll still have heat and hot water, and if you have your propane tank hooked up to a backup generator, you can even have power.
Having your own propane tank on your property is also extremely convenient. You won’t have to worry about strains put on the grid by community usage or about being cut off for long periods of time. This is particularly important if you live in a remote area.
Better from the Beginning
Of course, you can choose to convert your home to propane at any time, but going with this energy source from the beginning does have several advantages. For instance, you’re much more likely to wind up with an underground propane tank when you include it as part of new home construction. This takes up less space than an above ground tank and generally costs less to install because it’s simply included as part of the whole package.
Also, by adding a propane tank as part of your new home package, you’ll be saving money from the minute you move in. You’ll also be able to pick out the right appliances and other features to make the most of your propane tank. If you convert later, you may either have to get new appliances or not be able to put your propane to use in every possible way.
The Versatility of Propane
Most people think of propane as a heat source, and indeed, that is where the majority of it goes. However, if you include an underground propane tank as part of your new home construction, you’ll also be able to hook it up to appliances like a fireplace, clothes dryer, stove and a tankless water heater. In fact, you can even hook up your central propane tank to outdoor appliances like your grill, hot tub or pool heater.
Once you’ve made the decision to go with propane, Phoenix Construction Propane will be there to guide you every step of the way. We’ll coordinate with your contractors and keep you informed about the status of your construction and installation. Our expert technicians will also be happy to explain to you exactly how your propane system works and what you’ll need to do to ensure you don’t run out.
And once we’ve installed your propane system, we’ll never be more than a phone call away. Anytime you need a tank refill or think there might be a problem, simply give us a call and we’ll send someone right out to handle the situation for you.
