With the COVID-19 pandemic beginning to subside here in the United States, there is expected to be a surge in residential construction.
In April, Reuters reported that housing starts are at their highest level in 15 years! Home starts in some areas of Texas are up by as much as 40%. One survey reported that younger consumers are planning to spend more on home improvement and renovation projects this year, as they’ve discovered the benefits of a comfortable home after being stuck there for so long in 2020.
This presents opportunities for home builders and renovation companies like yours. Using propane in your projects can help you gain a competitive edge over your competition and provides other benefits as well!
The Propane Energy Pod makes building or remodeling a home with propane easy! By merging five applications of propane into one integrated energy package for the whole house, you’ll build more efficiently while offering home buyers and homeowners the features they want!
The five ways propane is used in the Propane Energy Pod are:
These increase a home’s energy efficiency while adding features that homebuyers and homeowners want, such as gas cooking, easy and energy-efficient comfort, and an enhanced quality of life both indoors and out!
Homebuilders can be rewarded for using propane in the homes they build. The Propane Construction Incentive Program, from the Propane Education and Research Council, provides incentives of up to $7,500 a year to residential construction businesses that build homes with propane or propane appliances.
Beyond those benefits, propane can be used by your business to make your work more efficient and cost-effective, helping you to minimize costs so you can maximize profits.
Propane temporary heating keeps jobsites running and your workers safe while protecting work such as stucco, plaster, paint, concrete, and plumbing from the effects of cold temperatures.
Forklifts that run on propane are a better option than electric or gasoline forklifts. They don’t need hours to recharge like electric forklifts, and their extremely low emissions allow them to be operated indoors and in enclosed areas, places gasoline forklifts cannot go.
