Install Propane Appliances, Get Cash!
Many of the propane appliances you install, including water heaters, gas packs and furnaces, qualify for rebates from the North Carolina Propane Education and Research Foundation. Close the sale by letting customers know about homeowner rebates—then cash in by applying for installer rebates! Please note: propane marketers are not eligible for installer rebates.
Installing propane appliances is easier than you may think
- Propane equipment is more efficient than electric appliances, lasts much longer and can save money over time.
- Every propane appliance is made with safety shut-offs and most appliances are equipped with electronic ignition systems to provide years of trouble-free operation.
- Propane water heaters have a hot water recovery rate that’s about twice as fast as electric models, which means there’s little chance of running out of hot water.
- Propane is considered one of the cleanest carbon-based fuels, emitting far less greenhouse gas than most other energy sources, especially electricity.
