Smart Energy Saving Holiday Gift Giving - Receive tax credits and rebates on installation of energy-saving appliances before end of year

December 1, 2014- Swannanoa, NC – Haven’t found the perfect gift this holiday season? Before you hand over your credit card for something that will be forgotten the next day, have you considered giving a sustainable, American-produced, energy efficient gift that can help you to simplify, is safe, and can save you money? While that may seem like a long list, propane actually meets all of those criteria. According to the Propane Research & Education Council (PERC), more than eight million homes in America utilize propane as an advanced energy source. Not only for home heating, propane is used by many household appliances that could be great for gifting this holiday season.

Cooktops, clothes dryers, space heaters, fireplaces, gas logs, water heaters, generators and outdoor heating and lighting are great home-improvement products that save you time and money. Not only can propane appliances lower your energy bills, but you can also capitalize on incentives and rebates for safe installation with your purchase by going to the PERC (Propane Education and Research Council) Programs and Incentives page and seeing what is available in your state.

Other key aspects that make a propane appliance smart for any home are:

o On a nationwide average, propane costs less than electricity on a per-BTU basis according to the U.S. Department of Energy
o A propane-powered dryer gets clothes dry in 1/3 less time than an electric dryer, saving you time and money. Less time in the dryer means less wear and tear on your clothes and reduced static cling, wrinkling, and shrinkage.
o A propane tankless water heater conserves energy and increases efficiency to reduce a family’s energy bills by 30%. With a space saving design, a tankless water heater supplies you and your family with endless hot water.
o Save money by heating the room you’re in, instead of the whole house. A propane Space Heater provides consistent warmth at every level of the room, eliminating temperature swings or cold spots, while staying quiet and cool to the touch.
o Eliminate the hassle of firewood while saving money with a propane fireplace. A propane-powered vent-free fireplace performs at a 99% efficiency rate by pushing heat out into the room instead of up the chimney.
o Cooking has never been easier or safer than with a propane range or cooktop. Even when the power is out, you can enjoy more accurate cooking temperatures and a true simmer setting for the perfect meal every time.
o A propane generator assures your family will not be interrupted by storms and power outages. Unlike gasoline or diesel, propane has an unlimited shelf life, so an investment in a generator is an investment in peace of mind.
o 100% of the propane used in the USA is made in America, increasing our energy security.
