    Specifying Propane Standby Generators: Installation and Value Considerations

    In the last 10 years, the demand for electricity has increased exponentially due to population growth and the increased use of power-thirsty devices, such as computers and flat-screen TVs. For homeowners in many areas, this has resulted in electrical service outages that cause major disruptions. A standby generator can ensure a homeowner's quality of life by keeping the electricity flowing in the event of a power failure, and it can even serve as a primary energy source for homes built off the grid. In this course, learn why many builders and homeowners are choosing to install propane standby generators and what to consider when selecting the best generator for the job. Enroll

    Analysis of Residential Energy Efficiency Upgrades

    The energy use of a home varies widely depending on a number of factors, including the climate, number of occupants, resident behavior, and mechanical systems. Because there are so many contributing factors, decisions on where and when to invest in energy-efficient equipment can be tricky for a homeowner, especially when it comes to paying a premium for higher efficiency equipment. In this course, which focuses on the typical energy use for average, single-family detached households, learn more about what factors to take into account when considering an upgrade of a home’s energy system or appliances.

    Residential Water Heaters under the New 2015 Federal Standards

    Water heaters are often the second largest energy user in the home, costing residents hundreds of dollars each year. Beginning in April 2015, the updated “NAECA” standards from the U.S. Department of Energy increased water heater efficiency requirements, driving major product changes in the U.S. market. “NAECA” stands for the National Appliance Energy Conservation Act and includes the federal regulations for water heater minimum efficiency levels.

    Against this backdrop of new standards, products, and decision-making factors, this course will review a detailed analysis of water heating systems. This analysis compares water heating technologies based on their energy, economic, and environmental performance, with a focus on the performance of propane-based systems relative to electric and heating oil alternatives. The course also reviews the new federal standards for water heaters, and describes the market implications for both new construction and replacements.

    Heating Oil Conversion: Exploring Propane as a Viable Alternative Energy Source

    Heating oil, also known as fuel oil or Number 2 oil, has been a popular choice for homeowners since the early 1900s. As an alternative to coal or wood as a fuel source for boilers and domestic hot water production, heating oil proved to be a reliable, clean and economical choice for millions of consumers, especially in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic where other fuel types were often more difficult to acquire or were more expensive. But, it is not an environmentally conscious fuel choice.

    Propane gas has the same remote fuel benefit, coupled with fewer emissions and higher efficiency equipment. This course details economic and environmental reasons why switching from heating oil to propane is a good choice for homeowners, residential builders or remodelers.
