Consumer Information

What is Propane?
For over 100 years propane has been warming and powering America.  Now one of the most widely used fuels in the world, learn all about it.

Tankless Water Heaters
Water heating is one of the biggest users of energy.  Tankless water heaters only work "on demand."  If no hot water is called for, the unit is not burning fuel.  When hot water is called for, the unit immediately begins to supply a nearly endless supply.  These units can be used in residences and by staging multiple units in commercial applications as well.  But how do they work?  Click the link to find out how.

Video Library
The video library contains a number of short video assets for marketers to use when talking to potential customers.
