New to this year’s Remodeling Show, September 15-17, at the Baltimore Convention Center, is the Propane Innovation Pavilion in booth 2712, where remodelers and construction professionals can learn more about new propane-fueled equipment, appliances, and vehicles and participate in training workshops.
“Propane plays a critical role in efficiently fueling tankless water heaters and provides a reliable backup energy source,” said Tracy Burleson, director of residential programs for PERC. “PERC is assisting remodelers and construction professionals with training and information on energy-efficient appliances, so they can provide cost-effective solutions to homeowners.”
Show attendees will have the opportunity to participate in two on-site workshops, which are taking center stage at the Propane Innovation Pavilion — “Water Heaters: Retrofitting from Standard Electric or Oil to Gas Tankless” and “Specifying Propane Standby Generators: Installation and Value Considerations.”
The courses will take place at the following times:
“Water Heaters: Retrofitting from Standard Electric or Oil to Gas Tankless”
Wednesday, September 15: 12 – 12:45 p.m. and 3 – 3:45 p.m.
Thursday, September 16: 12 – 12:45 p.m.
Friday, September 17: 10 – 10:45 a.m.
“Specifying Propane Standby Generators: Installation and Value Considerations”
Wednesday, September 15: 1:30 – 2:15 p.m.
Thursday, September 16: 1:30 – 2:15 p.m. and 3 – 3:45 p.m.
Friday, September 17: 11:30 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.
To demonstrate the use of propane-fueled appliances in the home, PERC is partnering with leading manufacturers Rinnai and Kohler to display energy-efficient propane-fueled appliances. Rinnai products on display in the Propane Innovation Pavilion include a tankless water heater with condensing water heating technology, a solar reheat kit that allows hot water to flow even when its cloudy, a direct vent furnace, a condensing wall-mount boiler, and a hydronic furnace. Other featured products include a Kohler 20-kilowatt home generator with a transfer switch that eliminates the need for a second distribution panel and additional wiring for residential standby generators.
