MOPERC (Missouri Propane Education & Research Council) has recently published a 3D Virtual Tour of a new propane-powered home in Sedalia at propanehomepro.com/virtualtour. MOPERC invites all Missourians to take a virtual walk through this one-of-a-kind propane home. Using 3D technology, viewers can experience what the propane lifestyle is all about from the comfort of their own homes.
As a component of MOPERC’s Propane HomePro program, and in partnership with Josh and Kyra Brant of Sedalia, this new custom home showcases the many benefits of propane living. Using high-efficiency propane gas appliances for major applications provides optimal energy output and unmatched performance for homeowners, in addition to reducing a home’s carbon footprint.
MOPERC will donate $1 for every unique page view of this 3D virtual home tour to the Brendan Eisenmenger Student Impact Fund, which supports the Sedalia School District 200, and matching direct donations up to $5,000.
The home is located just a few minutes away from the city of Sedalia and surrounded by 20 acres of woods and rolling hills.
Propane is an ideal source of energy for rural Missouri homes because it is dependable, efficient and affordable. Natural gas is not available in many areas of rural Missouri, but propane can safely be delivered and stored on-site at a home. In extreme cold temperatures, electric heat pump systems cannot keep up, but high-efficiency propane furnaces provide a steady stream of warm heat from the registers, regardless of the outdoor temperature.
In addition to a high-performance propane furnace, cooking range and fireplace, this home also features a propane-powered Generac 22kW backup generator. With a propane standby generator, homeowners will not be left in the dark during a power outage. In the event power is lost, this generator will kick on automatically within a matter of seconds.
