Ensure that your guests ‘Sleep Tight, and Don’t Let the Bedbugs Bite!’

The Cicadas are coming this Spring and there is nothing we can do about it. But bedbugs, that’s a different story. Unlike Cicadas that only surface once every seventeen years,  bedbugs are a constant threat, infesting homes and businesses by hiding and reproducing in small crevices, such as mattress seams and the spaces around baseboards. Such situations concern owners and operators of hotels, apartment buildings, college dormitories/residential halls, and hospitals. We have a propane solution! PERC (Propane Education and Research Council) is offering a propane heat and power incentive to assist you in the bedbugs fight.  Referred to as the Bedbug Heat Treatment System, it is unlike other bedbug control methods that use pesticides or steam, heat-based solutions seek to treat the entire space or building, not just sleeping areas.

Here are some fast facts about propane-powered bedbug control: Thermal remediation uses heat instead of chemicals to control bedbug infestations. Chemical treatments can be harmful to human health, among other things, whereas thermal remediation provides safe, environmentally friendly way to control the infestation.

PERC’s website advises exactly how to participate in their new incentive:

To take part in the Propane Heat and Power Incentive program, participants must apply, be accepted, and agree to provide performance data on the equipment. The participants must purchase the propane system and be a U.S. construction professional, homeowner, business, or other qualifying entity. The product itself must meet program requirements, such as:

  • In the case of generators and CHPs, the unit must be used on-site at a primary residence or full-time business.
  • Generation units must run a minimum amount per year: 400 hours for a generator set, 6,000 hours for a CHP system.
  • In the case of generators, the unit must be used in an off-grid application or in combination with a renewable energy system.

The incentive amount provided depends on the product purchased. The program will pay the participant the entire incentive amount upon proof of purchase.

For full details and eligibility requirements, download and view the program guide. To apply to participate in the program, please complete the online application form.

There’s never been a better time to take control of bedbugs infesting your property, with an incentive to assist. Wish you guests or tenants a good night, and be confident that they will sleep tight!
