For My Business / Propane boilers
Boilers are used to produce hot water or steam for use in farm buildings and greenhouses. These furnaces can be used in combination with back-up systems such as air heaters or propane radiators to create heat in a precise and localized way. They are available in a wide range of thermal capacities, in buildings of various sizes, to increase heating capacity or to create back-up systems. The water temperature for heating systems can reach up to 94°C (200°F).
Propane boilers can also be used for hot water radiant floor systems. The pipes are placed in the ground under a layer of concrete, gravel, sand or earth. Heating pipes form loops covering the entire surface of the building. The water temperature can reach 40°C (104°F).
The furnaces are energy-efficient appliances, with many new propane boilers having Energy Star certification and an annual energy efficiency rating of more than 90%.
