Home Heating and AC

Forced-air Heating Systems

Modern propane-powered forced-air central heating systems are extremely efficient. They provide constant heating, regardless of the outside temperature.

Many appliances are Energy Star certified and can achieve an energy efficiency rating of 98%. They can be paired with a heat pump to take over when the temperature drops below its efficiency level.

Propane appliances are less expensive than electrical systems. They can reduce heating costs by 25%. In addition, they are reliable and have a service life of at least 20 years.
Manufacturers also offer appliances that can heat one room at a time and direct ventilation heaters.


High-efficiency propane boilers can be used to heat radiator water and radiant floor systems. The water contained in the boiler is heated and then travels through ducts that feed radiators, convectors or pipes installed directly in a concrete slab. The water circulates and returns to the boiler to be heated again before starting another cycle.
The most efficient propane boilers have a minimum energy efficiency rating of 95%. They are versatile enough to provide heating and hot water in homes and can even melt snow and ice thanks to sidewalk or driveway heating systems.

Air Heaters

Propane air heaters are used to heat large spaces such as garages, whether they are attached to the house or independent. These appliances are wall-mounted or suspended to produce instantaneous heat locally.
Practical, cost-effective and safe, the many propane air heater models offer several advantages:

  • They come in a wide range of powers and heating capacities – performance can reach 97%.
  • They provide for greater energy efficiency than central heating systems because they diffuse heat at the desired time and place.
  • They generally require less maintenance and have a longer service life than electric heating systems.
  • They are 15 to 25% more efficient than electrical systems for equal Btu production.

Air Conditioning Systems

Not only is propane increasingly used to heat homes, cottages or RVs, but it can also power a wall-mounted heat pump, a wall-mounted air conditioner and an air exchanger.
By switching from a liquid to a gaseous state, propane becomes extremely cold, which makes it an excellent non-toxic cooling agent with an ozone-depleting potential of 0 and a global warming potential of 3.
When used as a cooling agent, especially in commercial or residential ice machines, propane allows energy savings of 40 to 60%.
Additionally, modern heat pumps are designed to maximize safety with flammable products encapsulated and components separated from each other.
