For My Home / Outside Cooking
Propane is a preferred choice for many consumers when cooking outdoors. Propane barbecues are effective, user-friendly and easy to maintain, whether you are in the city, in the countryside, on the water, camping or travelling on the road.
Many models are available on the market. Their size and power adapt to all needs and lifestyles. Accessories such as spits, infrared burners, wood chip tanks or smooth plates will add variety to the experience. Propane barbecues can be traditional, built-in or designed as a large cooktop.
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.
Propane has long been a favourite source of energy to power portable barbecues and camping stoves for camping or in cottages. Propane allows for the storage of a large amount of energy in a small space. Small one-pound cylinders are available on the market for light-duty camping applications. Note that cylinders can only be filled by a professional.
