Discover Propane Home Heating Uses
with Superior Propane

Propane home heating is delivered through various heating systems including furnaces, boilers, and hybrid heating systems. Propane provides comfort, performance and efficiency for your family and your budget. Transform your home with a propane heating system that fits your needs:

Propane Furnace

A propane furnace, also known as forced air heating, distributes warm air from the unit through ducts and vents to each room in the home. Propane furnaces are high-efficiency and deliver comfortable, consistent heat, no matter what the Canadian winter throws at you. It can provide space heating for any size floor plan, from a small cottage to a large custom home. With efficiency ratings as high as 98%, propane furnaces are Energy Star rated and can reduce your carbon footprint. If you’re currently heating with an oil or electric furnace, converting to propane is quick and easy.

Propane Boiler

A propane boiler, also known as hydronic heating, is a form of radiant heating that uses tubing to run a hot liquid beneath your floor, along baseboard heaters, or through radiators to heat your home. The most efficient propane boilers are 95% efficient or greater. They are versatile enough to provide your home’s heat, hot water, and even melt snow and ice through heated sidewalk or driveway systems! If you want to lower your energy costs and add value to your home, a high-efficiency boiler can do both.

Hybrid Heating Systems

A hybrid heating system combines an electric heat pump and a propane furnace. This can be beneficial if you live in an area where electricity prices are low. When the temperature gets lower and the heat pump is no longer effective, propane takes over. You get the efficiency of a heat pump with the warmth of propane heating, which is more comfortable, less expensive to operate, and less intrusive than baseboard backup heating.
