Debunking the Myths About Propane Heating Systems Debunking the Myths About Propane Heating Systems
Don’t let these common misconceptions keep customers from taking advantage of propane’s reliability and versatility for home heating.
MYTH 1: HEAT PUMPS ARE EFFICIENT IN COLD CLIMATES.
TRUTH: A high-efficiency propane furnace alone can cover all of a homeowner’s heating needs, or it can be paired with a heat pump and used when temperatures drop.
MYTH 2: GEOTHERMAL OFFERS LOW-COST HEATING.
TRUTH: Geothermal is expensive to install, with payback periods longer than many owners stay in their homes. A high-efficiency propane furnace delivers consistent heat with a lower upfront cost.
MYTH 3: COMFORT LEVELS DON’T VARY BY HEATING TYPE.
TRUTH: Propane furnaces deliver consistent hot-air supply temperatures throughout the heating season, regardless of the weather outside, and they can be zoned to heat rooms to owners’ preferences.
MYTH 4: PROPANE HAS NO ADVANTAGE OVER HEATING OIL.
TRUTH: Propane is lightweight and clean-burning, and its tanks can be buried to hide them from view, making it an attractive option in areas where oil is common.
PROPANE IS AN EFFICIENT, RELIABLE FUEL SOURCE FOR A RANGE OF HOME-HEATING APPLICATIONS.
“A high-efficiency propane furnace can be installed nearly anywhere in the home and delivers consistent heat with a more affordable upfront cost.”
