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.”
