Build Efficiency into a Home with Propane Hydronic Heating

Energy efficiency is trendy right now for a reason. It saves homeowners money, is better for the environment, and often saves space. A smart way to ensure your home is delivering these benefits and more is to pair a propane tankless water heater with a hydronic furnace.

This two-appliance system can achieve efficiency as high as 96 percent! By borrowing heat from a tankless water heater to deliver steady, comfortable space heating throughout a home, hydronic furnaces save space and energy.

HOW IT WORKS

  • A hydronic air handler borrows hot water from a tankless water heater.
  • The air handler moves the hot water through a coil to pick up its heat and blows it through the ductwork and into the house.
  • The propane- or gas-fueled tankless water heater supplies unlimited hot water so the system pumps a constant flow through the coil and delivers steady, comfortable heat to the home.
  • At the same time, the tankless water heater performs its primary job without interruption, heating the water that is piped to showers, sinks, dishwashers, and washing machines.
