How do you get more bang for your buck? By choosing highly efficient appliances for your home that’ll do more work for you at a lower cost.
These propane appliances not only are more efficient, but also deliver superior performance and comfort compared to all-electric homes.
Upgrade Your Furnace
Easily installed nearly anywhere in a home, a propane furnace can provide space heating for any size floor plan, from small residences to large custom homes. They also have a significant advantage compared with electric or heating oil units: with ratings from 90 percent to 98 percent efficient, propane furnaces are best in class, and will even reduce your carbon footprint.
Try Hybrid for Heating
If you’re looking for protection from rising fuel costs but still value comfort, consider a hybrid heating dual-fuel system. It’s a combination of an air source heat pump (ASHP) or ground source heat pump (GSHP) and a propane furnace that only kicks in during the coldest weather. In other words, you get the efficiency of the heat pump with the warmth of propane heating when the temperature plummets. A hybrid system comprised of an ASHP and a high-efficiency propane furnace can save you more than $300 annually, compared with a standard efficiency ASHP-only system.
Go Boiler or Go Home
A propane-powered high-efficiency boiler has the versatility to provide your home’s heat, hot water, and even snow melt. Energy Star-rated propane boilers have an efficiency rating of at least 85 AFUE, and those ranked Most Efficient by the EPA offer up to 19 percent energy savings over standard efficiency boilers. If you want to lower your energy costs and add value to your home, a high-efficiency boiler can help.
