The benefits of a propane gas heater
Looking to replace your old heating system? You’re probably wondering which type of heating system is best for your home and offers the best value for your money. You want to make sure your decision is safe and reliable? Why not choose a propane gas heater? Like all types of heating systems, it has its advantages and disadvantages, but it is definitely a way to efficiently heat your home. Here is an overview of the main features of heating with propane.
Propane gas is a light hydrocarbon, composed of carbon and hydrogen, and is produced by refining crude oil. Propane is stored in liquid form in pressurized tanks.
The main advantages:
- It is a versatile source of energy.
- It is easy to provide because it is simple to transport.
- It is easily stored in large quantities (from several months to a year depending on your use) in a tank placed outside or buried, resistant to corrosion and bad weather (which limits the risks of leaks). A propane gas tank has an average lifespan of 30 years.
- It offers an excellent energy supply by diffusing warm air almost instantly in your home for added comfort.
- It is efficient, effective, and reliable: it provides fast, warm, and constant heat to your entire home instantly and for a long time.
- The heating system is easy to install and maintain.
- Ecological: Propane gas is non-toxic and low in carbon. This type of heating is odourless and clean, providing a healthier atmosphere since its combustion emits virtually no particles, very little carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides, or acid rain.
- The price of propane gas on the market is very competitive.
- The heater operates without electricity so, in the event of a power outage, your home will remain at a comfortable temperature.
Needless to say, the advantages of propane gas as a heating source far outweigh the disadvantages. Plus, you can also connect it to other appliances, such as a stove or water heater.
