Facts about High-Efficiency Propane Heating

Steady Heat
Propane furnaces provide a steady heating temperature of 115 to 125 degrees, regardless of outdoor temperature.

Greater Efficiency
Propane furnaces capture additional heat from the combustion gases and use this to increase the heat transfer of the furnace for greater efficiency.

Energy Star Rating
High-efficiency propane furnaces qualify for Energy Star’s Most Efficient label (95 AFUE level or higher).

Two-Stage or Variable Speed Units
Many high-efficiency propane furnaces are two-stage or variable speed units, so the furnace heats the home steadily and comfortably.

Propane can fuel just about any system, whether it’s inside your home, in your backyard or on the road.

Propane Fireplaces vs. Wood
Propane fireplaces are much more efficient wood-burning fireplaces. Propane fireplaces offer Fireplace Efficiency (FE) ratings over 90 percent. Wood-burning fireplaces operate at about 15 percent FE. In addition to efficiency, propane fireplaces are much cleaner and provide a real-flame flicker at the convenience of flipping a switch.

Faster Desired Temperature
Propane furnaces achieve desired temperatures much faster than alternatives.
