A propane gas furnace keeps your home warm during the coldest Missouri winters

Missourians can choose from several types of propane gas furnaces, including central furnaces, wall furnaces and combo-heaters.

A propane furnace provides efficient and safe space heating for any size floor plan, from small residences to large custom homes. Propane furnaces, even ultra-high-efficiency models, fit into tight spaces, even a closet! Many models can be installed and vented in a variety of ways. And most propane gas furnaces feature electronic ignitions. This activates the burners only when fuel is needed, keeping your gas furnace cost down. Electronic ignition also enhances safety because it eliminates the need for standing pilot lights.

Benefits of Propane Furnaces

Propane gas furnaces are best in their class in terms of efficiency, with ratings from 90% to 98% efficient.

Propane furnaces consistently deliver heat in the 120–140° range, even when the outdoor temperature drops. Older heat pumps in Missouri often supply heated air at 95°, which is colder than your body temperature.

When properly maintained, propane furnaces can last up to 10 years longer than electric heat pumps.

Propane furnaces produce enough thermal energy to heat your home without the need for a backup system.
