Heating with Propane
Propane gas or LP (Liquid Propane) has been on the increase in the
last ten years as an alternate source of home heating fuel. Natural
gas and propane gas should not be confused with each other. Natural
gas is a product of the environment and propane gas is a by-product
of crude oil. Propane gas gives you warmth where you want it.
Propane Gas room heaters come in a wide range of sizes and styles
for those areas of your home where you want warmth on demand or
need extra heat. They are available in vented and non vented models
to increase their flexibility. Some heaters look and operate like
wood fireplaces or stoves but much more efficient and cost about
a third to operate. These units add warmth and aesthetic value to
your home. The versatility of room or space heaters is what makes
them such popular, practical appliances.
These heaters can also serve as essential back-ups during emergencies,
supplement a central heating system or provide heat for such areas
as garages and workshops. You may call our service department for
assistance in the purchase and installation of propane heaters.
