Propane Furnace


Many people don’t realize that propane is a gas derived from natural gas, but there are some subtle differences when using the two fuels. The important thing about having a propane furnace is that you can count on our heating experts to know what the differences between gas and propane are and how they may affect your furnace when it comes to installation, repair, maintenance, or replacement.

So why choose propane? Not all homes have access to a natural gas line, but you may be able to obtain propane because it is delivered; this can be a positive for homeowners who want to use a fuel similar to natural gas. Another reason a homeowner may choose propane is that like natural gas, once you have propane in your home, other appliances can use the fuel, such as dryers, stoves, and hot water heaters. Propane can be a great option for your home, but the appliances using the fuel, especially your furnace, should always be handled by trained professionals.

What Makes Propane Different from Natural Gas?

It looks the same and behaves the same, so you may be wondering: what exactly are the differences between propane and natural gas? One of the main differences is that propane provides more energy per unit of volume than natural gas does; when measured in BTUs, propane produces 2.5 times more energy than natural gas. But, propane will cost you more money, so there is a trade–off.

Another difference is that propane will liquefy more quickly than natural gas, and when pressurized correctly, it can stay liquid at much higher temperatures and easily stored in tanks; natural gas needs to be at temperatures around –260 degrees to do the same thing.

Lastly, propane is a heavier gas than air or natural gas, so it has some heft to it that natural gas does not. What does this mean for your furnace? Relying on experts who understand the properties of the fuel they are working with is critical to safe and accurate repair, installation, maintenance, and replacement of parts or the unit.
