Things to look for in your next furnace:
High-efficiency propane furnaces heat air to roughly 120 degrees Fahrenheit, which is significantly warmer than the temperatures delivered by electric heat pumps. The hot air produced then cools as it circulates throughout the home. Because any temperature that feels cooler than body temperature feels cold, you and your family will appreciate the warmer delivery air of a propane furnace. In addition, they also heat more evenly than electric-powered models. This allows for consistent, comfortable heating throughout your entire home during even the coldest weather.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, heating and cooling accounts for approximately 56 percent of energy consumption in a typical American home. A high-efficiency furnace can make a significant dent in your monthly energy bills and essentially pay for itself through energy savings over time. In a recent study conducted by PERC, it was found that a high-efficiency propane furnace — in an existing home in the cold climate zone and the mixed climate zone — has an average payback period of two years compared to installing a standard-efficiency furnace, when the furnace’s first cost and annual energy cost are factored in.
High-performance propane furnaces offer best-in-class efficiency — or AFUE — levels. In fact, many models deliver AFUE ratings of 98 percent. Plus, over time, propane furnaces maintain their efficiency better than systems like electric heat pumps.
