During the worst of winters, you count on your furnace to keep you and your family warm against the cold outside. For most people, winter is also the most expensive time of the year due to the increase in their heating bill.
At Foster Fuels, we provide energy, cost and carbon savings for both new and existing homes through the use of our propane furnaces. We also know that you need affordable reliability – that’s why we created the Autofill program to insure that your tank never runs out of propane and you never run out of heat. Contact a sales representative today to learn how you can set up Autofill.
Choosing a Furnace
When deciding on which energy source to use to fuel your furnace, you can choose between propane and natural gas or heating oil. Even though they provide ample heat, electric heat pumps over time cannot maintain their efficiency like propane furnaces. In fact, high efficiency propane furnaces are rated between 90 to 98 % efficient, qualifying for Energy Star’s Most Efficient label, whereas heating oil furnaces do not. Propane also has a smaller carbon footprint than other systems, which uses its outdoor – air combustion system to make it safer and more efficient than traditional natural-draft furnaces. Overall, propane furnaces are economical to operate and better for the environment.
Propane furnaces offer best-in-class efficiency to deliver distinctive comfort to today’s homeowner at the most affordable prices. Not only that, they are found to be the most affordable to purchase and install compared to alternative systems. Their direct-vented units take all air needed for combustion from the outdoors, which improves efficiency and helps assure the home’s indoor air quality. They even have a multistage burner system and a variable speed blower to the furnace, heating the home steadily and comfortably for any sized floor plan.
