LPG Central Heating Sales & Service

Orion Propane Services is your best source in helping you design and install the perfect central heating system for your new home, or remodel. Whether installing a boiler (Hot Water and Hydronic Systems), or Furnaces (Hot Air and Duct Work System), OPS can help you choose the best unit to get the job done.

If you’re planning to build a new home or renovate an older one, you may be weighing the benefits of a LPG verses oil boilers and furnaces. Which is the best type of heating for your home?

Central heating with gas has become a tremendously popular option over the past few decades and seems to only be increasing over the past few years. The cost and efficiency of these gas heating units, along with the minimal space required (especially wall-hung boilers) has been the most attractive factors in choosing gas-fired central heating systems. Advancement in technology and new manufacturing materials have also been a deciding influence toward gas units. Gas-fired boilers and furnaces have steadily become more reliable, quieter and above all, efficient. Even the way these units are vented has made them more appealing to the homeowner. Gas-fired boilers (Hot Water and Hydronic Systems) and Furnaces (Hot Air and Duct Work System) using both standard and concentric PVC venting have eliminated the need of venting units via chimneys. This allows the units to be installed with multiple location options in the home.

Though floor model gas boiler units are still available to the consumer, it’s the wall-hung units that are overwhelmingly more popular in new construction and remodels. The small footprint used by hanging the gas boiler on the wall opens up valuable floor space which floor units require.

Heating/Domestic Hot Water Combination Boilers (or Combi Units): This configuration offers both functions in one machine by not only heating the home, but also providing hot water. It can be debated whether, or not having one piece of equipment providing both functions is the best choice. Yes, in most cases combination heating/domestic hot water units are slightly less expense than separate function units, but in the long term are they as practical? The combination units tend to work more than a separated system featuring a single ‘heat only’ boiler and a separate on demand water heater. With the separated option you get a water heater designed specifically for the purpose of making water hot when needed and a home heating unit that works far less adding to its longevity. In some cases the ‘heat only’ boiler will have to work only during the colder months. Another advantage of having a separated system is when something goes wrong with one function of the combination unit, you’re less likely to be without the other function as well.
  
Central heating with propane, or oil? Naturally, most homeowners consider the cost of fuel when choosing. Oil has historically been the most expensive mode of home heating. Propane has many othe benefits over oil. Propane is much cleaner burning and not as intense heat producer as oil. Both of those facts result in it being better for the environment and easier on the heating unit, which helps with longevity. Storage of propane is outdoors and does not take up valuable room in your basement, as do large oil tanks in the majority of the oil heating installations. Nor is there the risk of permanent odor in the home from possible oil leaks.

Let OPS help open doors to the important decisions you will have to make when planning the central heating possibilities.
