LP Gas Heating Overview
Liquefied petroleum gas (LP) is a fuel alternative. It makes a small percentage of energy in the U.S.; it’s a mixture of gases and contains either butane or propane. Gas heating systems work with either fans or radiant flooring. They can be made to heat the entire house or specific rooms. Though LP gas is the less common choice, it is still used in millions of American homes.
LP gas heating usually consists of a boiler that heats water. Radiators then carry the heat, and the same system usually heats the home’s water supply, too. LP gas is an efficient fuel type. However, refueling usually involves delivery and significant storage space, which is another reason why it is less popular now for urban homes. Rural homes sometimes find the gas system efficient, however, and the modern ability to auto-order fuel makes it easier to maintain a supply. LP gas is also a clean fuel, emitting lower amounts of carbon than some other fuel types.
LP Gas Heating Installation and Repair
Like system, LP gas heating needs maintenance, and eventually repair. A heating professional is trained and certified to handle all of the common and uncommon heating systems, and that includes the lesser-used LP gas heating system. If you’re having trouble with your gas heating system, it is always best to call an expert because LP gas is highly flammable and you do not want to risk a fire or explosion due to an improperly-repaired system, or issue that was left to worsen.
