- Propane-powered heat pumps are a greener alternative for heating air and water in homes and businesses.
- Heat pumps work by gathering heat from the outside and piping it into a building.
- The EU aims to replace a third of gas and oil boilers in residential buildings with heat pumps by 2030.
- Heat pumps are more expensive than fossil-fired boilers and work best in well-insulated buildings.
- Most heat pumps currently use hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) as refrigerants, which are potent greenhouse gases.
Propane-powered heat pumps are greener
Propane-powered heat pumps offer a greener solution for heating air and water in buildings, but face challenges such as high costs and the need for well-insulated spaces. Most heat pumps currently use environmentally damaging hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) as refrigerants.
