Courses about space heating with propane
With a variety of options including boilers, furnaces, radiant floor heating, and more, propane is a smart choice for your next job. Propane heating systems like those described in these training courses can help your customers slash energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions.
In colder climates, space heating represents almost half of the annual energy costs for a residence, so selecting the right heating system for new construction or retrofits is an important decision. This course presents highlights and conclusions of a 2013 research study performed to identify the best residential heating system options based on several key variables.
For almost a century, heating oil has served as a durable home-heating fuel, especially in the Northeast. However, during the past few decades, heating oil has consistently lost market share at a rate of about 2 percent per year as propane, natural gas, and electricity have increased in popularity. In this course, learn why propane has continued to gain popularity and what you can do to keep up with the demand for heating oil conversions.
Combined Heat and Power (CHP) systems, as the name implies, serve dual purposes. First, they use a propane or natural gas generator to create electricity. Simultaneously, the heat from the engine is captured and used to warm the building or create hot water, reducing energy costs. The electricity produced from the generator is used by the home, further reducing energy costs.
Environmental impact, equipment sizing, efficiency, and initial costs are all important factors for pros and their customers to consider when converting from heating oil to an alternative energy source. In this course, learn why propane is a superior alternative to heating oil and how it matches up against other energy sources.
