Commercial Propane

 

Commercial Heating

Commercial gas furnaces are self-contained units that supply heated air to condition a wide variety of spaces.

With zoned heating capabilities, capacity from 44,000 up to more than 1 million Btu/h, and efficiency levels of 80-98.5

percent, these furnaces can meet very specific commercial demands. And with heated air leaving a propane furnace at

a significantly warmer temperature than some electric options, spaces are heated steadily and with reliable comfort.

 

 

Hot Water

Versatile, proven, efficient, and dependable, propane storage tank water heaters offer a great solution for many commercial

applications. They are ideal for both new construction and as replacement units in existing buildings, with superior hot water

delivery, reduced energy costs, and faster recovery rates compared with standard electric storage tank units. Featuring storage

tank capacities, often 100 gallons or more, and the ability to heat water up to 180 degrees Fahrenheit, commercial storage tank

water heaters are a more robust version of common residential units.

 

Restaurants

Propane cooking equipment delivers professional-grade performance while decreasing fuel consumption and providing convenience

and functionality in any commercial kitchen. Featuring greater temperature control, instant-on burners, greater capacity levels, even heat

distribution, and design flexibility, it’s easy to see why professional chefs and designers prefer gas ranges, cooktops, and ovens over electric

models. The Energy Star program also labels several kinds of propane kitchen equipment such as ovens and fryers. Specifying this equipment

helps reduce the energy costs for establishments, adding directly to the bottom line.

 

Generators

Commercial propane generators provide supplemental power for a building’s electrical loads when the electric grid is interrupted. They are

typically installed as fully automated systems that ramp up quickly for almost immediate power and hands-off operation. Generators with

capacities from 5-400 kW are available in single and three phase configurations and voltages of 120, 240, and 480 V. Propane-powered

standby generators offer clear advantages when considering fuel storage, fuel maintenance, and reliability. The indefinite shelf life of

propane makes it an ideal fuel for generators.

 

Forklifts

Propane-powered forklifts produce 19 percent fewer emissions than gasoline forklifts and 7 percent fewer emissions than diesel forklifts.

Additionally, when you take in total site-to-source emissions, propane’s total emissions are fewer than electricity. Propane-powered forklifts

can operate more quickly than electric, which boosts productivity outdoors where faster speeds are allowed. Additionally, propane only requires

a quick and easy cylinder switch, which can be faster than charging a battery. Propane has a proven and trusted track record in material handling.

Propane fuels 670,000 forklifts in U.S. factories and warehouses. Choosing forklifts that run on American-made propane reduces dependence on

foreign oil and keeps jobs at home. With more than 70 percent of propane production coming from domestic natural gas, the U.S. produces enough

of its own propane to exceed customer demand.
