Propane supplies steady, low-emission heat for greenhouses, fueling furnaces and boilers to maintain ideal temperatures and soil conditions. It also assists with dehumidification, which promotes plant health and improves product quality.

Benefits of Propane Greenhouse Heaters

Versatile Heaters

Both installed and portable propane units are available, providing growers with customizable, convenient choices without relying on the local electrical grid.

Energy Efficient

Farmers depend on propane-fueled Combined Heat and Power (CHP) systems because they can run at 70-80 percent efficiency, utilizing less fuel to generate each unit of energy output.

climate Friendly

Propane-fueled Combined Heat and Power (CHP) systems produce 44% lower greenhouse gas emissions than grid electricity, making propane an environmentally friendly option.

Do greenhouse gases trap heat?

The simple explanation is that greenhouses transform sunlight into heat energy. Sunlight entering the greenhouse is absorbed by the plants inside, where it gets converted to heat. Experts recommend maintaining a steady 80-85°F in greenhouses. Propane’s portability, along with the variety of permanent and temporary greenhouse heating appliances available, enables growers to operate their greenhouses year-round virtually anywhere.

How can I switch from electricity to propane?

Transitioning from electric to propane heat provides more savings, better performance, increased security, and higher efficiency. Your LP Account Manager can guide you through the straightforward steps required to convert your system to clean-burning propane gas.

How much propane does an average greenhouse use?

Propane usage depends on a combination of greenhouse size and propane appliance variables. Calculate your greenhouse area and BTUs with the courtesy calculator on
