Gas Heating

gas heating in Missoula

Gas heating can mean heating with natural gas or propane. Natural gas is mined like oil. It undergoes minimal processing after being extracted from the earth, and contains a number of different gases —primarily propane, butane, ethane and methane. Propane is separated from natural gas during processing, and is stored and distributed as a liquid; LPG stands for liquid propane gas.

Like most gas-burning appliances, gas-fired furnaces and boilers can easily be modified to burn propane or natural gas fuel. A furnace will supply hot air to a forced-air heating system; a boiler supplies hot water for heating and/or washing.

Propane contains more energy than natural gas, so producing a given amount of heat will require less propane than natural gas. However, propane is also more expensive than natural gas, offsetting its higher energy content. The choice between the two fuels often depends on what is available locally. Natural gas arrives in homes via underground pipes.

Propane is stored in one or more tanks located outside the house; tanks are refilled as necessary by a truck dispatched from a local propane dealer. Small propane containers —the kind that fuel outdoor grills—can be brought in for refills by the homeowner.

Propane and natural gas produce less pollution than fuel oil when burned, so environmental advocates tend to prefer gas over oil. Also, the planned development of natural gas reserves in the U.S. promises to make the price of natural gas and propane more stable than the price of fuel oil.
