Space Heating

Heating units include boilers (especially for large buildings), infrared heaters for large open spaces (such as transit stations and garage bays), make-up air systems that pass incoming air through heat exchangers, and unit heaters for retail stores, garages, and other spaces that require large volumes of hot air.

Vehicle Fuel

Propane vehicles have a high octane rating and low carbon and oil contamination that can help lead longer engine life.

Propane in Agriculture
