Why switch to propane

Energy-efficient propane has become the “fuel of choice” for savvy homeowners and renters. Compared to oil and electric energy sources, propane offers you:

propane

1. A cleaner, safer alternative

Propane is a safe, clean and non-toxic fuel alternative listed in the Clean Air Act and Energy Policy Act. With tight controls placed on pumps to eliminate any risk of overfill, propane is safer to store and transfer than any other fossil fuel. Propane appliances emit lower Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions than electric water heaters.

2. More affordable

The cost per litre of propane usually less than that of heating oil. Additionally, because it is a cleaner burning fuel, propane appliances require substantially less maintenance than oil furnaces. Due to its lower carbon intensity, Federal Carbon Taxes levied on Propane are customarily lower when compared to heating oil.

3. More everyday uses

Propane is perhaps best known as a fuel of choice for BBQ tanks, but it’s far more versatile than that! Did you know that propane can also power your home’s heat pump, furnace/boiler, water heater, space heaters, fireplace, gas range, refrigerator, clothes dryer, pool heater, generator, and more?

4. Easy Installation and delivery

We’ll come to your home and provide everything you need, including:
-Installation
-Regular maintenance/service
-Free in-home energy assessments
-Automatic delivery
-Conversions from other energy sources to propane
-Equipment financing

5. Improved Performance

Propane contains more energy per cubic metre than natural gas. For home heating, this provides a more consistent and even distribution of air temperature supply.

6. Equipments last longer

Propane gas furnaces and heaters last longer - up to 20 years on average - compared to 14 years for electric heating pumps. A longer life cycle for equipment means less waste in landfills.

Using your propane furnace as a back-up to an electric heat pump will reduce your energy costs. Heat pumps lose efficiency when the temperature falls below 4°C. A dual fuel system can increase the cost-effectiveness of heat pump technology while simultaneously improving indoor quality.
Ambiance meets heat efficiency. Add elegance to any room with an easy-to-use, heat efficient propane fireplace.
Maximize the space in any room with a propane space heater. For those hard-to-heat places, a propane space heater occupies little space and can even be wall-mounted.
Ultramar only leases propane tanks. Each Ultramar tank is delivered and installed by a qualified, licensed, 3rd party HVAC technician.
Residential water heating is typically the third largest energy use in the home. Some propane water heaters offer ‘on-demand’ hot water, eliminating stand-by heat loss, which can add up to significant net savings.
