    A growing number of farms are using propane-powered building and water heaters. Propane keeps plants and animal containment areas heated during cold winter months, cleans, and sanitizes facilities such as greenhouses and dairy milking parlors. It's a valuable addition for farmers who need efficient heat.

    PERC has partnered with heater manufacturer L.B. White to develop a more efficient propane-powered heating system for swine confinement buildings. This new heater uses variable-rate technology with electronic controls to increase cost savings and improve animal productivity and health. Learn more. 

    PERC has also helped L.B. White develop test its efficient Therma Grow greenhouse heater. The Therma Grow system can provide heat at 99 percent efficiency.
