Whether you’re living at the Lake, or in the country, Walker’s Heating & Cooling Systems in association with Kelly’s Propane is your ‘peace of mind’ partner in home comfort.
For More Than Just Heating
Fireplaces, cooking, laundry
Reliable, efficient, dependable and proven, Kelly’s Propane has been the ‘go to source’ for home heating fuels since 1922. Today’s modern homes and cottages rely on propane for more than just heating – from the ambience of a friendly propane fireplace and the pleasure of cooking on a propane stove to the efficiency of a propane clothes dryer, and the convenience of directly connecting your BBQ, propane offers so much!
When it comes to heating, few fuels can match the efficiency, performance, costs and low maintenance needs of high efficiency propane furnaces. Propane use is growing rapidly in rural parts of Ontario (and Canada), replacing traditional, more costly sources of heat energy. Because propane is odourless in its natural form, an additive (ethyl mercaptan) is used to give it the rotten egg or sulphur smell so leaks can be more easily detected. Propane is clean burning and non-toxic. Using propane can help cut your heating and hot water bills! Propane water heaters are twice as efficient as electric models, and high-efficiency furnaces can help keep your fuel costs low.
Peace of Mind
In association with Kelly’s Propane, Walker’s delivers the savings, comfort and peace-of-mind you get from our exceptional dedication to technical excellence and customer satisfaction.
The by-products of burning propane are water vapour and carbon dioxide. Propane appliances are more durable than electric appliances. Propane pool heaters can heat more water in less time than electric pool heaters. Propane fuel is versatile, cleanburning, non-toxic, and it serves a wide variety of purposes. It is an economical fuel option for furnaces, hot water heaters, fireplaces, cook ranges, pool heaters and household appliances. As one of the most versatile, clean, economical and safe fuel sources around, propane provides many key benefits such as:
- Heating your home with savings of up to 35% over electricity.
- An almost endless supply of hot water.
- Igniting your fireplace with the flick of a switch.
- Fueling your cooking range with instant heat and even temperature.
- Operating your clothes dryer.
- Efficiently heating your spa or swimming pool.
- Making barbecuing easier and more enjoyable.
Convenient and Portable
Propane is convenient because it’s portable. Cylinders can be transported, installed and refilled nearly anywhere. Propane heats water nearly 40% faster than electricity. That means less energy use and faster recovery times. Propane is environmentally friendly with very low sulphur content and zero lead content. Burning propane produces less greenhouse gas emissions that most other types of fuel.

If you’re looking for an energy efficient way to warm the water in your home, consider the John Wood ENERGY STARR Power Vent water heaters.

How to Choose
When choosing the right residential water heater, measure the space where the existing water heater now sits (including necessary plumbing, venting and gas connections) and note the existing tank size. Tank size and BTU input is key to ensuring plenty of hot water during peak usage. All sizes are presented in Litres and US Gallons.
Children or teens? Have you added or upgraded a whirlpool, dishwasher, clothes washer or extra bathroom since you have moved in? If you answered YES, consider moving up to a larger tank capacity.

oFF-Grid Propane Appliances
off-Grid Propane Appliances
Let Walker’s Heating & Cooling Systems help you take off-grid living to another level with Unique off-grid appliances.
“Off-grid” living simply means there is no conventional electric supply, such as:
- Areas where it is too expensive to bring in hydro
- Isolated or difficult-to-access areas like islands, remote lakes and camps
Unique’s certified propane refrigerators and propane freezers offer the widest product range in the world (2.2 cu/ft to 18.2 cu/ft). Their portable 3-way fridges/freezers enable improved off-grid living.
Unique is the dominant player in the North American propane fridge/freezer business. With over 50 years of experience, and the largest certified line available, you have aligned with a leader. From the small Unique 2 that provides full versatility (3 way functionality) to the largest certified propane fridge in the world, the Unique 18, Unique is your “one-stop shop”.
All off-grid appliances must be CSA certified, or the appliance may void your house or cottage insurance. Provincial authorities in Canada require all free-standing propane refrigerators to be fitted with a safety device (i.e. either a CO alarming device with a safety shut-off or a certified direct venting model). Installing a non-approved/non-certified unit may void your cottage/home insurance coverage, whether in Canada or the United States. Be safe and secure – ensure all your appliances are certified!
