How To Use Propane Heaters Inside

There are many different types of portable heaters that we can use. Some of them are designed to be used outside during camping trips and others for indoors while we work in the garage or if the power should go out. Sometimes though there is a problem and we have no choice – but to use what would otherwise be an outdoor heater inside the home.

It can be dangerous to use the portable propane heater inside – but what if we have no other choice? It is important to understand how to use it safely inside of the home so that nothing goes wrong.

When using this device you must make sure that all of the nozzles and hoses are connected to it securely and that they are all compatible with each other. Allowing fumes to leak into the air is hazardous to your health and is combustible.

Check on it sporadically to make sure that there are absolutely no leaks. Look between the connectors and inspect for any holes or other problem areas. Do you smell something odd? That is a big sign that it is leaking. A carbon monoxide detector in your home should go off if there is a leak.

Ventilation is necessary if you are going to use it for long periods. You must also make sure that the heater is on top of something stable and away from anything that can catch on fire. Try to keep it on top of a table or other stable surface. Keep kids and pets away so that it is not knocked over.
