We often get homeowners asking if it’s safe to use a propane heater in their garage. Here at Euliss Propane, we’ve been providing propane space heaters to North Carolina families for over 50 years, so you can trust us to have the answer. Read on to find out.

Different Space Heaters Work For Different Spaces

Before answering the question, it’s important to note that propane heaters aren’t all the same. Some are rated for outdoor use only while others are perfectly safe indoors. Even among indoor heaters, some require extra ventilation and some do not. So before you buy any kind of propane appliance, be sure to consult your local propane company. Here at Euliss, we’re always happy to answer questions and help you understand how to use your propane heater safely.

Is A Propane Heater Safe For A Garage?

The answer is yes, as long as you choose the right heater and operate it safely. You’ll want a space heater that’s rated for indoor use and does not require extra ventilation (since garages typically have little airflow). You should also clear a space for the heater to reside: never place anything on top of a heater and be sure that combustible materials are kept far enough away. Your propane heater will come with specific instructions and clearances.

Where Else Does A Propane Heater Work Best?

Propane heaters are perfect for many spaces! As long as your heater is rated for indoor use and you provide it proper ventilation and free space according to the manufacturer, you can enjoy safe and efficient heat. You can buy outdoor heaters too―perfect for spending nights outside with friends without becoming too chilly.

Keep These Safety Considerations In Mind

Wherever you use your space heater, make sure to never place anything on top of it. If you’re using it indoors, make sure you have a carbon monoxide detector (good advice whether or not you’re using a heater). And familiarize yourself with the smell of propane in case of leaks. If you detect a “rotten egg” smell, be sure to turn off any open flames and call our emergency line immediately.
