How safe are vent free propane heaters?
Beside this, do you need ventilation when using a propane heater?
However, if you will be heating a room inside a home or other building, choose an electric space heater instead, because propane heaters can pose a carbon monoxide hazard when used without adequate ventilation. Propane heaters need oxygen to breath.
Subsequently, question is, are tank top propane heaters safe indoors? Used properly, indoor propane heaters are safe. Never place anything on top of an indoor propane space heater. Install carbon monoxide detectors in your home, or the space where you use your indoor propane space heater. Never leave an indoor propane heater unattended.
Thereof, do ventless heaters produce carbon monoxide?
A good gas heater that is well maintained will produce very little, if any, CO - carbon monoxide. You only get CO if you have incomplete combustion. With a ventless or unflued gas heater, the combustion gases are released into the heated space.
Can you get carbon monoxide poisoning from a propane heater?
Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Propane. Carbon Monoxide is the product of incomplete gas combustion often because appliances are improperly adjusted. Properly functioning propane appliances will produce what is called an "ideal burn" during combustion and present no danger of Carbon Monoxide poisoning.
