Propane heaters can be dangerous

January 22, 2003

Albany- If you have a propane heater, there are certain things you need to remember, to keep your home from going up in flames.

Mark Holloway, with Modern Gas Company, says it's important to have a carbon monoxide detector in your home, to make sure your heater is running properly. He also says these gas cylinders are for the outdoors, and shouldn't be used indoors.

Johnson says your heater should emit a nice blue flame and if it is an infrared heater, you should see a red glow.

Johnson also says it's important to check your heater gauge. If it falls to twenty percent, call your propane supplier.
