F.W. Webb Co., Fastenal, Absolute Equipment, Mobile Air, Inc., and ComEdCo Systems, Inc., are a few companies who manufacturer propane heaters, as of 2015. Mr. Heater, Dyna-Glo and Dura Heat also manufacture propane heaters.
There are a variety of different size propane heaters available, and there are many different price ranges to choose from. The heaters are used for a variety of different reasons, including outdoor work sites and as space heaters in a home garage.
When using propane heaters, there are some safety precautions that individuals need to take. If an individual is using a propane heater to heat his home, either through a main heating system or through a portable propane heater, carbon monoxide detectors should be installed on each floor of the home.
When using propane heaters indoors, never use an unvented model, because the exhaust vents into the room, which increases the levels of carbon monoxide. Unvented heaters are meant to be used outdoors for working porches, camping and patios, and they are not to be used in enclosed spaces. Indoor propane heaters should be installed so they can properly vent the exhaust outside of the home, and they need to be cleaned on a regular basis to ensure the fumes are not trapped inside.
