For so many homeowners in Hazleton, Mountain Top and other cities and towns in our Pennsylvania service area, a garage is more than just a place to put a car. It’s a woodworking space, workshop, art studio and place to hang out with friends.
But most garages are uninsulated and have cold concrete floors. On a chilly morning, it can get awfully cold in there. So, it’s unsurprising that many people come to Koppy’s Propane to talk about installing propane garage heaters.
Propane is an excellent way to heat your spaces. The products we sell and install are easy to operate, efficient and durable. Propane provides robust heat and can warm you better than natural gas or electricity.
Propane garage heaters are also quite safe. Propane emits very no methane and virtually no particulate matter. Even so, all fuel combustion produces byproducts, and you need to take proper safety precautions.
Generally, propane garage heaters produce heat with a propane flame and a ceramic element. This process can lead to the accumulation of combustion byproducts, including carbon monoxide. You need to ensure proper ventilation and take the following precautions:
To begin, your best option from a safety perspective is a vented propane heater, which vents combustion byproducts outside.
You should always choose a propane heater with the Underwriter’s Laboratory (UL) label. Also, the following features are essential for your safety:
You should also make sure that you choose a product that is the right size for your garage. The Koppy’s Propane team can help you with this.
