The first thing a consumer wants to know when they make up their minds to get an indoor propane heater is who makes them. Some of the better known brand names are Reddy Heater, Duraheat, Benzomatic, Uniflame, Master Heater and Mr Heat. There is a propane heater to suit every budget because they range in price from around $30 to $950. Obviously the size of the heater is going to affect the price. If you want to start using a propane heater you must choose the right size in comparison to the dimensions of the area to be heated.

Propane heaters are used by consumers because they save in heating bills. As the name implies these heaters are fueled by liquid propane. If you are going to use one of these heaters to warm a space that is confined then you must make sure you choose a model that is vented. You will not have an accumulation of burned fuel in the form of gasses in the air if you use a vented propane heater. It should be pointed out that propane is cheaper to burn than other gasses. Propane also burns cleaner and clearer than other gasses.

If you want a heater that is really safe then you should consider a propane heater that is wall mounted. It is possible to mount the heater high up and out of the reach of children and pets. It is also convenient if you have elderly parents or grandparents living in your home. The danger of them stumbling against a heater on the floor will be eliminated.

An indoor propane heater is convenient because you don't have to heat your entire home. There are very few people who can afford to heat their whole home day and night. If you have a propane heater you can heat the area or room you are using. If you heat areas or rooms that are not used you are wasting valuable energy and you are also wasting money. Using a propane heater where you need it is much more environmentally friendly than using electricity for providing heat. Most of us have two story homes. This makes it easy to use propane heaters upstairs at night and downstairs during the day.

Propane heaters used indoors come in a variety of colors, shapes, models and designs. They also provide differing heating power for different sized rooms. Some models have been designed for mounting on walls and ceilings. Others stand upright on the floor.

These heaters can be safely used in any room as long as there is sufficient ventilation and an outlet. If not then you must choose a vented heater. A vented heater is a good choice for the bathroom especially if its wall mounted. A propane heater is good for use in bathrooms because like all propane heaters they are not reliant on electricity. This is an advantage in a room where water is used. It is advisable to check with the supplier or manufacturer which model is best suited to which room.
