Why It’s Safe
Propane has quite a remarkable safety record, due in large part to the stringent codes and regulations developed by the propane industry and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Statistics compiled by the NFPA indicate that the safest way to heat is with gas.
Propane has Built-in Safety Properties.
- Propane won’t ignite when combined with air unless the source of ignition reaches 940° F.
- Propane gas is nontoxic and produces minimal emissions.
- Propane is not harmful to soil or water.
- Because propane in its natural state is odorless and colorless, a commercial odorant is added to propane so it may be detected if it leaks into the environment.
