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.
- PERC teaches the safe use of propane with an effective preventive maintenance program, GAS Check® (Gas Appliance System Check).
