Carbon monoxide!

You cant use radiant heat propane heaters indoors. Only indoor safe catalyst heaters with co detectors and low oxygen shut off sensors.
Tell that to my grandparents. A radiant heater in the main room, coffee can of water on it for humidity. They can be used, WITH PROPER VENTILATION!!!

My grandparents used an unvented Dearborne propane heater for years. I lived in a house with an unvented Dearborne propane heater for a couple of years. How is it different from natural gas? Does it emit more carbon monoxide than NG?
No, the CO comes from Carbon burned in the absence of sufficient combustion oxygen to make CO2. You need roughly 3 molecules of NG to equal the heat and C of one molecule of Propane. Numbers work out the same.
