Anyone use a propane burner in the house or is this just obsured? Just preparing for the winter months.

Not safe in so many ways! Propane tank in a dwelling, build up of deadly, odorless carbon monoxide, potential to burn your house down, just to name a few!

I believe that a number of people here have reported safely using propane in their garages with the door open slightly.

Bad idea. Carbon monoxide is not your friend.

A garage with the garage door open a foot or two should be ok though. I plugged in a carbon monoxide detector in the garaage last winter to make sure though.

Just remember that LP is heavier than air and CO is lighter than air. And remember ventilation, ventilation, ventilation.

As a boater, I can tell you the results of LP building up in peoples' bilges. It's not pretty. Don't let it "roll downhill" into your sump or something like that.

Pure CO is lighter than pure O2. Carbon is lighter than oxygen.
