Propane Detector

13 Aug 2012
How important is it to have a working Propane Detector?

Here in Louisa County Virginia it is in the local paper this week the story of a family of 4 that were badly burned when their camper exploded from a propane leek. They spent 2 months in the Hospital and still have a ways to go.

Dennis, And yet there will be several questions a year on this site asking, should I have detectors in my egg or how important is it to have detectors in my egg.

Carbon Monoxide, Propane, smoke detectors save lives.

Boy, Are you ever right. I wonder why people would ask such a question when it is so cheep to purchase the detectors.

One detector that was not on your list id the Low Oxygen detector that is built into CAT and other fuel powered heaters. They will shut down should the oxygen get to low.

Use a non-vented heater in a sealed space and you risk your life several ways.

Any suggestions as to a reliable battery operated one that detects propane & CO?

No but you can get one that uses no electricity at all, a book of matches.
