Propane Construction Heaters

If you manage a construction site in the winter, you know that freezing weather can be disastrous and put a halt to the entire process. If you need to warm up your construction site, try using propane construction heaters. Modern Propane sells and rents propane and propane accessories such as propane heaters.

Propane heaters can be dangerous if not used properly. Here are some considerations if you are getting a heater for your construction site:

Regulations. Certain types of heaters need permits before they can be used on construction sites. Make sure that you also follow any regulations made for safety.
Ventilation. Space heaters get very hot and need to be properly ventilated, or they may start a fire. Most are made for outdoor use only.
Power source. You will need to power the space heater with either electricity, gas, propane, or oil. Make sure that you are adequately equipped.

Modern Propane stocks several different types and brands of heaters. If you would like more information on propane construction heaters or any of the other products that we offer, contact Modern Propane.
