Heaters should be installed according to the manufacturer's instructions, and should be in accordance with state or local government regulations or fire codes. Heaters may be hot to the touch. Do not place or drape any flammable material (e.g., a towel or tee shirt) on top of or near a heater.

If you wish to use a propane heater, consult your local regulations for the safe use, hook-up and storage of propane products. These regulations may be under the control of local fire or municipal departments, county building codes, etc. Learn your local regulations and follow them.

With propane or natural gas heaters, when lighting or relighting the pilot or turning the heater on or off, refer to the manufacturer's instructions on the name and rating plate. This plate is attached to the heater inside the control compartment. Following these instructions will prevent injuries. Gas is explosive and flammable.
