Go Exploring With A Portable Propane Heater

When life takes you beyond the edge of civilization, you can enjoy some of the comforts of home with a portable propane heater. Whether you’re packing up the truck to go camping, hiking, or exploring, or you’re hosting an outdoor event near home, a heater provides the extra warmth you need to enjoy your adventure safely and comfortably. Portable propane heaters run off small propane tanks that you can purchase or fill at one of our CanGas branches. Follow adventure wherever it leads you and stay toasty no matter what with a portable propane heater.

Your Remote Power Options

Portable Heaters

Outdoor portable heaters, powered by portable propane tanks, are ideal for outdoor trade shows, sporting events, or camping trips. Propane provides a warm and consistent heat.

Cabin Heaters

While you may not use propane at your primary residence, cabins and summer homes in remote areas often rely on propane for several applications. Propane can power cabin heaters as well as lighting, fire pits, and water heaters using a bulk propane supply.

RV Power

When it comes to RVing, not every site will have the right electrical hookups. A propane-powered generator can help you fuel various appliances within the RV. Portable propane heaters can also be outside the RV during cold days and nights.

Benefits Of Using A Portable Propane Heater

Portable propane heaters offer greater versatility than the alternatives. Electric space heaters are okay for indoor use, but portable electrical appliances typically require a generator to function in remote areas. You can purchase portable propane tanks and fill them at one of our nearby CanGas branches. If you want to take a portable propane heater into the mountains for an overnight adventure, you don’t have to worry about polluting the environment or creating potential dangers for wildlife. Propane is a safe and clean fuel source, the burning of which produces fewer emissions than gasoline, diesel, and oil.

Is Propane Portable?

Though the tanks we install are large, propane can be stored in smaller containers and transported easily to power a portable heater, generator, or propane cabin heater.
