Even in the best of family homes it happens.
A cold spot. And we’re not talking
refrigerators. We mean those places in your
home that your furnace doesn’t quite reach.
That’s when you need a propane space heater
to keep you frost free. Propane space heaters
not only cost less to operate, they’re safe,
attractive and efficient. Propane. The clean
choice. The clear choice. The frost free choice.
