Marcellin Berthelot discovered propane in 1857, but it wasn't until 1910 that it was used for cooking and heating. One of the biggest benefits when it comes to propane heating is that it's non-toxic and burns clean. It's also cheaper, dependable, and longer lasting than electric heating.

Electric Space Heaters weren't discovered until the late 1800s by Alexander Graham Bell. Electric heating is generally safer than gas because they do not require burn fuel. Instead, they consume energy with a nominal heat output of at least 250W. This type of heating can eliminate potential risks such as carbon monoxide emissions and explosions. Even though gas is cheaper to run on a daily basis, electric heating is cheaper when it comes to installation. Technology in this day and age allows smart heaters where you can control from your smartphone as well.
