Default Is Propane Safe to use on a Gas Stove Indoors?

I guess the title says it. I have converted my natural gas stove over
to use propane, (meaning I flipped over the regulator plug like the
manual said). The stove works great on propane, but now I'm wondering
if it's safe to breath the same air in the kitchen. I have a range
hood, is that enough? I'm going to search around the www but I
wondered if anyone here had any experiece on this subject.

There are millions of propane stoves using propane safely. Did you also
change the orifices too? Most have one for each top burner as well as the
oven and broiler. The stoves use a different size for the two gasses.

Natural gas is lighter than air, and
mixes with it readily, so leaks dissipate relatively easily. Propane is heavier
than air and doesn't mix as easily, so it tends to pool in low places - bigger
hazard.


So what do you consider worse...blowing up your attic or blowing up
your basement? vbg
