    I bought two of these heaters a year ago for emergencies and they have been sitting in their box ever since. But, when hurricane Sandy knocked out power, they more than paid for themselves. I got them for winter storms and never thought I’d be using them in cold weather after a hurricane. They worked exactly as advertised. These are not whole house heaters. They are great room heaters and make life much more comfortable in an emergency. They have several safety features but I also have a carbon monoxide detector that I keep in the room with them. It’s probably like wearing suspenders and a belt but it makes me more comfortable to have a detector as an extra safety precaution. In my emergency supplies I also have a camp stove and lantern. These all take the same one pound propane bottles. I keep a case of the gas bottles on hand. This gives me heat, light, and hot coffee in the morning. I don’t like it when the electric goes out but I try to get into the camping trip mentality and make the most out of an uncomfortable situation. These heaters helped me do that and stay comfortable.

    Fulltime RVers should consider this, January 2, 2011

    If you fulltime in an RV, you know about cold days & nights. Maybe you want to warm the bedroom before showering, or maybe you want to warm your tootsies while watching DWTS. This “Portable Buddy” will do the trick for short bursts of heat.

    I’m amazed to say the sides & bottom remained cool to the touch (“cool” as in room temp) after a full hour of use. Of note: it didn’t heat a glass of cold water touching its side. Indeed, the LP can on the other side got cold enough to attract condensate! No gas smell during use.

    It includes an oxygen sensor among its multiple failsafes — but take care when using it in an RV bedroom. If you put it on a dresser, it could melt your ceiling. Also, your bedroom will heat up VERY quickly, so please don’t leave it unattended.

    Disposable LP cans cost a lot, but right now I only plan to use it for spot applications. In the future, though, I’ll look at a refillable 4lb tank to make it cheap to operate.

    I have been using a portable heater for the Green House to keep things at 48 degrees when the temperatures go below that;however, the lowest heat raises the temperature to 66 at 40 degrees and the middle setting bring the temperature from 34 to 75 degrees. I needed something dependable and 4,000 BTU and 9,000 BTU might just heat my green house, 12 feet by 12 feet, and not caused any leaf yellowing or bloom drop.
    It was the answer.
    The Heater is well made, enamel and should not give me any rust problems. It is light in weight, about 2.5 lbs, and has a low oxygen alarm and will turn off if the stove turns over. I hook it up to a propane gas hose with a leak detector on the propane tank. Turning on the heater is a breeze. I move the dial from shut to pilot light, and push down the dial which gives a spark and the pilot lite goes on. I count to 30 and move the dial to the low setting. The ceramic plate turns to a faint pink glow and I wait a minute to make sure it does not go out. I get about 5 hours on a pound of propane. The temperature raises about 12.5 degrees and holds it there. If the outside temperature is 36 degrees, I will stay at 48 in the green house. If it gets to 34 or 35, I need to go to high, which raises the temperature about 15 degrees, to 49 degrees. The plants are happier. I bought a second such Heater in case we have a problem and the temperature goes into the 20 degree range. It has happened in the past but only rarely. I think two heaters can handle that, one on high and one on low. The prior heater used half a lb. of propane an hour so this heater is a money saver. I read that the heater does not get hot on the outside and it is true. This is a fantastic product.
    I tried electric heaters in the past but the current drain was so great the fan would turn at a snails pace. I knew then that I had to use gas to get the heat I required.
    As an after thought, you can tell how much propane you have in the 20 lb. tank. Take the propane tank, empty, in your hands and step on the scale and record the weight. Then weight yourself and subtract the difference and you have the weight of the tank.
    Paint it on the tank, empty weight. It is hard to read the Total Weight on the tank as it is engraved on the tank and often difficult to see. When you get the tank filled, weight it as you stand on the scale, and after subtracting your weight, record the full weight of the tank with the gas and paint it on the tank. If you have no paint, buy a cheap nail polish and paint it on the tank. Where I live, the temperature has dropped around Midnight to 46 and gets to 42 around 4 a.m. and up to 48 by 10 a.m.. I just turn the heater on at Midnight and turn it off at 10 a.m. when the sun is heating the green house. I weight the tank and find I used two lbs. for 10 house. One tank should last me 10 days. With my other heater, I got 40 hours or 5 days, plants got too much heat and lost leaves and blooms.
