portable propane heater Buyer’s Guide

If you keep the before points in mind, you can easily go out to the market and buy portable propane heater, right? No!

Mr. Heater F215100 MH4B Indoor Propane Heater

This is a small propane heater for indoor use, but you can use it outdoors as well. If you use it in a confined space, it can provide sufficient heat for up to 9square feet. A one-pound propane cylinder will keep the heater running for about five and a half hours.

A low-oxygen sensor monitors the air and will turn the unit off if there is not enough oxygen in the room. The tip-over switch shuts down the unit if it leans in at an angle higher than 30 degrees.

Dyna-Glo RMC-FA60DGD

This version of the Dyna-Glo is capable of producing up to 60,000 BTUs, which is a very high heating capacity. When it’s used at his highest capacity, this model will produce sufficient heat to warm up a space of up to 1,350 square feet, which makes it a great propane heater for garage.

The heater has a sturdy steel construction, making it durable so you can use it for a long time. You can adjust the heater’s angle, so you can direct most of the heat where it’s most needed. The overhead handle helps you move the heater easily.

Dyna Glo RA18LPDG Propane Cabinet Heater

This is a good indoor propane heater, capable of producing up to 18,000 BTU which should be enough for heating a space of up to 450 feet. The heater has three heat settings, so you can use it safely in small or large spaces, both.

The heater uses three separate burners, each of them rated at 6,000 BTU. You cannot use each of them separately, but you can choose to use only one, two, or all three at a time. Each burner uses a ceramic element that puts out a lot of radiant heat.

This heater uses a 20-pound propane gas tank, which is not included in the buying price. The tank fits perfectly in the open back of the heater, so it won’t take up additional space.

Mr. Heater VF30KBLUELP Propane Heater

This is probably the most efficient propane heater in our list. It can produce up to 30,000 BTU in an hour, which will be enough to keep a space of up to 1,000 square feet warm when the temperatures drop.

The heater weighs 3pounds and doesn’t need any electricity to run. The ignition system is powered by an AA battery, which makes the heater perfect for fishing or hunting cabins where the is no electricity around.

There are two heating settings you can choose from, so you can change the heat output from low to high. The control knob on the top acts like a thermostat, and once you choose a position you think will be enough for your home, it will keep the temperature constant according to that position.

Ignition

There is more than one way to turn the propane heater on. Some models use a manual ignition, meaning you have to ignite the heater yourself, while most models available on the market today use an automatic, integrated ignition system.

The integrated ignition system can vary between models, as well. Some models use electricity to power their ignition system, which means you need an electricity outlet nearby if you want to use them. This means you can’t use them in remote areas where electricity is not available, but there is a good reason behind this ignition method. These models use electricity to create sparks constantly, making sure that the heater is burning at all times and that propane is not leaking in the room.

Other integrated ignition systems use batteries as a power source. This means you can use these models everywhere you want, but if the batteries run out and you don’t have replacements on hand, igniting them can prove to be difficult.

Efficiency

Propane heaters are efficient. They have a high heat output, and propane is cheaper than other heating fuel. Most propane heaters will provide sufficient heat for larger surfaces than electric heaters, and still cost less to run.

In fact, using an electric heater to warm up the same surface as a propane heater can cost up to four times as much, so it’s easy to consider propane heaters efficient.

The only downside of running a propane heater is that most of them don’t have thermostats and the models that do don’t use thermostats with temperature display. If you use a space heater without a thermostat there’s always the possibility of running it more than it should, lowering their efficiency.

Making sure your propane heater is sized right is essential if you want to use it efficiently. Buying a heater too small for the space you use it in will only raise the temperature a little, without actually warming up the place, while buying a heater too big can make the temperature reach uncomfortable levels.

Most propane heaters indicate how many BTU they are capable of producing, and you should use this value as a guideline to make sure it’s enough for your needs. As a general rule, you can consider that you need 2BTU for every square foot of surface when the temperatures are low.

Propane Heaters Maintenance

It’s very important to do regular maintenance on your propane space heater and to have it checked periodically by a licensed professional. Ensuring professional service will keep the unit running at optimal levels without producing threatening levels of carbon monoxide.

If you want to do some maintenance work on your space heater, make sure it’s turned off and allow it enough time to cool. Even if the heater seems cool at the surface, it can still be warm under the metal grille, so take the time for all its components to cool down.

Now that the heater and all its components are cool, the first thing you can do is to vacuum it. If your vacuum cleaner has a high suction power, run it on its lowest level. All you need to do is vacuum the dust or debris that may have accumulated on the heater’s grill, or around it.

If your propane heater’s grill is very tight and the vacuum cleaner cannot get all the dust out, you can use a slim painting brush to displace the dust, and then try using the vacuum again to clear it. You can also use the brush on the heater’s section where the flame is produced, and on the ignition.

Every propane heater has a cover panel which is screwed shut. You can remove the panel by unscrewing it and taking it off. Keep in mind that you will have to screw the panel back, so be careful not to lose the screws. Once you take the plate cover off, you can use a cloth to wipe the dust from inside the covered compartment. You can also use the vacuum cleaner for this, but at its lowest power setting again. If you removed all the dust you could reach, place the cover back on and screw it shut.

One of the advantages of using propane heating is that it’s cheap. Using propane instead of electricity to heat your whole house could lower your heating bills by up to 50%, so it’s much cheaper.

Another advantage is buying large amounts of propane when the weather is still warm. This is another way of further lowering your bills. Propane is less dangerous than other heating fuels, and storing it for long periods of time is not dangerous.

Propane heaters can be used everywhere, as long as they’re connected to a propane tank. This means you’ll be able to move the heaters as you like, taking them with you in your car, truck, or in your trailer. You can also use them for heating a tent when you go hiking, which is a great way to make your outdoor experiences more comfortable. However, you should keep in mind that most propane heaters won’t work at altitudes higher than 3000 feet. If you want to use a heater at higher altitudes, make sure you check online or in the instructions manual to see if you can.

Propane heaters are capable of producing a lot of heat. A propane heater will produce more heat than an electrical heater of the same size.

One of the downsides of using a propane heater is the toxic by-product it produces, carbon monoxide. Even though indoor models produce a low amount of the gas, and they have safety features which will turn the unit off if the gas accumulates in a confined space, you still have to have the heater periodically evaluated by a professional. This means you’ll have to pay a fee every once in a while if you want to use the heater safely.

Another downside, and maybe the biggest one, is the propane tank. Besides the surface you need to place the heater, you will also need enough space to place the tank. This can be a major inconvenience in small apartments or houses.

The advantage of using an electric heater is that electricity is always at hand, and you don’t need to stock on it. Most electric heaters are also portable, so you’ll be able to move them around the house. They don’t have any by-products, and they are environmentally friendly. They produce less heat than propane models, but they can be placed anywhere and they don’t need a tank.

Outdoor heaters and

As for the fuel, you can power the heater with 1lb propane bottle or buy a hose and connect Mr. Heater to a big 20 lb cylinder. lb will work from hours (9000 BTU) to hours (4000 BTU).

Big Buddy Heater with 18 000 BTU for is the most powerful Buddy. In this case, we can safely say that this device will warm any tent up to 400 sq. ft. even in winter! This is facilitated by the presence of blower fan, which accelerates the warm air in the tent. Such a powerful Buddy is suitable not only for tents, but also for garages, workshops, cabins, fishing shanties, truck caps etc. Its rating of 4.stars out of stars is a valid proof of its usefulness.

Other than being equipped with all the safety features built in all of the Buddies, this heater is the most stable and most cumbersome of the three. The manufacturer points out that it can be used even for home heating (!),as an emergency measure in case of power failure, which is this heater’s competitive edge over other devices of the line. Big Buddy can be powered from two 1lb tanks, and from 5, or 20 lb propane tanks (you will also need to purchase a suitable hose and filter so the gas valves do not clog). In the former case the tank will last for ~ hours of heating at low settings.

Judging by the reviews, 400 sq ft is not the limit, Big Buddy will be able to heat 500 sq ft within half an hour. Bear in mind that on the contrary, you shouldn’t use such a powerful tool to heat cramped tents or premises: it will be too hot. In general, the heater is very good and justifies its price.

Size

When you go for hiking, you have to carry a limited amount of luggage with you. In this way, you can effortlessly move ahead. However, in cold weather, you have to carry a camping heater with you.

Therefore, always prefer to buy small size heater. Such camping heaters will not consume more space in your baggage. They do not even occupy more space in a tent if you are willing to use it in a tent.

Texsport Bulk Tank Double Propane Heater

Texsport double tank heater offers double the warmth; this is perfect for outdoor winter camping that is not supported with electricity. An additional bulk tank may be connected; however, the tank is not included in the package.

Key Features

While going for winter hiking, you should not miss packing the most efficient camping heater in your baggage. We have reviewed the best three among those available in the recent times; and, we believe that Texsport Bulk Tank Double Propane Heater is the best among the three above. It can keep your tent and your nights warm and cozy.

Mr. Heater F232000 MH9BX Buddy

Mr. Heater is America’s top camping heater manufacturer, gaining a lot of experience and notoriety over the years. Currently, the Mr. Heater Buddy ranks as the number one most bought item in this niche, and we’re not surprised. The Mr. Heater offers plenty of power for its size, and is very, very portable.

This can output between 4,000 and 9,000 BTU (British thermal units), enough to provide heat for up to 22square feet of closed space. Designed to operate both in indoors and outdoors, this little guy can really make a difference when it comes to your camping experience. A tent or a RV is no problem for the Mr. Heater Buddy.

Clean-burning and high efficiency are a must when using something that’s potentially dangerous. Just place it accordingly, and you won’t have any problems. The Mr. Heater Buddy has a swivel-out regulator, so that you can attach a one-pound propane tank without any awkward positioning. If that’s not enough for you, the manufacturers have issued a list of all compatible accessories that can allow you to connect up to a 40 pound propane tank. Moreover, starting this thing is quite complex, so you won’t accidentally turn it on. It even has a sensor that will stop it when oxygen levels reach a certain threshold.

Mr. Heater F215100 MH4B Little Buddy

Placed at a 45-degree angle and being very small, you can get creative with how you place it. It can run up to five and a half hours on the same tank, offering continuous odor-free heat for the entire period.

That being said, it’s all downhill from here. Its BTU output is around 600-700, very, very little. That’s not everything, this isn’t even designed to be used in indoor environments, maybe because the lack of safety measures that we’ve seen on previous products. While it’s not all bad, it certainly doesn’t measure up to expectations.

The Mr. Heater Buddy is a great option for campers who want guaranteed warmth should the temperatures go down at night. It can be used inside and out, and features an easy grip handle for transport. For your safety, this unit shuts itself off when low oxygen in detected, or if it’s toppled over. It’s fuelled via propane tank and can deliver up to three hours of warmth when turned up to its highest heat setting. Since it’s powered by gas, it can be used in case of emergency when the power has been cut. Standard safety precautions should be taken with this type of device to reduce the chance of carbon monoxide poisoning.

Camping can be cold

A compact space heater is a good choice for campers who want to keep warm without relying on a fire.

Proper venting is extremely important when it comes to models that require gas as fuel. Using this kind of space heater without adequate venting and air circulation can be very dangerous.

Dr. Heater DR96- 240 Volt Garage Heater

Dr. Heater DR96is the absolute heater for warming large spaces such as construction site, garage and basement.

It includes an in-built thermostat that is a no-brainer to adjust. As a bonus to you, it includes safety features so that you are safe whenever you use it.

Buying Dr. Heater means your garage or construction site will be having continuous warmth throughout the day. You will even work with your vest during winter times. Here are the additional features that make this heater worthy buying.

Economical

The fact that it throws a large amount of heat, it is easy to think that it cost too much. No, the large amount of heat that it supplies has minimal impact on your energy bills.

Mr. Heater F232000 has a large porcelain coated heating surface that enables it to radiate heat in a 22square foot area. The range of area it can heat makes Mr. Heater suitable for garage, tents, workshop and construction site.

Mr. Heater F232000 comes with two settings: High and low. These are just one of the features that will contribute to your safety and comfort when you buy Mr. Heater.

Fold-down handle

The heater is integrated with high-quality ceramic burner tile that offers shock-absorbing insulation.

Additional, you can also direct the heat to any direction that you want. All you need it to rotate the heater.

NewAir G7Hardwired – Electric Powered Garage Heater

The NewAir G7is a popular electric heater that is durable and does it job efficiently. Its handle is versatile.

Soft halogen lights

The soft light is included in the design and it operates separately. It purposes is to radiate a sun-like light for added ambiance. If you want something that would look beautiful in your shops this is the one.

Heating Capabilities

The heat output you want will depend on the size of the garage. A small garage can be served best by an infrared heater, because all you need is for you to be in direct contact with the heater. They heat objects which is you instead of the air.

British thermal unit (BTU) is used to measure the heat output that heater gives out. If you have a large garage, then consider investing in a heater that has higher watts and BTU. 4000 to 5000 BTU is the perfect range for the large garage.

A 1.5kw fan forced heater is the perfect heat output for a small garage.

Electric Garage Heaters

You will enjoy the convenience that they have. All you need is an electric outlet. They are simple to install. They are also the types of heaters that are least dangerous compared to other types of heaters.

Electric garage heaters have lots of safety features in them such the auto-shut system.

When to come to maintenance, there is little to none. Even if you had a chance to do maintenance, it will be replacing some parts, which can be or years from the time of purchase.

You are better off going with an electric garage heater if the three types of heater are not available in your place or the area where you live.

Natural Gas and Propane Gas

I have decided to combine them both because they all use gas.

Natural gas would be perfect for you in place that you can’t find propane. Or propane is expensive in your location.

Natural and propane gas are best garage heater if you have a large garage. That is because they provide heat that is to times stronger than the electric garage heaters.

They are portable. If you are the kind of person who moves from station to station, then either natural or propane garage heater will suit you.

But you need to take caution when you are using them. You need to make sure that they are no leakages or loose connection that can lead to the fire.

You will need to monitor the amount of fuel that you have on a regular basis so that you don’t run out.

There is some maintenance involved when it comes to fuel refill and you will need the services of a plumber to help you install a gas line, in case you don’t have.

The initial purchase of propane gas is expensive. But what I like about is that it provides more heat in the garage.

Proper ventilation

Your garage needs to be ventilated. There is must be air flowing freely inside and outside.

A poorly ventilated garage can cause havoc especially if you have propane or natural gas garage heaters. Any leakage can lead you to fire break out.

Maintenance

If you have a propane garage heater, you will need to check it from time to time.

You need to inspect for any loose connection or leaks. You need to make sure that there is enough gas in the tank.

It is so easy to run out gas and you may know it if it is too late.

You need insurance

If you are going to install a heating unit in your detached garage you will need an insurance cover for it. Insurance issues can be tackled first by calling an agent.

Detached garage and shops don’t fall in the same category as the home insurance; you will need to consult an agent for these so that you can be specific.

North America’s Most Popular Portable Propane Heater! This patented radiant 4,000-9,000 BTU Liquid Propane heater connects directly to a lb. cylinder and is the perfect solution for heating enclosed spaces like large tents up to 22sq. ft.

Mr. Heater

To achieve this difference, LPG is typically provided in a smaller quantity but at a higher pressure, drawing more oxygen with it into the burner.

What to Consider

A number of things need to be considered when determining your heater sizing: ♦  The volume of the area to be heated including consideration of ceiling height. ♦  The climate zone that you live in. ♦  The physical features of your home including wall & ceiling insulation, window coverings and carpeting. ♦  The kW output of the gas heater, not to be confused with the gas Mj input.

Heating Area Volume & Climate Zone

Please note that this is only a guide and individual home designs and situations may vary.

Because 1kW will heat 10m², you should need a heater with a 5kW output.

This means you would need a heater with 5.kW of output (50 ÷ 9).

Minimum Room Sizing

Your gas fitter will be able to guide you on many of these points.

Manufacturer Sizing Charts

If you are going on a weekend camping trip, or you want to heat up a camper van or truck, this just might be your perfect option. But it is unlikely to be able to cut it for more extreme winter conditions, or longer periods of time. However, it does heat up a lot of space, but not for quite as long as some of your other options.

Going green

In order to make sure that you get a right water heater capable of providing properly heated water, you have to figure out the average temperatures of the water is in your area so as to easily find a water heater for that specific temperature. When the average temperatures of your area are cold then a stronger propane water heater is required.

You should choose the proper size of the tankless propane water heater to be used based on the requirements of your home. Many varieties of propane tankless water heater are available in the markets which provide the heaters with varying capacities. As a result, you should always consider the size before purchasing any water heater so as to ensure that it meets all the needs of your home.

In case you live in cold climates, you should use a propane or natural gas model since they are more efficient and powerful. On the other hand, in case you live in the warm climates, you should use the electric tankless heater. In the event that if you use a propane model, you have to ensure that the area has proper venting facility.

You have to ensure that you should never surpass the maximum GPM (gallons per minute) that the unit can produce. In case there’s a certain time during the day when a lot of water will be being used, you have to evaluate the GPM for that specific time of day. As a result, when choosing the best propane tankless water heater for your home, you should look at its GPM to avoid any faults while using the water heater.

You should always choose a water heater model with the best qualities and one which will not cause any harmful effects on the environment. The propane tankless water heater should be eco-friendly. Some of the best models which provide these products are the eco-smart and eco temp tankless water heaters.

When buying any propane tankless water heater, you should look for a model which provides proper safety through provision automatic sensors. The sensors normally detect harmful gases like carbon monoxide that shuts down the system automatically.

Dr. Heater DR96garage heater

Those of you looking for a decent unit to heat a garage or perhaps a workshop, may want to look at our best garage heater guide. This machine has plenty or excellent options included within the design.

Secondly, it includes louvers attached to the front which allow consumers to point the heated air in the direction where it will become most effective.

And despite being a model which could be used in a commercial setting, perhaps even an industrial unit, this is still reasonably priced. Just take note that if you do decide to purchase it, the power cord does not come with it.

Then when you factor into the equation product aesthetics and how modern the design looks, you can see why this insert seems to be a popular choice.

Stiebel Eltron CK 15E wall mounted electric fan heater

The first being that the noise levels are marketed as being quiet. This is not always the case and some machines can give off rather loud, irritating noises such as the rush of hot air flow.

Secondly, because it can be used as a quick warming device, you can put it in strategic areas of the home where warmth escapes regularly, such as near front and back doors.

Not quite low budget in our view, but still provides good value for money.

DeLonghi HMP1500 Mica Panel Heater

And the icing on the cake here may come as a surprise to some. It looks great. We believe it will fit right in with many types of home decor, especially those found in modern bedrooms.

Halogen heaters

Unlike some heating devices, this type differentiates itself by removing the coils and other elements used such as propane as a source of heat, and instead focusing on doing so with halogen elements. These are typically plugged into an electrical outlet and are great for providing warmth in smaller spaces.

Convection Heaters

Quite simple in its operation, air convection currents flow through the units main heating element ensuring the same air is warmed up and output. Oil based, water based radiators, and baseboard heaters are a great example of this type in action. They are fantastic options for distributing heat evenly and circulating if effectively around the room.

The Difference Between Electric and Propane

While both will keep you warm, there are differences between electric and propane heaters that shouldn’t be ignored. A propane heater can cost up to 50% less to operate than electric and can be used anywhere since the propane tank can move right along with you. Additionally, since they run on gas they can function during power outages and even heat up quicker than electric heaters.

Propane heaters, though, should only be used in open spaces with adequate ventilation. With that being said, they are the better option for you as long as you act responsibly.

Dyna-Glo Liquid Propane Forced Air Heater

Continuously Variable Heat Control: This heater puts out between 30,000 and 60,000 BTU to heat up to 1,350 square feet. The controls on the unit make it so that you can control just how much heat you are getting out of this heater for maximum comfort.

Safe for Both Indoor and Outdoor Use: Dyna-Glo has gotten this product CSA Certified so you know it is safe wherever you want to use it. Inside and outside, you can be snug as a bug with the warmth from this heater. It includes a 10-foot hose and regulator for safe use.

Easy Carrying Handle: This heater is probably the largest on our list but that doesn’t mean that it is any less portable than the other options. The handle on this heater makes it easy to carry and move with you.

Dyna-Glo Infrared Vent Free Wall Heater

Infrared Technology: This sucker is hotter than hot. It uses infrared technology to put out heat, meaning that it stays efficient while it burns the propane. More heat and more savings are a good thing.

30,000 BTU Output: This heater is serious as far as heat output goes. It can keep up to 1,000 square feet warm in the thick of winter and you’d be sure to appreciate the warmth then. At 30,000 BTUs per hour, you won’t be disappointed – or cold.
