Great Portable Heater
I purchased this portable heater to be able to use in my shop and as a backup if we ever needed it in the house. It lights easily and has three settings. I have never detected any fumes from it, but always use a CO monitor when using it. I am surprised at how much heat it puts out when turned up all the way. I have the optional hose and filter in order to run it off of a larger bottle as needed. One complaint I have heard a lot is that they no longer include a fan on these units, which is a legitimate complaint for sure. The top and back of this unit stays cool when burning, so I added a small squirrel cage fan which does make a big difference in moving the heat around the area. Overall I am very pleased with it and would purchase it again!

It states it is safe for indoor use, but there is a noticeable gas smell while in use. I need to repeatedly air out the shed whereby it gets cold again inside.

Mr. Heater will keep us warm when the power is out. We can run the hose through the fireplace clean out to keep the propane tank outside.
