Portable Propane Heaters
They do throw off the heat. But as with any non vented heating device there is a small risk of CO problems. So keeping a window cracked is advisable. As is a CO detector.
Portable Propane Heaters Factoid: You add almost a gallon of water vapor to the air for each gallon of propane burned. Another reason to have that window cracked. Otherwise you can end up with lots of condensed water vapor on the windows.
A low oxygen shutoff is a good safety feature to look for in any propane heater you're considering.
Then there is the hassle factor. In that you've got to have fuel on hand to get heat.
Yeah unlike electric space heaters, you just can't plug a chord into the nearest outlet. Who knew?
An alternative approach would be to set up a 20 pound propane tank outside. Run a 12 foot fuel hose from it to the heater through your cracked window. This set up will give you hours of hassle free heat.
Portable Propane Heaters Factoid: Propane can get contaminated when connecting and disconnecting the fuel line. That calls for a fuel filter to trap contaminants. Which you'd be wise to replace annually.
One of the more popular portable propane heaters is the Mr. Heater Portable Buddy Propane Heater. It goes for about $80.
