Many people have died from using them indoors improperly. Anybody remember the kerosene heaters that were popular for extra heat back in the 70's?


We are well aware of the hazards. We have a window in the back & a vent or two open in the front with a small fan running. Really worked out great down to 18*.

Ok, just thought I bring it up just in case. Not trying to burst your bubble.

Our cat doesn't like it as well as the old radiant heater, she would lay in front of it and sleep. This doesn't "radiate" the heat so she didn't have a hot spot.
Nice to not to have to take a chance with the propane bottle in the camper, a little scary. Now more like home.
Nice looking install.
For future reference for the cat... they make two versions of that propane wall heater. One heats the air (like you have) and one is a ceramic radiant heater.
Maybe you knew that... maybe you didn't... just sayin'.

Yes, we had a portable radiant heater that we had to have the tank in the camper, scary plus the radiant part was a little more dangerous I thought.
We really like this one. Water heater (on demand) and furnace with this heater used 15 gallon of propane in a week of snow and cold weather.
