While heating my home with propane gas is not the cheapest, nor my preferred method, it is difficult to find alternatives that are sustainable and green to the earth. Sure, if I could afford a total switchover to solar panels then I would. If my home had the physical capabilities of employing a wood burner, then I would love to go that route as the smell of burning firewood is delectable and so comforting. So, since modern technology and circumstance dictate my options, I have moved toward a source of heating that is portable and easy to setup in minutes in case something happens.
This 125K BTU heater is ideal for larger areas, large houses, garages, and is suggested for job sites. What makes the heater ready for construction is not only the power and heat it’s capable of producing, but it goes into how and what it’s made of: dual powder coated tubular steel handles, pneumatic rubber tires, and a split upper shell for maintenance, which Mr. Heater describes as a few reasons why you can expect long life of faithful service. This Forced Air Kerosene heater is equipped with a high output fully enclosed motor, controlled by a factory installed thermostat and has an overheat safety shutdown feature that can very simply save lives.
This heater heats up large areas very quickly, and is very easy to setup and use, which took me by surprise. Sure, the shipping box is large, but the heater itself comes together with ease, and even in the worst situation, you can have heat pumping through your cold areas in a matter of minutes. It’s rated at 125,000 BTU per hour, which can operate at 9.5 hours when using a full 8.5 gallon tank; for use with kerosene 1 and 2, diesel 1 and 2, home heating oil and JP-8. Other features built into this awesome and powerful heater is continuous ignition, a fuel gauge, and is mounted on a set of heavy duty wheels that can both take the heat, but also makes it easily portable.
All in all, I found Mr. Heater’s 125K BTU Forced Air Kerosene Heater to be top notch. Setup is simple and easy, ignition is a piece of cake, functionality is as good as it gets and maintenance (thus far) has been minimal, and since the unit was designed so well, even that’s relatively no issue.
