    This is the heater I have. Slight bigger and really noisy, but it sure heats up my detached 3 car garage. It may be portable, but lugging that 100lb propane tank around would not be called portable.

    I considered one of those at one time. They consume a LOT of propane. And if the temperature is really low they want you to use a 100 lb. cylinder. I ended up with a small 70,000 BTU kerosene unit.

    I have a 60,000 btu Reddy brand kerosene heater. It would get my uninsulated 24x36 shop as warm as I wanted it.
    I still have it, but rarely use it. Im currently in the process of insulating walls and adding a ceiling, so it will be much easier to heat, but last year I switched to my 220V electric heater and a 23000 BTU kerosene heater (non-powered type).
    That worked well enough last year, and I expect (hope) that after Im done with the walls and ceiling, Ill only use that one sparingly.
    I only keep it above freezing in there so my chemicals dont have issues, and raise the temp if Im going to be working.

    One thing to keep an eye on, any unvented fuel burning heater, natural gas, propane, kerosene, all add a LOT of moisture to the air. Basically, any heater without a chimney/flue pipe does this. When you raise the temp, you will get condensation on metal objects, the more moisture, the faster/worse this can be. Most times its not a big deal, but I dont really like my tools rusting, which is why I went away from the big heater. That and the noise...

    Now if I were a smart guy, Id have run two trenches when I ran power out there, and put a gas line in the second one...but I wasnt thinking ahead at the time, so now Ill have to figure out another path for it should I decide to do that, which I probably wont.

    I have a small one of those. I get about 5 hours on low with a thirty-pounder.


    I stopped using them though because the condensation inside the garage after everything cooled back down was unreal.

    Years ago at work I rented the front section of a 30k sq ft building. The business around back decided to modify a similar heater with a thermostat, running it all winter.
    I opened my business one Monday morning and there was my pet shop cat by the door, dead from CO.
    Guy (owner) around back had their furnace repaired, I never got over my pet dying that way.

    I can't click a like on this post but it shows you CO doesn't pick and choose who it can kill.. Sorry about your pet, I would feel the same.
    I stress with my job as an inspector the necessity of CO detectors in any environment. I have two in my barn one on each level, one in my garage and two in my home on each level along with smokes in my house. I almost died once when I was 20 years old while hunting with my father in law up in Vermont because he used to use the Holiday camper propane stove for heat,,,, I had a hard time breathing and had a massive headache and got up from bed and opened the door and when I did the stove which was burning a very low flickering yellow flame rose to a nice blue flame and if I didn't get up neither of us would have... There wasn't much oxygen left in the camper... You can bet after that experience I never went with him again and I learned the dangers of CO..
    We used to read about "parkers" getting CO poisoning while keeping their car running in the winter but it never dawned on me it could also happen to me.
    Respect CO. I do.
