Propane Heaters

Need a rugged heating solution for a garage, outdoor job site or workshop? Propane heaters generate thousands of BTUs of heat with no need for electricity

How many BTUs do you need?

Burning propane depletes oxygen, so most propane heaters are for outdoor use only, however several, such as the Mr Heater Buddy heaters, have safety features making them suitable for indoor use. They're great for using in an RV or large tent if you're camping or hunting. Keep one on hand at home in the event of a winter power outage!

Propane heaters should always be kept away from flammable items and used with sufficient airflow and ventilation - even the ones which are "indoor safe." They also get very hot - use only with adequate supervision if you have children or pets. We strongly recommend you keep a carbon monoxide detector and a fire extinguisher handy if using indoors. Refer to the product's user manual for manufacturer recommendations and safety precautions.
