A compact indoor/outdoor rated propane heater, the Mr Heater Buddy Heater is al dependable source of heat that doesn't require electricity, with a track record of reliability. .
As noted in the specs above, the Mr Heater Buddy Heater has three important safety features which set it apart from its competition:
How to Use:
If you're ever used a propane grill, you will find using the Buddy Heater's a cinch.
The Buddy Heater uses standard 1 lb (16.4 oz) propane cylinders that work with a No. 600 valve connection. These are readily available in your local hardware or outdoor store.
The propane cylinder screws in. You need to give it a little push to break through the seal on a new cylnder. Be sure to keep the heater and the propane cylinder upright while operating.
The piezo ignition doesn't require any batteries to operate. Once you have attached the propane cylinder, just push down on the knob and turn to the "light" setting. Once the flame ignites, adjust for the heat setting you want. (BTW, the unit is sold with a hang tag on the knob explaining how to do this.)
A favorite of RV'ers, campers and outdoor sportsmen, the Buddy Heater generates up to 9000 BTUs of heat (at the "high" settng) per hour in a compact unit, weighing just under 10 lbs. It's also great for spectator sports in cold weather, or to keep handy in the event of an emergency.
The manufacturer states that the Buddy Heater will run for 1-6 hours on a 1 lb propane cylinder. However in real life, most people find the Buddy Heater will run for about 4 hours on a one lb cylinder of propane at the low heat setting. It does burn through propane pretty quickly, so if you plan to be using it a lot you may want to consider buying the hose and filter to use with a refillable remote 20 lb propane tank. The filter is optional but highly recommended.
Although approved for use indoors, the propane Buddy heater is not as innocuous as your average electric space heater. Is it "safe" to use indoors? Yes, but there are precautions you need to take:
