Indoor Portable Propane Heater
If you find that there are certain rooms in the house that always seem to be chillier than other rooms during the winter, you are not alone. It can be hard work for a whole-house heating system to evenly heat every room, especially since all of the rooms may be different sizes. If you use some rooms more than others, you may not want to run you heating system high enough to keep those few rooms comfortably warm. In order to save on your heating bills, you may wish to invest in an indoor portable propane heater.
The reason that many people who are in the market for a space heater choose an indoor portable propane heater is that it doesn't use electricity. This will really help cut down on the power bills, as opposed to using an electric space heater. Electric heaters also tend to get quite hot, so one must always pay attention to what is placed near them. Although some people like to go with the radiant heater because it doesn't get hot to the touch, those types of heaters are more for heating up the person who is near them, rather than for heating up the whole room.
The indoor portable propane heater doesn't get as hot as an electric space heater, and tends to do a better job at heating a whole room than the radiant heater. They are very portable and easy to use. Depending on the size of the area you wish to keep warm, you will be looking at a variety of sizes or types of units. If you are planning to heat a large area, such as a family room, you may want to look at the type that uses a 100 gallon propane tank. This can be a very efficient unit that does a great job of heating a big room and its efficiency can help save you money. A large unit like this can also be used for smaller rooms if you have a good place to put it, and that will allow you not to have to refill the propane tank as frequently as if you have a smaller unit.
A smaller indoor portable propane heater may work better for you in a smaller area. You probably don't want the heater to be the main attraction in the room, and if you get a very large unit, that may be the case. Smaller units are also very efficient and easy to use. They are quite portable and can easily be moved from room to room as needed. Another advantage to using propane over electric space heaters is the fact that if the power were to go out, you would still have the means for heating your home. Since they don't depend on electricity, they can be used anytime and anywhere. Many can be used both indoors and outdoors, which gives you a distinct advantage, especially over an electric unit that requires an outlet close enough to use. By choosing a propane unit that fits the size of the room you wish to heat, you will be able to keep warm and save money at the same time. Your savings on your monthly power bill might mean that your propane unit will quickly pay for itself.
