Now that the weather has changed and the temperatures have dropped, portable heaters for outdoor areas or marquees become necessary. However, heating outdoor areas is not as easy as it seems. There are many factors to consider.
Types of Portable Heaters
Heaters can be split into 3 fuel types
Electric heaters are the safest, quietest, and most reliable but they produce the least amount of heat. The majority cannot be run off an extension cable or generator which limits there use out doors or in marquees.
If you need to produce a lot of heat, quickly, kerosene and propane are the only way of doing this. As they burn fossil fuels, they burn off the oxygen in the air and replace it with carbon monoxide. For this reason, they can only be used in well ventilated areas where a carbon monoxide alarm has been installed.
The blow heaters will force out a strong gust of warm air, the radiant heaters will heat the object they hit.
