    Reddy heater

    Hi All,



    I was curious. I'm considering buying a torpedo type kerosene heater - the
    kind used on construction sites, etc. 115,000 btu. I rent a small T-hangar
    - an absolute freezer in the cold weather - and thought the heater might
    work for a quick warm up of the hangar space (engine pre-heating done
    separately).



    I think those heaters really blast out the heat so I was wondering if there
    may be any pitfalls with that kind of heater that I might not be thinking
    of.


    Any thoughts?



    -Rick

    Reddy heater

    Rick,
    I used to have one in NY for heating my garage in the winter. I used to
    rebuild VW engines there (1/week) for about 2 years.
    They use up the O2 so you have to have some good ventilation. I used a
    dryer tube thru a hole in the door to suck in air for the input to the
    heater.
    The kero smell was pretty intense and when my eyes would water I'd shut
    it down for a while ! Obviously I was much younger and dumber then.

    Here (much milder of course) I have the Coverit fabric hangar and we use
    one of those KERO wick space heaters. I was REALLY surprised how quick it
    heated it up on a 45 deg day.

    Reddy heater

    Rick,

    I use a 145000 btu torpedo, can't remember the brand,
    but it heats my hangar in ohio just fine. Its not
    insulated, but you can't see daylight with the doors
    shut. It has the smell, but not real bad. It also
    works for a preheater, blowing back under the cowl and
    out the front. A friend of mine has used this method
    on his 182 for 30+yrs, and says it works better than
    any he's tried.
