Hunting camp Help

Me and my oldest friend and hunting buddy go to camp ever fall for hunting and this year we are goin a bit longer then normal so we went up this past weekend to clean up, the cabin is actually a friends and he remnoved the propane tank this summer but forgot to tell us so now it is heatless. is a small 2 level cabin, but i also need a heater for my house this year to help keep down the cost of oil, so i was wondering about these new IR heaters and fireless fireplaces any one have any input on what would be a good buy for a small cabin and a small house?

From September to April my world revolves around hunting the rest is preseason.

Re: Hunting camp Help

Electric is an option. I just can't stand it when I read that "you will save money with this type of heater". It itakes so much poser to produce so many btu's. Some forms are better than others, but you can't deny the fact you can't get more out than you put in.

Few years ago when oil got so high my inlaws got an eden pur heater. Oil bill was cut in half. Light bill tripled costing more than they saved in oil. Plus they weren't comfortable as it was a centeralized heat source. Those things are heated by a light bulb.

If someone could figure out a way to get more heat from less power they would be very very popular people.

Ventless propane or natural gas.I have natural gas at my house.I also have a 90%-95% furnace.I installed 2 ventless IR heaters and my house is a constant warmer area for half the cost of running the furnace.Granted you do need to leave bedroom doors open for the cheaper heat but I'll accept that trade off.Except for special nights.Lol.
