I have one of these...there are similar ones that are cheaper but this one I love. It links to my phone so I control it by phone only, even when not home.
Swampratt would have to call you on his land line to adjust his temp if he used one of those.:thumbup3:

Just curious... I know that condensation is a byproduct of burning NG/LP but does the type of heater (blue flame vs infrared) make a difference how much condensate is put out? It would help not having to run a humidifier all winter. Been wanting to put one in for backup, but I get tied up trying to decide between the two. Plus paying to run the gas line is another hurdle...

Any kind of heat will "dry out" the air.

After I had my Mr. Heater installed,,,
A friend asked me how well it worked.

He too was tired of his furnace being worthless in a power outage,,,
He installed a unit exactly like mine as a backup system.

Since then he's lost power twice for 2-3 days,,,
The Mr. Heater kept him and his family from freezing to death.

Mine and his are the "Radiant" type,,,
They have 3-ceramic plates that glow bright orange.

And yes it does get a bit dry in my mobile,,,
But not so much as to make me want a humidifier.

In a typical construction heater, propane burning creates 0.98 gallons of water per 100,000 BTUH (less than 100 percent efficiency).

I noticed the last few weeks the thermostat had some elements go out where you couldn’t read the “Set to” reading, the inside reading was fine. I thought the batteries were going to need replacing.

Well tonight I was going to bump the temperature up a few degrees But noticed the inside temperature was all that was displayed and it said it was 95 degrees 😬

Replaced the batteries now it was 99 degrees with the light staying on was the unit off the wall still.

So it appears the Honeywell thermostat needs replaced. I guess it’s off to Locke supply on Tuesday and get a new one.☹️

Hope that fixes it or I’ll have to call out a heat/air guy.

On the plus side I purchased a no vent wall mounted heater that will heat 1000 sq ft. Lit it turned it to 2 of 5 sitting and it’s fine. Best $250 I spent at Homedepo. This is the second time in 10 years I had to use it.

Easy this time since we have electric and I don’t have to hook up the battery/inverter to run the small square cage.

God Bless and Merry Christmas and to all good night

Seems this has been my favorite song of late.



Beautiful song, the thought (not the music) reminds me of Leonard Cohens 'Hallelujah'

Love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah
