Question Anyone Seen These in Action?

Pardon me if I have already posted this however...

It is a fully vented Catalytic propane furnace

From the specs it used very little propane and the start up and running electric draw is very low too

As far as I know, this man is the only one making a vented one

Yes they are very nice and very expensive! If I needed a new furnace it would be some thing to have a close look at. I can't sleep through my furnace running but by the time it's cold I usually am some where where there is electricity and just use a the electric heater.

a wee bit off topic

I've always wondered about those Coleman catalytic heaters and the same for those older Kerosene space heaters.
I realize the "furnace" type would be vented outside but the regulator tenting type... How safe would they be if they're not vented?
If it burns fuel and oxygen it obviously creates carbon monoxide. I guess I'm referring to those found in camping stores and used for tents.
I don't know if it's based on the fuel to air ratios or in this case the exhaust to fresh air ratio.

I actually have one and use it as a preheat for my shop out back. I have a regular 1500 watt heater and one of the infrared heaters. But the catalytic provides that instant heat.
When I built my shop I tried to make sure that it was sealed as best I could so I'm always careful about it's heating.
While tent might breath nicely a TT might be more sealed, hence that safety factor. Unless I'm seeing things incorrectly.

Jerry I think they are illegal in Canada for use in living spaces. They have O2 sensors but how little is too little O2? You need to have some thing open in a camper to make up for the O2 depletion.

I wasn't sure about them being illegal so I checked our local sports supply places including our Canadian Bass Pro and Walmarts
They're very much prevalent. I found nothing under any Canadian Law about being illegal. However, that's not to say where they are safe or not. Like anything else they have there place and maybe a little commonsense to be applied.

I actually used mine today in the shop for about 5 or 10 minutes just to kill the dampness and chill. Those things should be used sparingly and cautiously

I would check your local laws about ventless heaters Mr Heater will not ship to Canada or MA here in the states due to regulations.
