If you need some good auxillary heat...this one is probably the best you can buy.
It is good workmanship, but filled the house with kerosene smell no matter what I tried as far as adjusting wick and using k-1 fuel.
Dorothy J. Taylor
It is heating the same space equal to the propane (very large) unit and is costing a third of what the propane heater cost to run.

I live in a very isolated rural area and my local electric co-op is less than dependable. The power went out for 7 hours once because of a windy day. I have a bad feeling about this winter so I decided to buy a kero heater in case the power goes out. I live in a small trailer that has electric everything. My grandparents used to have a KeroSun that was great so I looked for those and found that the company is out of business, so I tried to find one with good user reviews that was as close to that design as possible. The Sengoku CV-2230 looked promising.

Having never done it before, assembling the heater was a nightmare, though they thoughtfully pre-installed the wick. One big down-side I noticed right away was the flimsy handle. It's a big heater and I'm afraid to pick it up with that handle, especially when it's full. They have small "U"-shaped clamps at the hardware store that I'll attach to each end of the handle where they fit into the holes in the body so the handle can't come out. That should make me feel a little better.

Follow the instructions. Fill and light this heater *outside*, let the flame settle, then bring it in. Don't forget the part where it says to let the entire first tankful burn outside so that the varnishes and residues left from manufacturing burn off and don't create noxious fumes.

When the flame was fully-lit I turned it down and brought the heater indoors. I found that the flame was too high even on the lowest wick-stop setting AND burned mostly on the left and right with practically no flame front and back. The flame was much higher on the right, also. I fiddled with it to no avail and realized the wick needed some surgery.

Our large, drafty, almost uninsulated rental home has a heat pump for "heat", and after one winter of freezing to death we bought this heater... Boy, is it nice to be warm again with REAL heat! We had blocked off rooms and used electric heaters before, and at times supplemented it with the central system which had to use resistance heat at the tune of $2.00 and HOUR to run. Seemed the second the central unit went out, the house was freezing again.

This Kerosene heater is very easy to use, requires minimal maintenance, and puts out a LOT of heat fast. Only real smell is at start-up and especially at shutdown, but if you take the heater outside to start and stop, actual in use smell is almost zero if you use it properly. By properly for my particular unit means flame height as high as possible w/o curling (sooting), and adjusting the burner. Quality of the fuel obviously is a factor, and I have had pretty good luck with the un-dyed K-1 from several stations. With good fresh K-1 fuel, and the unit adjusted properly at operating temp, there is no odor, or so faint I have to try and smell for it, and there has absolutely never been any sooting. You will learn how to adjust the unit as the fuel warms/unit gets hotter, and really enjoy the experience. My family enjoys the soft steady glow the heater makes, and it's nice steady heat, not the on/off feeling from central.

Although the product is perfectly safe for indoor use, I do use and highly recommend a CO detector, never sleeping with the heater on, and not have it too far from where you are to be able to keep an eye on it.

Pro's not mentioned:

- Actual use times relative to consumption seem longer than stated. I have used it 12 hrs straight, and no way used close to all the fuel.

With deep winter upon us, these are great alternative heaters for people on electric heat. They provide 23,000 BTU - more than enough to heat 2-3 easily. VERY hot. Foutchie loves to roast her fur next to it. Runs for about 12 hours, a little longer if you cut it back. Easy refill, good protective guard. I have paid $50 more for ones not as high quality.

I have had this brand before and they are long lasting.

We use the Kero-Heat 2230 to heat the lower level of our 2600 sq ft home, built in 1940. I did not have high hopes for it at first, and was really expecting it to chug black clouds of kerosene fumes and be high maintenance with wick replacements, soot, etc. In reality, this is the cleanest burning kerosene heater Ive ever witnessed work! We keep our heat at 60f and this heater will heat the downstairs to 72-74f degrees. Its amazing.

It is much more efficient on fuel than I thought too. If you are having a problem with it consuming too much kerosene, then dont keep it on "hi" all of the time - moving the knob to a lower burn will produce almost just as much heat. I used to keep it at high until I realized I didnt have to.

Also, we add a product that you can buy at Wal-Mart, or anywhere on the net that costs about $4.00 per bottle. It keeps the wick clean, takes away ANY kerosene fume smell from burning kerosene, and seems to make the kerosene last a little longer. You only add 1oz per 5 gallons of Kerosene.

I really like how the electric igniter works flawlessly. The fuel gauge is accurate and the fuel cap is tethered with a chain, so you wont lose it.

If you are on the fence about the 2230, be assured after you try it out you will be telling people what a great deal you got and "they don't make 'em like this anymore!" because it really is a quality workhorse.
