Product Description

Amazon.com

The Reddy Heater RLP30 30,000 Btu propane heater is a great option for the home user. For relatively little cost you get enough Btu to effectively heat a well-vented, medium-sized garage or workshop (up to 700 square feet). It's efficient, too, giving you up to 14 hours of heat from a single 20-pound propane cylinder (not included). Hookup is simple: just attach the included 10-foot hose and regulator, plug it in, hit the push-button ignition, and you've got heat. A built-in safety system turns the heater off if the flame goes out. CSA certified. One-year warranty.--Josh Dettweiler

Five Tips for Buying a Heater
Choosing a space heater is a matter of sifting through a bewildering array of types, power ratings, and fuel sources. Let's break it down a little to make the process easier.

What are the different types of space heaters?

  • Radiant heaters emit infrared radiation that directly warms the objects in front of the heaters (rather than the surrounding air). If you only need heat by a desk or in a small section of a room, a radiant heater is quiet and will use very little power.
  • Forced-air heaters use a fan to blow air that has been warmed by metal or ceramic heating elements. A forced-air heater is appropriate for quickly heating up a small- to medium-sized room, but can be noisy.
  • Convection heaters draw cold air from the floor; the air is warmed by heating coils and emitted from the top of the heater. A convection heater is appropriate for quickly heating up a small- to medium-sized room, but also can be noisy.
  • Radiators work by heating oil enclosed in a reservoir, gradually heating the surrounding air. If heating speed isn't an issue, you might want to opt for a radiator. These are extremely quiet and effective--perfect for bedrooms.

Should I buy an electric or a combustion model?
If you want a heater that will be available in emergencies, or that can heat areas larger than a single room, choose a "combustion" model--one that is powered by a gas or fuel like propane, kerosene, natural gas, or diesel. Which fuel type you choose depends largely on convenience and local availability. For example, diesel would be appropriate for a heater you take with you on long car trips.

How powerful a heater do I need?
Heaters are rated by BTU, which stands for British Thermal Unit (the amount of heat needed to heat one pound of water by 1 degree F). To find out how many BTU you need:

  • Calculate the volume of the space to be heated by multiplying square footage by height.
  • Multiply that number by 4 if your insulation is poor, 3 if it's average, or 2 if it's good.
The resulting number is a ballpark figure for how many BTU you'll need.

Do space heaters cost a lot to operate?
As a general rule, electric space heaters are more expensive to use than combustion models. To ensure energy efficiency, a thermostat is a must-have feature for any heater. For radiant heaters, models with a 360 degree heating surface can heat larger spaces. If you need a forced-air heater, models with ceramic elements tend to be more efficient.

Are space heaters a fire hazard?
Space heaters are implicated in about 25,000 residential fires every year. To ensure proper safety, always follow the manufacturer's usage instructions and fill out the warranty card to receive informational updates from the manufacturer. Also, look for extra safety features such as an automatic shutoff switch that can shut down the unit if, for example, it gets upended. In addition, choose a model where the heating element is adequately enclosed within the unit.

Can't stand the smell of half burned kero so bought propane. Quickly heats up 1000 sq ft. Think of four high output burners on gas stove at full throttle and you can imagine the heat output. Very noisy, you wan't be able to work long in the same room. NOTE: HD sells the 40,000 BTU for $90. 20 lb tank is extra of course, and $20 propane refill should last 10 or more hours.

I bought this unit to warm my two-car garage so I could work out there during the winter. Guess I should have purchased a larger/different model as it only warms it when the temperature is 35 degrees or higher and even then takes several hours. It sounds like a jet engine at idle which gets on your nerves if you have it on very long. It should work fine in the spring and fall to take the chill off so will still be useful. If you have a smaller space to heat it should work fine but be sure to get one bigger than you think you need.

A friend had a Reddy Heater, so I was able to 'try before I bought'. I had an electric radiant heater, not good for those days below 40 degrees and that is why my friend brought his unit over. Another friend had one of those pan reflectors that connects to a 20lb tank and that didn't even keep the edge off temps in his garage during cold winter temps.

With this heater, in about 20 minutes, you can work in your garage/shop with just a sweatshirt on days below 32 degrees (bottled water that I had stored there had froze, but melted during use of the heater). When temps are in the 30s, you can wear a t-shirt and you will be warm.

If you have a larger than 2 car garage, or if insulation is not as good, you may want to get a bigger unit with variable BTU settings. However, this unit is more than adequate for a standard 2 car, that is finished with insulated walls.

I ordered this unit through Amazon, but it came for an outfit called Go Camping. It was obviously a display model or a return. It was covered with dust and had several scratches. I would have returned it, but I needed a heater immediately for a project I have underway. I have also learned that the unit is available from Home Depot for $99.00. The box contains a bold print statement to call the manufacturer if there are any problems with the unit. However, the number provided takes you to a recorded message directing you to the manufacturer's website. The website is a simple half-screen of links to manuals and parts. There is no customer service number. If you do have an issue, you will have to take the unit to a service center.
