How does this heater get away with no carbon monoxide gasses?
From the www.heatershop.com
Web site, they say:
What makes a gas heating product vent free ?
A precision engineered burner (made in the USA - these are not cheap imports) that provides 99% fuel efficiency. This is accomplished by advanced air/gas mixing chambers, burner designs, and many other features all developed to produce the cleanest, most complete possible burn.
These units do not require a vent or chimney to exhaust the normally unused by-products of combustion found in vented heaters.
My unit actually comes with an O2 depletion sensor, which shuts down the burn if Ox drops from 20% to 18%. I think that too much CO cannot harm you provided that there's sufficient oxygen, which I would guess is counting on the room being some level of drafty.
I also noticed they have a $59 overhead radiant electric heater that I might look into.
Jon, good to see you finally making progress.
Yes, progress feels good. I just need to follow through to a point where I can make building progress (meaning NOT to fully insulate this winter).
You guys I swear, you can be sooo silly with your comfortable working environments.
No reason to heat the entire workshop to above 70.
Wayne, I admire your ruggedness, but one thing I have found is most underestimated is the importance of a comfortable and local shop. While you are indeed a marvel to the contrary, I am a firm believer that the shop itself is one of your most important tools. If it's comfortable in the shop, you're going to be in there more often AND having fun.
Seriously, I have heard by many that they would have built longer at home if they could. So that is what I'm setting up to do -- year-round building of ALL the parts, with only final assembly and flight testing at the airport.
I hate cold feet.
