Don't know if oil filled heaters are all that efficient.
Thanks in advance.
I use the coil heaters, I have 2 of them and used them just a week or so ago when the S&B furnace died, this is a big house and I closed doors hung blankets in the open arch to upstairs, and kept one in the livingroom and one in the kitchen, alaong with a gas fireplace, I survived a week.
I thought it was cold in the house until I had to go out and come in, I was surprised at just how warm it was.
It was -41C outside (-40F) and we got a huge blizzard that had closed roads, so that is why it took a week to fix.
The coil oil heaters are great because you can have 3 heat settings and it will turn off when the desired temp is reached,
My neighbour who is a farrier and often goes out in the winter, uses his coil for heating the RV while he is at work ... I am sure he turns on the LP when he gets in ... it gets mighty cold here on the prairies, and these units are reliable and safe... the 2 I use are 30 years old and have been loaned out and used by many over the years....
