The 10,000 BTU Mr Heater is 25% off on amazon right now. I was all excited. It let me place the order. But i think pretty soon i will get the email saying it cant ship to cali. Bummer man. Seems like a good deal.

The Camco olymipians much more expensive. Been wanting a cat heater for several winters now.

The Mr. Heater products are not catalytic, they are referred to as a blue flame heater and are much cheaper to produce.

If it is what you want the price is the lowest in the past 30 days and is a 25 percent savings.

Oh I see.
Darn think someone taught me that last winter.

I'm not really sure what I want. Catalytic must use a lot less propane? Might cancel the order now.

If working properly, either one should use about the same amount of propane for the same heat output, assuming both are unvented. It's the same basic chemical reactions taking place in either case; you're combining the propane with oxygen to produce water and carbon dioxide, the same basic thing as burning any hydrocarbon, and that releases the same amount of energy (i.e. heat) regardless of how exactly it's done.

Just make sure you crack a vent went using it, and make sure your co detecter works. Or get one if you dont have one.

You can say that again and by the magic of QUOTE you just did.

IN fact this can not be said often enough.

Many will go to sleep this winter with a gas heater, especially Catalytic types. And wake up... NEVER.. thanks to the heater.

I'm really curious to know actually how many people have died from this. I hear it repeated all over, but I wonder how much truth is behind it.

I came across this video a few weeks ago, for anyone using or considering using one, I think it's worth watching...

I see posts all the time from people that DIED and then posted a bad review[emoticon] Just kidding. I think this is one time Canada and California have a GOOD REGULATION for possible bad results from marginal products in regards to safety. Doug

Taylor Dzman had a buddy heater in his truck camper and ran around with a portable carbon monoxide detector taking measurements from all angles and distances including right up against it..The reading was always zero...His video's are still on youtube..
