Portable Heater FAQ's
Can Mi-T-M heaters be used indoors?
No, fuel burning portable heaters are intended to be used in a well ventilated area. Please refer to your operator's manual for the fresh air requirements.
How do I size a space heater?
The most important factor when sizing a space heater is the amount of space you have to heat. A general rule of thumb is that you can heat approximately 25 square feet for every 1000 BTUs a heater puts out.
Do all portable heaters require electricity?
Mi‑T‑M portable heaters that have a blower motor or a fuel pump will require electricity to power those units. As an example, all of the Kerosene forced air, LP & Natural Gas forced air and the radiant portable heaters require electricity. The convection, outdoor patio heater and the tank top heaters do not require electricity.
