We are using about 500 lbs of propane a day to heat this small 900 sq. foot tent from 8am-11pm everday. The customer wants it to stay a constant 75 degrees, and with the outside temp at 10 we’re definitely burning through the gas. Think of it as about 25 of those small tanks that you use on your outdoor grill…

The heaters actually don’t “use” all of the propane, but they need a large supply to draw from or they will shut down or start blowing cool air.

Most customers don’t know the ins and outs of tent heating, BTU’s, and propane usage. Give us a call and we’ll give you a quick lesson!
