well Charlie…do you have the means to crack a door or window to allow kero salamander heat? I heated an unheated space in NY for years with a 60.000BTU unit…only needed ventilation on start-up and shut-down (it stinks) but was much cheaper to operate than my replacement propane unit.

if you go salamander, keep everything away from it (like shopvac hoses). they throw off some serious heat.

related but perhaps an aside, we owned a grocery store and the freezer unit went out…our contractor decided to thaw it with a salamander…it was back in the days of poly pants…his pants went “poof” and he was standing in his shorts…funny to see but in retrospect, he could have been severely hurt (that stuff melts and will stick…3rd degree burns there).
