I use a heater just like that one in my shop. It works very well for me. With the govt requirements on diesel these days, I use diesel. The old diesel smelled and probably smoked a bit. The new stuff is as clean and a lot cheaper than kerosene. I think your shop is large. The part of mine that I heat is only 1200 sq. ft. This heater works very well. Probably the next cheaper thing you can do is a heat pump. Your part of the country works well with a heat pump I believe. They are not cheap but the gas heaters that are rated for shops uses a LOT of fuel. I saw a semi truck load of those go for $50 each at an auction. Might watch your sources. I do use a carbon monoxide detector with my Kerosene heater and there has never been a problem except for the sawdust getting in the detector.
