I run the heater continuously and it keeps the room at a level heater for boat



Broan-NuTone (6201) Big Heat HeaterThe name is 100% correct on this one. The heater is small but mighty. We ordered this when the temps dropped to below 5 degrees. Our apartment is horribly insulated and the central heat was barely keeping our living room at 60 degrees. This little monster kicked in and helps to hold the temp at heater for boat








Caframo True North Deluxe 9206 120VAC High Performance Space Heater"This manufacture makes heaters for West Marine – which I have 3 of. When I was in need of another (new travel trailer) I found getting them direct was cheaper than West Marines’ price. They have as many features on a portable heater as your going to find. I like the fact they lay prone. No chance of kicking them over. I trust them to stay on unattended in my boat and beach cabin as well."
