Mr. Heater Portable Garage Heater
The garage can be a very dark and cold place to work in during the winter. While you can design your HVAC system to include heating in your garage, there is another more convenient solution. You can use Mr. Heater’s F232000 MH9BX Buddy Garage Heater. This is a portable radiant warmer than is very convenient to use, whether indoors or outdoors. It is also one of the best garage heater products on the market.
The MH9BX Buddy is a liquid propane-based radiant heater. Unlike conventional radiant heaters that rely on ambient air, Buddy here relies on propane energy to ignite and heat up its porcelain-coated heating element. This provides ample heating that can last several hours if you use it on the lowest heat settings. There are only two heat settings in the Buddy: 4000 BTU and 9000 BTU. Turning the Buddy to the highest setting will give you warmth that will last only 3 hours. Turning it to 4000 BTU will help you stay warm for at least 7 hours.
The Mr. Heater Buddy Garage Heater can warm up a room with an area of up to 225 square feet. It features a ceramic burner tile. Mr. Heater mounted the ceramic burner on an insulating material with shock-absorbing properties. This gives the heating element the durability that people need. It is also easy to remove from its mounting plate. This in turn makes replacing the heating element a breeze.
Part of the Buddy’s ability to heat up a garage or any room is the integration of a heating surface coated in ceramic. This helps radiate heat over a wider area. Porcelain is also more durable than conventional materials.
Safeguarding the heating element and surface of this best garage heater is a wire guard. Mr. Heater designed it to withstand the high temperatures of the device.
The Buddy Garage Heater also comes with an Oxygen Depletion Sensor. It shuts itself off if it senses low oxygen pressure. If the device also gets tipped over, the auto shutoff mechanism also kicks in. These features guarantee your safety whenever using the Mr. Heater Portable Garage Heater.
