ABOUT TENT HEATING
  • Lb White 170,000 BTU forced air heaters require 1-100 lb propane tank and 110 volt power to operate. When they start up they draw up to 7 amps. Included with the heater is a diffuser and a thermostat which can be mounted in the tent to control the temperature.

  • To calculate heating requirements this formula is fairly accurate for tents. First calculate the volume of the tent, so for instance a 20×20 would be approximately 6,000 cubic feet. Next calculate the temperature difference. If the outside temperature is -30 degrees Celsius and the desired inside temperature is +20 degrees Celsius, then the temperature difference is 50. So multiply 6,000x50x0.4= 120,000 BTU’s per hour.

  • The 35,000 BTU radiant heaters will run for up to 12 hours on a 20lb propane tank. How ever a bigger tank is recommend because the valves sometimes freeze when using the 20lb tank. This is a directional heater so it is ok to be placed close to a tent wall.

  • The 125,000 BTU radiant heaters will run for up to 18 hours on a 100lb propane tank. This is a 360 degree heater so it has to be placed more towards the center of the tent so it won’t melt the walls.
