Since radiant heaters heat people and objects like the sun, it offers advantages over other heaters that have to heat the air first before heating you.
Cleveland, Ohio (PRWEB) December 1, 2008
For homeowners, campers and outdoor enthusiasts looking for something unique and practical to add to their holiday gift list, the new Compact Portable Radiant Heater from Mr. Heater® could be one of the hottest gifts this season - literally.
Designed for personal heating in small spaces, the Mr. Heater compact heater is the first radiant heater of its size to feature a CSA certified low-oxygen shut-off system (ODS) and tip-over safety shut-off protection.
Mr. Heater was instrumental in the development of indoor-safe portable heaters featuring the ODS system which safeguards against carbon monoxide (CO) if used in an enclosed space.
"It's the perfect holiday gift for people who would like to take a little extra heat along to where they work and play," states Jeff Mack, President and COO of Mr. Heater. "Not only is it great for safely heating workshops, hobby areas, tents and campers, it's also a reliable emergency heat source for power outages."
The new 3,800 BTU/HR compact heater is the latest product in Mr. Heater's popular line of "Buddy Series" indoor safe heaters which include the Portable Buddy® (4,000-9,000 BTU/HR) and the Big Buddy® (4,000-18,000 BTU/HR). The 3,800 BTU/HR compact heater features a one button start and will heat up to 100 square feet for up to 5 ½ hours on a single 1lb. disposable propane (LP) cylinder. Since the heater operates on propane, it can be used in remote cabins and campers without the need for electricity.
"The beauty of radiant heat is that you can feel it instantly," says Dennis O'Toole, Mr. Heater's Vice President of Marketing. "Since radiant heaters heat people and objects like the sun, it offers advantages over other heaters that have to heat the air first before heating you."
There are two models available: The Mr. Heater Little Buddy (MH4B), which is sold through national hardware chains and home centers, and the Mr. Heater BaseCamp Pro Series™ Compact Heater (MH4BC), offered through outdoor retailers, outdoor gear catalogs and online Web sites. The suggested retail price for both models is $65.00.
Headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, Mr. Heater Inc., a subsidiary of Enerco Group Inc., is a leading manufacturer of gas-fired portable heating products, propane hose connections, fittings and accessories.
