Re: Heat For Shed


i'm gonna use the heat from my OWB to heat my shed, shop, and house.
For just a shed, one of those 110v oil filled radiators should be OK. At least 3 heat settings on them.

Will they heat a area of 200 sq.ft. in Northwest Ohio? It gets cold here.

Consider a small direct vent propane unit,or depending on the time you will spend there,even pellet stove.
