Hi. a couple of months ago, in one of the newsgroups, I read about a very
popular quartz heater but I can no longer find the thread. I need to
replace the space heater in the living room and would like to
find a reference to the quartz heater many people liked. Also
recommendations for other heaters are welcome.
The make/brand is irrelevant. They all work the same way. You might as well ask
if a GE lightbulb is better than Philips or Osram. Build quality may differ
See my earlier answer in another group.
I'd advise you get one with say 3 bars so as to provide flexibility with the
heat setting though.
Not likely. 150 M BTU per hour?? That's on the order of 44 MW. It would
go through a 150 lb bottle of propane in just minutes (if you could even get
enough flow rate through a standard propane rig to supply it).
Even 150,000 BTU per hour is more than double a full-house furnace.
A friend of mine in Wilkes-Barre, PA owns a large Victorian home and
he tells me his aging boiler is rated at a whopping 425,000 BTUs (I'm
taking him at his word).
His home isn't well insulated and given his excessively high gas bills
I suggested he arrange for a home energy audit, which he tells me he
has done. I also suggested a new (and presumably much smaller) boiler
is likely to be one of the key recommendations and I'll be curious to
learn just what they have to say about his current system.

That's insane. I used to live in a 1200 sq-ft 100yr-old wood framed
2-story house in the Canadian prairies. -40 winters, older furnace with
cast-iron heat exchanger. Our average monthly heating bill was just a
bit over $100 CAD.
