As a brand, they've been around a long time and there isn't a whole lot to go
wrong with a propane heater, short of the ignitor perhaps.
Most of those heaters will tell you what to expect in terms of fuel consumption.
As a fellow Kanuckistani, I'd find out about that first: how MANY 20-pound
cylinders you are going to go through during the course of a week.
You got natural gas where you live? (I'm not talking beans.)
No NG access, thats the problem (another thread on this back a day or
Heater is going to be used to quickly (or as quick as possible) warm up
a 18x16 shop, and then let a 16k btu electric heater maintain it.
That's a good price. I run mine from a 50# tank.
The propane models will have a bit of flame out the front, so watch
where you stand.

And that open flame dosent bother you in the shop?
Still makes me nervous.
On a positive side, Im not expecting to need the propane version for
extended periods of time.
My 16k BTU heater pulled my shop from 1.9 C to 16.9 C last night in
about 15 minutes. I was pretty happy with that.
I put the heater several feet away from my workspace such that the
warm air is all I get. These heaters all have exposed flames, some
more than others but none are flamethrowers.
