Stove as heater?

My Boler didn't come with a furnace, so I was wondering id I could use the stove to heat it. Is this safe practice if I open the top vent and crack the door window?

Okay, so what is the difference between heating with the stove and a tent warmer?

Using stove for heating imho is unsafe.Use a approved heater.Canadian Tire has them.Catalitic.

Hi Dan
No ones a pain here.Were all here for same reason and that is to learn and be sociable.

Canadian Tire and Wallmart have them in their camping sections.I will try to find photo.

Canadian Tire link.

This will give you an idea what to look for.

Stove as heater

Hi
We use our stove to heat up the Trillium all the time. Did the same with our former tent trailer.

Once we are in the trailer for the night we turn the stove on for a couple of minutes. Vent is cracked as is a window or two. The stove gets the trailer nice and toasty and then we turn it off. The key word here is "TURN IT OFF". Same thing in the morning if its cold, turn the stove on for a few to warm up while making the morning coffee.

I personally don't see any difference in having the stove on to cook with, having it on for a FEW MINUTES to provide heat or to have a catalytic heater on. Those portable catalytic heaters don't vent.

I have mild asthma and react to fumes (and dogs:cry). We got a catalytic heater numerous years ago and ended up taking it back. It started me wheezing, yet the stove never does.

Just make sure its only on for a few minutes to take the chill off and to be extra safe, have a carbon monoxide detector.
Nancy
