Before considering the Stansport butane heater for a tent […]

There aren't many things out there that are more valuable to campers that enjoy year round camping than a quality, well made tent heater. Having a well working heater for your tent can make a big difference in a camper's comfort and ability to sleep well when out in the field or campground in the colder months of the year. A tent heater can also help keep campers warm when the temperature outside unexpectedly drops to a dangerous level. Camping heaters for tents come in different sizes to match the camper's tent size and can make the camping experience even better than it already would have been by providing a warm environment for sleeping and anything else that is done while camping inside the tent.

Camping Tent Heater Models

The camping tent heater was originally developed to provide people with a source of heat for inside their tent while camping at times of the year that are usually cooler than the common summer months of camping. Coleman designed one of the original models and has been one of the most popular of camping tent heater brands on the market ever since. Most camping heaters are fueled by propane which makes them even more popular because propane is readily available at even the most far-away stores and can be used surprisingly safely.

The Propane Tent Heater

When anyone is looking to buy a propane tent heater, there are a few things to look at. First is the size of the area that it will need to heat. The amount of heat that each model is designed to heat is typically displayed somewhere on the unit or the packaging that it comes in. Portable heaters comes in different level intensities of heat output so you obviously do not want to make the mistake of trying to use one that is too small for your intended use because you will go through your fuel too quickly running the unit at max power and quite likely never actually get warm. On the other hand, a propane tent heater that is too large is not only inefficient, but it's over-all size will require more hassle transporting it around and may even cause an uncomfortable overheating feeling inside the tent. Choosing just the right size is as important as checking on the performance of each one. Having a look at tent heater reviews left by other users online is a great place to start.

Coleman Tent Heater Models

It is no secret that the Coleman tent heater is the most popular brand of outdoor heaters for tents. You're sure to recognize the Colman brand by the familiar Coleman trademark which is the name surrounded by red in a long horizontal oval. The history of Coleman and their outdoor recreational products can be traced all the way back to the company's beginning in 1905. Coleman has a reputation for providing quality camping equipment at economical prices and the coleman tent heater line-up is no exception.

Tent Heater Reviews by Users

There are many tent heater reviews listed on the different sites online telling the world what that individual's experience has been with a specific product. These are great places to research the best model for your needs. But, care must obviously be taken when reading user reviews because you'll typically find more negative reviews than positive ones simply for the fact that people are more likely to take the time to leave a review when they are dissatisfied than when they are satisfied. Despite this fact, seeing what other users have to say about the tent heater model you are considering is always recommended.
