If you plan to camp in a cold environment you might want to check this list with best camping tent heaters, all Amazon bestsellers that will make your camping more comfortable.
About the safety of camping tent heaters
When the temperature drops outside, it will drop in the tent as well. Tents are typically just windbreakers, but such heaters can make life easier, and they are constructed so that you can use them in the tent in a safe way. By this, I mean that you have security mechanisms integrated into such tools. A good tent heater will auto shut-off if it is tipped over or if detects a low oxygen level.
Note also that there are safety regulations for tents’ manufacturing as well. So tents are also becoming safer in the sense that fire-retardant materials are used. But use some common sense here and keep flammable objects away and use the heater in a tent which is large enough so that you can indeed keep your sleeping bags and pads at a safe distance.
What types of tent heaters you can find
Most of the models on the market are propane and butane gas heaters, but there are also electric heaters which you can use if you are in a camp with all facilities and power.
But there are also some incredibly light wood burning stoves on the market that are completely portable, though those require a tent with a pipe jack and they can be used only in the areas with the wood of course.
Some limits and power requirements
You might want to bear in mind that propane heaters may not work properly at high altitudes, say above 7000 feet (2100 m) or so.
In the descriptions of such heaters, you will always find the information about the appropriate tent size. But this may be misleading if you do not have an appropriate tent. In other words, make sure that you have a tent with an enclosed design that can keep the warmth. So if the tent has mesh sections, there should be a way to keep them closed. Otherwise, use a tent with solid PVC windows, and with vents that can be closed.
Bear in mind also that you heat the tent’s volume so the actual tents area can also be misleading. An A-frame tent or a dome tent will surely have less volume than a cabin tent or a tunnel tent.
You will see some terms like catalytic combustion, so this is about the fuel oxidation to release heat energy and about the destruction of pollutant gases in the exhaust.
In the case of electric heaters, obviously, the major drawback is that you cannot use them just everywhere. There are options to use your own portable generators and combine with such heaters. With such tools, you can use electric heaters almost anywhere. If you need something for heating and cooking, please check our lust with the best wood-burning tent stoves.
