Old Coleman Heater

3 posts in this topic

Hi all, I have a chance to pick up an old white gas powered coleman catalytic heater for little or nothing. Do they work pretty good? I know there's some kind of wick inside, how often does it need to be replaced? Thanks for any help. Robert

The bad thing about these heaters are that you have no control of the temp. There is just one temp and that is hot. As far as the wick I am not sure about that my dad has one and we have never had to mess with it. I would stick with a sun flower or some thing in the Propane area so you have more temp control.

If you indeed can get one for next to nothing and money is an issue preventing buying a new propane heater, you can easily regulate the temperature inside whatever shelter you have by opening doors, vents, windows, etc.
