Can you use a Big Buddy Heater For Sleeping?


Recommended Posts

I have a 7x14 camper with a heating problem. I currently use a wood stove to heat this camper which is not very well insulated. It works great but the problem is its very small so when you go to sleep you wake up freezing. I have a sunflower heater but i dont want to sleep with that on. Can i use a big buddy heater for sleeping? I mean is it safe? I have a CO2 detector in the shack and plenty of windows i could crack and i know those units have an auto shutoff feature on them. I just dont want to have to buy a vented heater as they start out at 400$ minimum

It has a low oxygen shutoff.

The buddy burns efficiently with little CO but that is if it is clean and in good condition. A dirty element or partially blockage will effect the burn and will give off more CO.

Is it totally safe, no but I've used them while sleeping on the ice.

Provide venting for fresh air and combustion air.

A CO detector that you know works and with proper batteries.

Be sure that combustibles can't come in contact with the heater in the middle of the night.
