Heater under window

Recommended Posts

Anyone have a non vented heater under a window? Does the moisture from the heater make the window fog up?

I'm building a small 4x6 light weight house to use while the ice is getting thick enough for my 8x16 wheel house. Cost of a vented heater would be as much as I have into the house but it would be nice. I've had both vented and non vented and this is the only instance I would go non vented.

It will fog all windows in the fish house, even if it's not directly under them. I have a 6x8 and a 6x15, and both houses have non vented heaters. The larger one has double door on the back, with aluminum frame, and the frost builds up on it from the moisture.

Why not go with a mr. buddy heater? It would heat a house that size easily, especially in early season. It has brackets to mount on a wall, and still portable for other uses.

The other option is those small fish house heater that take a 3 in stove pipe. Best of both worlds, inexpensive and safe with no moisture. All kinds of those stored in sheds

Not sure why all you guys have fogging problems, I have used a big buddy to heat my castle a few times and I don't have problems when doing it.

I'm thinking of useing one, I have one in each of the 3 sizes. My biggest worry is with 1.5" foam walls and such a small house that I'm constantly be turning the thing off and on to keep from being cooked out, same with a vented Nu-Way style heater. I would like a heater with a built in thermostat. Going wood crossed my mind briefly, I already have a stove and pipe but it will take up a lot of room and I will be pulling this house off every night (think of it has a hard side portable) and pullining it home on a trailer and worry about the air from driving pushing down the chimney and pushing out an ember and starting the house on fire. Wood would be hard to regulate the temp also.

So while I was writing that last post I've had my 3800 btu mr buddy basecamp going in the house that's out in the garage. The temp in the garage is 47, and the humidity 49%. The house isn't insulted yet and I don't have a seal around the door yet. After 10 minutes it's 85 and the humidity actually dropped to 37%.

Yes use the Mr Buddy, it'll be perfect. Put a small window near roof and crack it a little to adjust heat, works great.

I've got 2, 3" round vents and can't decide where to put them. I'm thinking one on each gable end at the top. Or one on each end, one on top and one down low to creat a natural circulation or convection?

    • Oh, you haven’t seen me upset.  After I miss 5 straight - then I get upset! 😁
    • dog is good too, did not know it then, but when I was over seas and had some and found out later.. it was the last tome ...  would not say try it cause they are my friends....
    • I'm sure it's tasty, but I have never tried dog either. Calm down people, I am just kidding around.   We used to keep landscaping supplies out on a farm in Rosemount back in the day, and blast away at them when they emerged from the barn. Sticking with the Clint theme.............. Farm cats gotta eat, same as worms.   Being a member of the dove family, I am sure the meat is simular.  
    • Remember, he liked the neighbors food after he tried it. 😋
    • I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.
    • I got primary on the Crow-Hassen with a rank of #21. New experience for me as well, with MBRB, been a member for a few years just could never get a hunt.   DanBo - That was one I had on my list as I have a buddy that lives just a few blocks up from there.
    • try them before you knock them....
    • we've only  used the adapter so far at the campsites, as I've only seen the standard plug in's at the boxes; and only running some lights and AC at the most at one time, no fridge to run
    • That is crazy nice Hoey.  😎   But for $3,400 I'll just keep my dirt flakes on the floor and may be pick up another used sled or wheeler! 😋
