Mr. Heater Now Offers Safe Heat for Small Spaces
With "Little Buddy" Portable Propane Heater
CLEVELAND, OH (May 2, 2008) -- Mr. Heater® Inc., a manufacturer of consumer heating products and accessories, has announced the launch of its new Little Buddy™ Indoor-Safe Propane Heater as part of its popular line of "Buddy Series" heaters.
"Mr. Heater continues to lead the way in indoor-safe heating technology, and the Little Buddy is the latest innovation in compact portable heat for enjoyable comfort with safety in mind," states Jeff Mack, President and COO for Mr. Heater. "The Little Buddy is portable, easy to use and easy to store -- perfect for heating workshops, hobby areas, enclosed porches, hunting blinds and campers."
The indoor safe Little Buddy is the first compact propane radiant heater of its size to feature a CSA-certified low-oxygen shut-off system (ODS) and a tip-over safety shut-off. At 3,800 BTUs per hour, the Little Buddy can heat up to 100 square feet for up to 5 ½ hours on a single 1-lb. disposable propane cylinder. The Little Buddy's suggested retail price is $65.
The Little Buddy heater is designed to provide safe radiant heat for workbenches, enclosed porches, picnic shelters, tents, truck caps, campers, power outages and road emergencies.
“The Little Buddy provides the warming comfort of radiant heat you can feel the minute you start it, and that’s a big advantage over catalytic heaters which just heat the surrounding air and not the person directly," adds Mack.
The Little Buddy is the newest heater in Mr. Heater's line of "Buddy Series" heating products, which includes the Portable Buddy heater (4,000 - 9,000 BTUs/HR), and the Big Buddy (4,000 - 18,000 BTUs/HR).
