Heating work space

Do any of you use portable heaters to help keep you warm on these properties during winter months? Im looking into buying something, wondering of any preferences....

I wear multiple layers and sometimes let my truck run when I am working outside or in unheated properties and the temps plunge below zero.

I'm leaning in that direction, do you use the 15,000 or 30,000 BTU? From what Ive read the 15k should be enough, while the propane would last longer....

We just used a 30k-80k propane convection heater to thaw out a small bathroom Sunday. It was uncomfortably hot in there, would work well to heat a medium room i'd think.

225,000 btu chimney style heater in the basement will quickly raise the temps in the whole house.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

When it's this cold out, 409 insta-freezes when you spray on counter tops, tubs, etc. In order to actually clean, it has to be warmed up some. Plus nearly every house we goto has to be thawed unless it's been previously winterized, and even then, it's a 50/50 shot it wasn't done properly.

re

I dont like being cold, I have a 200k btu portable heater that I fire up if i'm going to be at a property more then like 20 min. It's nice to be able to strip down to a tshirt when its below 0 out.
