Propane Heater VS Diesel Heater: What's the Difference?

Propane Heater VS Diesel Heater: What's the Difference? We'll give you the rundown on how each one works, and we've checked out the pros and cons of each heater so you can make up your own mind.
Propane Heater
Propane Heater draws in air from an external intake pipe for the internal combustion process, where it’s mixed with propane gas. This process ignites the gas and heats up the large surface area of the heat exchanger.

Pros

● Adding a propane heater is relatively straightforward
● Purchase cost lower than a diesel heater
● A reliable and quiet form of heating
● Uses less power than a diesel heater
● Gas is readily available

Cons

● A gas heater flue cannot be installed too close to a window, door, or another gas appliance inlet or outlet, or under an enclosed annex – the same applies to a mobile heater
● A licensed gas fitter is required to connect the gas heater
● In temperatures of two degrees and under, the heater won’t function 
● As the butane in the gas bottle will not vaporize properly
● Produces a wet heat resulting in unwanted humidity and condensation
● Gas prices can differ greatly
Diesel Heater
A diesel heater works the same way as a propane heater, drawing in air from an external pipe and passing it into the heater's combustion chamber. The air is mixed with diesel where its air is automatically ignited and heats up the large surface area of the heat exchanger.

Pros

● You don’t need a license for installation
● Diesel is readily available
● Superior heating performance
● Better temperature control
● Produces a clean dry heat

Cons

● More expensive to buy than a gas heater
● You need a space big enough to install the unit
● Generally noisier than a gas heater
● Clear space required below the heater for the exhaust
● Extra diesel tank needed
So which one is better?
Propane Heater and Diesel Heaters are both good products that will keep you warm in chilly conditions. Running costs work out fairly even so in the end, it's a preference choice.

Now let's have a look at our Diesel Heaters.
