Spring is here in northern Virginia and it’s time to do many things for a better life. One of those is cleaning and storing the kerosene heater until next winter.
The Sengoku CV-2230 KeroHeat Convection 23,000-BTU Portable Kerosene Heater above is comparable to the Durheat kerosene heater featured in today’s video. I purchased the Duraheat kerosene heater at a local home store in 2011 and the price has risen $10. The Sengoku CV 2230 can still be purchased for $129 at Amazon.
A kerosene heater can be an effective resource for surviving power outages and cutting energy bills in the winter. This is only possible with complete understanding and adherence to proper operations and safety procedures. In addition to the safety precautions noted in the video I also have a fire extinguisher near the heater when in operation. You must never leave a room with any type of portable heater that is in use.
This video shows what to do before a portable kerosene heater is stored for the summer. Be sure to remove the batteries and then follow along with the video.
