Locally, winter has arrived. Given our recent 7.2 shaker, one begins to think hard about staying warm if there is a utility failure.... I have a primary oil heater (A Monitor direct vent - 43K BTU) with a set of portable kero heaters One is 23K BTU - a Kero Sun clone and a pair of 9.5 K BTU "IR" directional kero heaters. The one downside to burning kerosene indoors with the potable units is the amount of moisture these type of heaters can generate. It helps that, in winter, here in Anchorage, the air is as dry as found in the Gobi desert... Storage of fuel is somewhat problematic, but there are at least 5 major fuel dealers here in the Anchorage Bowl, so the odds are that obtaining a couple of 55 gal drums for the winter will be - at least in theory - possible. We do keep 5 x 5 gallon containers on hand, and the Monitor can burn ultra-low surfer fuel (Diesel road fuel) without an issue. . The Monitor requires 117 VAC, which I can provide via a battery/inverter setup. This is more for rolling blackouts. Idea is to ramp up interior heat with the monitor and then use the portables to maintain until the power is back up. We at least have a plan of sorts and the installed equipment on hand w/fuel to make it happen. What do you have planned to stay warm?
