    Ice hut heater safety

    Hi Guys
    I just bought a Portable Buddy heater and I have a pop up 4 man shack (Subzero). When running the heater should I leave the door of the hut open to avoid carbon monoxide problems? Or would it be safe to run the heater with the door zipped up. (I have a small vent in the roof which I guess would always be open?)

    Thanks
    Steve

    The small vents are enough. I have the same heater and I have never heard of anyone having an issue with these heaters although I do know someone that theirs caught fire but that is extremely rare.
    After 250 days a year on the water and ice I still feel I need more Time on the Water

    Depending on the heater some have a built in spill switch or air switch ect but try to keep air moving or a window open a bit

    if its a buddy heater they have a O2 sensor so you'll be alright. I usually leave a crack or open the door after a few hours just to get some fresh air anyways.
