Step 1: Place the Heater in a Central Location

The middle of a table works well, but you can also set up your Canadian space heater outdoors or at a friend's cabin. Choose a spot everyone can huddle around easily.

Step 2: Rotate the Thermostat

Twist the thermostat several rotations counter clockwise.

Step 3: Get Warm!

That's it. Take that touk off your head and enjoy the warmth of your Canadian space heater. Way simple, eh?

    Another bonus is that many of these heaters use renewable resources like rye and malt.

    You could make a small fortune selling a lower BTU fueled heater that offers more efficiency at our next space heater fest here in Haines. I think you would do quite well!!!
