New shop heater

Picked up a Mr Heater 30,000 BTU heater for my workshop.
Last couple of weeks with my old piece of crap heater shutting off or not even lighting was enough.

Happy with this unit so far....comes with an optional fan.

I'm going to need to get a 100 lb. tank instead of using multiple 20's.

No boat, back in the suds.

A few days last month in the single digits was enough to freeze up one zone of hot water baseboard that hardly ever calls for heat...has a short section that should not have run a few feet through an uninsulated space. When the boiler was installed we added anti-freeze to the water that fills the three zones but through time water gets added and antifreeze breaks down so I'll drain, refill and test this spring....

The snowblower is still topped off with the gas I put in back in December.....and spring is right around the corner
