We have a small portable electric heater. No particular brand. They all have safety switches on them. Ours are just the standard type heaters. There are some that have fans on them to blow the heat out. Others that swivel. A swivel type with a fan would be nice. It would help distribute the heat.

If we were full timers we'd probably get one of the catalytic type heaters. They use very little propane and no electricity. They are much more expensive than the small electric types.

By the way we were at the south rim of the Grand Canyon this past April. It got down to 11 degrees a couple of nights. And our furnace went out on us the first night we were there. Thought for sure we'd get cold but between the built in fireplace heater and the small portable heater we stayed perfectly warm.

We run our fireplace day and night when needed and have never had any safety issues. The portable one usually is needed only at night during the coldest part of the night. During the day we simply disconnect and put the heater in the closet.

Good luck.
