Tent Heating
Tent heating is extremely variable. It's impossible to call weather conditions any more than a few days in
advance of your event. We can give good advice based on past experience. This can help, but is a far cry from
exactly what you may or may not need.

  • We have never had to heat a tent in late June, July or August.
  • We have heated tents in late May, early June and early September.
    (this is rare)
  • Early May and late September, we recommend that you  reserve at
    least some heat capacity to take the chill out of the air. (You may
    need more heat depending on conditions)
  • April and October plan on using a large amount of heat.
  • The rest of the year it can be extremely difficult and expensive to keep
    a large tent comfortable.

Other tent heating basics you should know

Tent side walls are a must when heating a tent.

Tent heaters use propane for fuel but need a small amount of electricity to operate the heaters igniter and

Tent heaters normally installed on the outside of the tent, but if there is plenty of ventilation you can put them
on the inside. (If its a windy day, moving the heaters inside the tent makes them more effective).

Using multiple small heaters rather than one large heater makes a tent more comfortable.

Tent heaters are controlled by a thermostat similar to a house thermostat.

The heaters we use are UL listed for tent heating. They come in 2 sizes 80k BTU per hour and 170k BTU per hour.
(We have a heating specialist on staff that will assist you with your heating needs).
