Salamander heaters are the types of heaters you usually see in a construction site or in a well ventilated place. These types of heaters are typically portable forced-air or convection heaters and most often fueled by kerosene. You might have heard them referred to as torpedo heaters before as they are long and round sort of like a torpedo.

Salamander heaters are not suitable for homes, as mentioned they are used mainly on construction sites and places that are very well ventilated such as a large shop or garage.

These types of heaters produce heat by pushing cold air through a hot flame. This is done by use of a fan that is inside of the heater. The reasons that these are only usable in well ventilated ares is that they typically use natural gas, kerosene or propane gas which will produce harmful fumes. Additionally they tend to produce condensation.
