Don't be silly, low is fine for that...
Below are two photo's for your information of the blonde Mr. heater mods.
shows the heater,where I removed the internal gas pressure regulator
and attached a low pressure LP hose to it. The draft hood
is a 8"x8" metal baking pan (not teflon coated), a 1-1/2" pipe flange, and 1-1/2 copper pipe found at a salvage
yard for $1.50.
I had calculated that a 1-1/2" vent pipe would be adequate for the 9000 BTU's of exhaust
gases on high. It was verified that the deaft hood
was negative pressure to the space, when the heater was on.
The larger Buddy heater, would need a 2" pipe.
The second photo
shows the vent termination, and vent cap. This consists of a 2" pipe flange, a 2" emt coupling for the flashing to rest on, a Cola can painted grey for flashing (not ocean rated BTW) held to the 2" nipple with a hose clamp and a 4" piece of copper as a vent cap with a center cap cover made from a pie plate and pop rivited to the copper cap.
Total cost including heater <$200. It works pretty well and keeps the rain out too
