My mobile home is about 900 square feet and I'm trying to decide the best place to locate two new propane wall heaters. They will be 20,000 BTU and each cover roughly 500 square feet.

The master bedroom is on one end of the house, and my office is on the other end. Should I put one in each room? Or maybe in locations that are a little closer so the whole home is heated more evenly?

Any thoughts for those of you who have done this very thing? Any regrets after placing a heater in a particular room?

I think there are code requirements concerning heating in a bedroom.
I would locate them in a central area to try to heat the whole home.

Nest man, ... Why are you looking at Propane Wall heaters & not using a Furnace?

Because I'm off grid and furnace blowers consumer large amounts of power. Perhaps one day my solar power system will be sufficient enough to run the furnace blower most of the day during the cold months, but for now, our system is not big enough to support that luxury.
