I don't think anyone need worry about fumes from the Dandy under floor heater. All the burning takes place outside the Dandy The living area is heated through a heat exchanger. The only smell we get is from bits of dried grass and leaves falling through the grill and getting hot.

I had a destiny with the Riveria heater most of the smells are just muck. Vacuum it out and have a CO2 alarm. If your sited on long grass it's the grass that's burning it's a very safe heater.

Never ever confuse CO2 with CO!

CO2 is a suffocating gas and kills by excluding oxygen. It can be dangerous in mines, where it's called 'black damp'. It is heavier than air and consequently can lie undetected in lower levels of the mine.

CO is far, far more dangerous and kills by binding to the haemoglobin in the red blood cells, preventing the blood from absorbing oxygen.
