Options for in cabin heaters

Even though I live in the panhandle of Florida, I''m interested in an in-cabin heater to get us through the winter. It will not be for overnights as much as cold afternoon stops.

My understanding of electric heaters is that most of the resistance heaters would use up major amperage (and therefore drain the battery). My concern with fuel heaters would be fumes.

I need an inexpensive and non-permanent option since I only need a heater 2 1/2 months a year. Therefore I can remove it easily come late february.

Am I dreaming that anything fits this description, or should I just drive the heater off a separate battery?
