I would seriously look at an indoor unit versus outdoor. All of the radiant heat is kept in the house and not lost outdoors.

All ... quick update ... landed on Windhager BioWin332. Wood Pellets! This has turned into a project though. Putting in a shed (161' from the house!) Trying to find ThermoPex, plumbing supplies, etc is challenging right now. Prices are high ... but Propane is getting higher! Anyone have questions? I can do a write up when it is all over. Thanks to @Tennman for a lot of help!

Cord wood can be the cheapest heat if you are healthy and can cut your own...
IMO it's the cheapest even if you have to buy it.

Up here spruce is $500 a cord...
mostly because the gooberment has it's head up it's ass.
All the firewood suppliers are waiting for permits and everyone is out of stock.
