The hot oil heaters can be found on bird websites---It's all internal (no fumes) but do make sure you research first...I am not sure they are all created equal (if that makes sense..)
Basically, you don't want anything that produces any sort of exhaust/fumes--- even candles and oil warmers are dangerous to birds' sensitive respiratory systems.

Life in the Great White North is extremely expensive with electric heat, hence unless one has no other choice other than electric, a furnace that burns fuel is needed and they all produce exhaust /fumes. All fuels, including wood furnaces require the use of carbon monoxide detector.

In each Morning's early light; there is a promise, an Amazon makes!
