I gather that you are talking about a ground pre-heat unit and not a 24 volt unit to mount in the aircraft during the winter.
I did a search on www.aviation-consumer.com. They published an article in November 2000 with the title Warm A Chilly Cabin. They mention briefly the 110 volt small ceramic cube heaters without any specific recommendations. These are available widely, probably more in the upscale mail order catalogs than in the Home Depot type of store.
You would need a portable supply of 110 volt a/c. The generator of choice would probably be Honda. They have a number of models starting at about 700 watts and about 26# weight. You would have to do some careful matching of generator to load, particularly if you have the engine preheat option installed. You could carry the generator and heater in your trunk, and let it warm up the cabin (and engine) while you attend to other preflight tasks (or breakfast or whatever).
If you are looking for inflight additional heat, the Aviation Consumer article specifically mentions a product line from D.C. Thermal, Inc. of 12430 Highway 3, Suite E-20, Webster, TX 77598, 800 590-7500. You really need to subscribe to Aviation Consumer to get further details. Once you subscribe to Aviation Consumer you not only get the print version in the mail, you also get online access to all published articles in a searchable form.
The thought occurred to me that its strange that my reply is going to someone in New England. I’m in Southern California and was brought up with the notion that snow was something that you went to visit - it certainly didn’t come to your house!
I dont know of anything else “portable” that you would want to use in the aircraft other than a 110 volt generator outside the plane for preheat on the ground.
One question: I would guess that the Cirrus, being built in Duluth (presumably just as cold if not colder than New England) has an ample exhaust muff heater. Is this so?
Related to heaters inflight, you may want to look at carbon monoxide detectors. This is another subject that has been covered in detail in Aviation Consumer. It seems that the units that you can get in home supply stores, etc. have a c.o. threshold set arbitrarily high so as not to cause the gas companies, fire departments, etc. a lot of “nuisance” calls. There is one unit (see either Aviation Consumer or www.aeromedix.com) which is sold specifically for vehicle (or aviation) use that has a much lower sensitivity threshold. These units will alarm if any kind of leak occurs between the muffler and the heater shroud. I would not put much confidence in the little disks that you see in the pilot catalogs to do this function.
