Better heat source for ADU

Ok, we have ADU with 3 garages down and 1200 sf living quarters 2nd floor. Right now that ADU has what is called cadet heaters in every room and they do suck badly.
ADU was lived in by previous owner while they built main house, but there was bunch of them, so they produce a lot of body heat. :-)
Now it's a single person and he is cold all the time.
Property has propane and electricity. ADU has both. I think it has propane. Sure not.
I set him up with radiant oil heater but that one is good for main room. Taking shower is quite a military boot camp adventure.

I am seeking reasonable suggestions for better source of heat to keep the place reasonably warm without running electrical bill up the roof and MAJOR remodel.

Yep. MIL or ADU. Same thing. It's normal 2 story building, normal framing, nice house actually. Son lives there now and he's on his own meter now.
