I plan on using the heater at a 7000 ft elevation? Is that possible or do I have to modify the unit or buy something different? Thank you.

I do not recommend using a vent free heater at an elevation over 6,000 feet. The oxygen depletion system that is part of the pilot assembly is calibrated at sea level and will only operate reliably up to 6,000 feet of elevation. Nuisance pilot outages will be experienced at higher elevations. I recommend installing a direct vent heater instead, such as the Empire DV215SG Direct Vent Gas Wall Furnace - Propane - DV-215-SGLP

Do you have a propane heater with a remote thermostat so that one can set it for the temperature of the room then shut off and on to maintain that temperature?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 23, 2013
Answer:While some of our larger console and wall mounted heaters have this option, the smaller blue flame and infrared heaters rely on internal thermostats only. I am not aware of a small room heater that has a valve configured for remote thermostatic control.

Is there a high altitude kit for this Empire BF10 blue flame gas heater? I'm roughly at 6,500 feet above sea level.
By Will M. on November 3, 2015
Answer:Vent free appliances will not function at elevations above 4500 feet and no kits will be available to correct this.

Without fume venting is there any concern for burning to create an unsafe condition when used inside a household?
By Chris on March 9, 2014
Answer:Vent free appliances burn the fuel in such an efficient way that the only by products from combustion are carbon dioxide and water vapor. However, if the unit is installed in a smaller space, you could have an oxygen depletion issue where the unit would extinguish itself to ensure that the oxygen level in the room does not become too low to create a health hazard. I would strongly check with local code enforcement officers to ensure that vent free appliances are allowed in your area as well.

Does the heater give off an odor when burning?
By eFireplaceStore on December 24, 2014
Answer:Blue flame heaters are some of the cleanest burning vent free heaters on the market, burning their fuel completely with nothing in the way to impinge flame. However, anyone with a sensitive nose will still be able to detect the slight odor that is released from the methyl mercaptan that is added to the gas.
