    Customer Questions & Answers
    By Andrew from Fort Mill, SC on February 1, 2016
    Can I use this SunStar infrared heater inside a 14 foot enclosed trailer? I need it at night when temperatures drop below freezing. The trailer is stored remotely so I couldn't be present during operation.
    By Will M. on February 2, 2016

    A 14' trailer would not have adequate interior dimensions for this heater to function without issue. As such, you would not be able to use this product.

    By Tanya Bounds from Aztec, NM on January 7, 2012
    Where is this product made?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 9, 2012

    Sunstar currently manufactures residential heaters, such as this model, in Charlotte, NC.

    By ken from North Carolina on January 29, 2013
    Is this more efficient than comparable models built in the mid-1990's?
    By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on February 6, 2013

    Sunstar has only updated the body of this heater since the 90's. The operation and efficiency have not been changed. As the manufacturer put it, "she's the same old gal with a new skirt."

    By Jack from Seattle, WA on October 22, 2015
    Could this SunStar Corcho vent-free propane infrared heater with manual controls be used in a cargo van?
    By Will M. on October 22, 2015

    This cannot be used in a cargo van.

    By Jim from PA on September 14, 2013
    Is an automatic blower available for this unit?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on September 16, 2013

    Unfortunately, a blower is not available for this particular class of heater. Only when stepping up to the 18,000 BTU version of the heater is a blower available.

    By Kate from NY on March 20, 2013
    I am looking for a heater that I could use in a small greenhouse (approx. 10' x 12'). What does "manual controls" mean? Can i set the temperature or is it just on/off?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on March 20, 2013

    The particular unit does indeed have simple on/off controls, with no thermostat option. Unfortunately, there is not a propane version of this heater with thermostatic controls. However, we do offer another manufacturer that does offer an infrared heater with this option. The unit is the Empire SR10T Infrared Vent-Free Gas Heater with Hydraulic Thermostat Controls - Propane. The unit has a slightly greater capacity and has proven to be a more reliable brand.

    By Kathy from Marietta, GA on January 10, 2016
    Can you use the SunStar Corcho vent-free propane infrared heater with manual controls indoors?
    By eFireplaceStore on January 11, 2016

    Certainly. Both the natural gas and LP versions of this heater are designed for indoor use applications.

    By Marcia Eickmeier from Timberlake, NC on September 29, 2012
    I am trying to compare the efficiency of a ventless propane SunStar Corcho heater with an electric space heater. How many BTU's are produced per gallon of propane?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 1, 2012

    Each propane supplier is different, but the average supplier's propane will contain 91,500 BTUs per gallon. Based on that average, this heater would operate for roughly 9 1/2 hours on one gallon of propane.

    By Tim from Belle Fourche, SD on September 24, 2015
    Can this SunStar Corcho vent-free propane infrared heater with manual controls be calibrated to operate at 4900 feet above sea level?
    By Chris C. on September 24, 2015

    At altitudes beyond 4,500 feet above sea level, the oxygen depletion sensor will not allow the unit to work properly. The heater would like experience pilot flame outages frequently due to lower oxygen levels. I would recommend a direct vent heater in place of a vent free heater for such an installation.

    By Tom from CO on December 1, 2014
    What altitude is this unit certified for?
    By Will M. on December 2, 2014

    The ODS pilot assembly for vent free heaters is calibrated to operate normally up to elevations of 4,500 feet. Above this elevation, the oxygen depletion system will cause the unit to shut down.
