    Customer Questions & Answers
    By Jeff from Grayling, MI on September 27, 2014
    What is the difference between manual and thermostat models in the SC18 heaters?
    By eFireplaceStore on September 29, 2014

    Answer:
    The manual version of this unit allows simple on and off operation of the heater. There is no way to automate the heater. The thermostatic version allows you to set a temperature on the heater, to which the heater will modulate on and off automatically.

    By Christine from North Carolina on January 3, 2014
    Can this heater be hooked up to a 40 pound Propane tank ? If so, can you recommend what hose to use? I think I would need at least a 12 foot hose to reach through the window to the propane tank which would be outside the house. Also, does the piezo ignition work without batteries? Can the unit also be lighted with a match?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 3, 2014

    Answer:
    This unit is indeed a low enough output that it could be operated on a 40 pound propane tank for approximately 12 hours at a time, at full output. The tank would then need a short time to recover and vaporize additional fuel. The piezo ignitor is a jewel action type and does not require batteries. It is also possible to manually light the pilot with a match or barbecue lighter.

    A flexible 1/2 inch LP gas line can be used to connect from the unit to the wall. A rigid 1/2 inch pipe should be used to run the rest of the way from the cylinder to the interior wall.

    Can you convert this unit to use Natural Gas?
    By Will M. on July 5, 2016

    Answer:
    Unfortunately, vent free systems are not convertible.

    By Jeff from Grayling, Michigan on September 22, 2014
    Can anyone tell me what size and type the fuel inlet is for this heater?
    pipe or flare? Male or female?
    By eFireplaceStore on September 24, 2014

    Answer:
    Per the manufacturer, the connection to the regulator must be made with a 3/8" male N.P.T. to 3/8" male flare fitting.

    By Phil from Pickens, SC on October 25, 2013
    What size room will this heat?
    By Kevin E. - NFI Certified Specialist on October 27, 2013

    Answer:
    We use a general rule of thumb of 35 BTU per square foot, when estimating heating capacity. Per this rule, this heater could effectively heat approximately 470 square feet.
