I have this heater we have had this S30 for almost 7 yrs now and have been very happy with this product , we are just now starting to use the heater for the year the heater turns on just fine after a couple of hrs the heater will shut off. what causing this to happen?
By Brennan W. on November 28, 2016
Answer:This could be caused by the oxygen depletion sensor shutting the unit down. You may want to try cracking a window and seeing if the unit runs for longer.

Will this unit work at 8,000 feet?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 27, 2013
Answer:While the unit can operate at this high of an altitude, it could potentially have issues with nuisance pilot outages. The oxygen depletion sensor in the pilot is calibrated near sea level. At elevations above 4,500 feet, the oxygen level becomes low enough that the ODS falsely detects a low enough oxygen level that the unit will shut down. Vented heaters are more reliable for high elevations.

I am looking for a natural gas heater like the propane ones you have listed that have 30,000 BTU's. I know you had them in the past because my neighbor has one in her breezeway and it keeps it toasty warm. Please let me know as soon as possible because I am looking to purchase a new heater soon.

Is this heater pretty quiet? Someone told me infrared heaters can be very loud. Can you please advise?
By Will M. on February 25, 2016
Answer:The SC30M-1-LP in operation produces 45 decibels and adding the optional blower will increase this to 55 decibels.

Does this ship to California ?
By eFireplaceStore on July 23, 2014
Answer:While our shipping department will allow this heater to ship to California, installation of a vent free appliance in that state is technically illegal. If the installation is to be inspected by local code officials or your insurance company, it would fail.
