What additional hoses, connectors, etc. are required to hook this Empire SR10T infrared vent-free gas heater with hydraulic thermostat controls to a portable 20 lb or 40 lb cylinder? I am trying to keep a 100' square remote well pump room from freezing.

In addition to the bottle itself, you will also need a primary regulator and supply hose like the Firegear 32" Liquid Propane Hose and Regulator Kit - FG-32LPHRK
. The 60 inch hose length should be used to maintain proper distance to the heater. You will also need the 3/8 M.I.P. fitting to connect the gas line to the heater. This type of fitting is commonly available at home improvement stores.

Answer:Per the manufacturer, this heater can be expected to operate reliably at elevations of up to 6,000 feet, but no higher. The ODS pilot assembly cannot be adapted for higher elevation.

What size LP tank does this heater require? My local codes only allow up to a 20 pound LP tank. Do you have any auxiliary LP heaters that would accommodate this code requirement?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 8, 2014
Answer:It is possible to use up to a 30k BTU heater for several hours at a time on a 20 pound LP cylinder. Based on the available fuel and rate of vaporization, this heater could operate continuously for approximately 5 to 6 hours, depending on the outside temperature. Given that the heater will cycle regularly in most circumstances, the 20 pound cylinder will suffice well.

How does this unit affect air quality and does it have any odor of combustion at all?
By Brennan W. on January 26, 2015
Answer:Because this unit uses air in the room for combustion, it is not advised that a vent free heater be used for longer than four hours at a time. There is a slight smell created by the additive used to give propane it's smell in the event of a gas leak that is not overtly noticeable but can be irritating to those with sensitive noses or allergies.

Will this Empire gas heater heat a 200 square foot open room with 7 foot ceilings. Also, can you place heater under a window?
By Will M. on March 30, 2016
Answer:This heater requires 14" of vertical clearance from the top of the heater to a window sill. For the space you describe, adequate combustion air will be available and this heater has the capacity of providing heat to a 286 square foot space with 8 foot ceilings. As such, this will be more than sufficient.

I have a utility room that I'm trying to keep warm but it's a small room, 10 X 6 X 7. I have a 1,000 gallon propane tank to use as a fuel source. Is there something a little smaller than this Empire gas heater that still has a thermostat or that can be hooked up to a thermostat?
