Ordering and Shipping:
I ordered the SR10T unit at this store after trying to find it locally because of concerns of damage in shipment. In the end, I ordered on-line because of the competitive price and free shipping. I accepted the normal shipping terms at check-out and much to my surprise the unit was delivered the next day!
I contracted with a local installer to run the pipes and install the unit on the wall in my basement.
They were able to do all of this in about 2 hours time. (it was a very short run to connect to the natural gas source)
It only took 20-30 minutes to actually hang the heater on the wall with the 4 "drywall" bolts.
Experience after 2 months of actual use:
We are heating about 200 square feet in our finished basement room.
Sometimes we open up a second room which adds about 50 more square feet.
The SR10T is more than adequate for the space we're using it for.
We are very pleased with the unit so far and feel secure that we have a secondary heating source should we loose electric power.
Pros:1. Unit is constructed from quality materials and is small enough that it doesn't detract too much from the room decor.
2. Simple to operate. (Pilot mode, Off mode, 1-5 temperature range setting)
3. Easy wall mounting installation.
4. Reliable secondary heat source in the event that first heat source is not available(power outage, etc...)
Cons:This is not a big deal but it is necessary to hold the Pilot knob down for 60 seconds when first starting up the unit.
It would be nice it one could simply hold the Pilot knob down, press the "lighter" button and then immediately set the desired temperature range(1-5).
(not a big deal, but a "nice-to-have")
