    Space Heaters

    Not every room can accommodate a full-blown fireplace, so the proper space heater can be a real lifesaver when the temperature starts to dip. Space heaters are perfect for smaller rooms, drafty areas, or places in the home that just don't receive proper heat. They are also great for people who may like a little more warmth than the rest of the family.

    I have a 250 gallon propane tank and I want to install a 18,000 BTU vent free gas space heater. What size of regulator do I need to install in my 1/2 copper line feeding it? Also, what size would I need to run a 24,000 BTU vent free gas loft burner in a fireplace?
    By Will M. on September 21, 2015

    Any heater, especially vent free heaters, must be installed by a legally qualified professional installer to maintain warranty and for safety. However, any universal regulator that drops the pressure to between 11-14" w.c. is typically sufficient. The line size would depend on the length of run between the tank and appliance, but your LP supplier should be able to advise to the specifics.

    Please explain the difference between infrared and blue flame space heaters. Is one the best or is it just the appearance?
    By Will M. on January 26, 2016

    Both heaters offers models with the same level of heat output and efficiency, but the designs differ in the way they supply heat to the room. Infrared heaters warm a room by warming the objects (furniture, appliances, people) as opposed to the air. Many customers find that this type of heating is more comfortable, as it does not create a stuffy zone around the heater. However, the heater is limited to the reach of the infrared rays. Blue flame heaters warm the air, as opposed to the objects in the room. They can effectively warm a greater area through circulation, but the space immediately adjacent and in front of the heater can be uncomfortable.

    Would you recommend a vented or ventless type of propane heater for a basement?
    By eFireplaceStore on January 7, 2015

    Because of the relatively low amount of air changeover in a basement, I recommend sticking with a vented appliance. The vent free unit will consume oxygen at a level that will be difficult to make up quickly.

    is it possible to by-pass the safety device on the floor model heaters?
    By Will M. on January 5, 2016

    A technician may bypass a limit switch for troubleshooting purposes, but a safety switch should never be left bypassed as this could result in fire or the release of carbon monoxide.

    We are looking at purchasing a natural gas space heater to use in emergency power outage situations. It will not be permanent. Any suggestions about which one to purchase? Blue flame or Infrared?
    By Chris C. on February 4, 2016

    Blue flame style heaters are more of a subtle method to heat the space, as they will heat the air within the space. Infrared heaters are more common as they will heat objects within the space effectively heating the air. For a more semi-permanent type installation, an infrared heater would be better than a blue flame heater.

    I'm looking to replace an older natural gas wall heater. It is small but useful in winter for our patio. It has a blower on the top and it makes a difference. Could you recommend a similar one? On our current one, the pilot wont stay lit, so we have to turn it off. The blower also cuts off or won't turn on. We need a dependable one.

    I have a space 30 by 30 8 foot ceiling. I'm looking for a Empire propane ventless heater?
    By Chris C. on September 22, 2016

    To heat the described space, I would suggest either the Empire SR30 Infrared Vent-Free Gas Heater or the Empire BF30 Blue Flame Gas Heater.

    I have an 1100 square foot insulated loft in a "barn" that has a natural gas supply and needs a direct vent heater or wall furnace. The 2160 square foot "barn" has a circulating in floor heat system that we keep at 55 degrees so the loft needs something to take the chill off when we use it. I am thinking we should have a 25/30k BTU capacity. An Empire or Williams brand has been suggested. What are your recommendations?
    By Chris C. on November 12, 2015

    To heat the sized space in question, I would suggest a model such as the Empire DV25SG Direct Vent Gas Wall Furnace - Natural Gas or the Empire DV35SG Direct Vent Gas Wall Furnace - Natural Gas. With efficiency taken into account the larger model will produce around 23,800 BTU per hour. If these models seem to come up too short in providing the necessary heat, the next model is a bit different in design being a counterflow unit, but it would be an excellent source of heat. Please view the Empire DV55SPP here. This large model is capable of providing 41,000 BTU per hour.
