    Approximately, how long would a full tank last on high-setting?
    1 Answers
    That would depend on the size of a tank. It would burn approximately a 1/2 pound an hour of fuel.

    Can this be used for a small bathroom? We have a natural gas connection left from our old dryer. I just want to warm the bathroom up from 50-60 to 75 degrees when the bath is in use. This is an 8' x 12' room.
    1 Answers
    The BTU rating on this heater is too high for installation in a bathroom. Currently, the only heater we offer that is safe for installation in a bathroom is the Empire SR6 Infrared Vent-Free Gas Heater - Propane - SR-6LP.

    Can this heater be equipped with thermostat?
    1 Answers
    It may not. If you are looking for a heater that offers thermostatic control, I recommend the Empire SR10T Infrared Vent-Free Gas Heater with Hydraulic Thermostat Controls - Propane - SR-10TLP.

    Can I use this SunStar infrared heater inside a 14 foot enclosed trailer? I need it at night when temperatures drop below freezing. The trailer is stored remotely so I couldn't be present during operation.
    1 Answers
    A 14' trailer would not have adequate interior dimensions for this heater to function without issue. As such, you would not be able to use this product.

    from Belle Fourche, SD asked:

    Can this SunStar Corcho vent-free propane infrared heater with manual controls be calibrated to operate at 4900 feet above sea level?
    1 Answers
    At altitudes beyond 4,500 feet above sea level, the oxygen depletion sensor will not allow the unit to work properly. The heater would like experience pilot flame outages frequently due to lower oxygen levels. I would recommend a direct vent heater in place of a vent free heater for such an installation.

    What altitude is this unit certified for?
    1 Answers
    The ODS pilot assembly for vent free heaters is calibrated to operate normally up to elevations of 4,500 feet. Above this elevation, the oxygen depletion system will cause the unit to shut down.

    Is an automatic blower available for this unit?
    1 Answers
    Unfortunately, a blower is not available for this particular class of heater. Only when stepping up to the 18,000 BTU version of the heater is a blower available.

    I am looking for a heater that I could use in a small greenhouse (approx. 10' x 12'). What does "manual controls" mean? Can i set the temperature or is it just on/off?
    1 Answers
    The particular unit does indeed have simple on/off controls, with no thermostat option. Unfortunately, there is not a propane version of this heater with thermostatic controls. However, we do offer another manufacturer that does offer an infrared heater with this option. The unit is the Empire SR10T Infrared Vent-Free Gas Heater with Hydraulic Thermostat Controls - Propane. The unit has a slightly greater capacity and has proven to be a more reliable brand.

    Is this more efficient than comparable models built in the mid-1990's?
    1 Answers
    Sunstar has only updated the body of this heater since the 90's. The operation and efficiency have not been changed. As the manufacturer put it, "she's the same old gal with a new skirt."

    I am trying to compare the efficiency of a ventless propane SunStar Corcho heater with an electric space heater. How many BTU's are produced per gallon of propane?
    1 Answers
    Each propane supplier is different, but the average supplier's propane will contain 91,500 BTUs per gallon. Based on that average, this heater would operate for roughly 9 1/2 hours on one gallon of propane.
