    Could this unit run on propane?


    1 Answer

    This model can only use natural gas. However, we do offer the same heater for use with propane; please see it here: SunStar Manual Control SC18 Vent-Free Radiant Infrared Propane Room Heater.

    How does this SunStar gas room heater attach to our natural gas supply?
    1 Answer
    A rigid steel or CSST gas line would need to be run to the installation location of the heater and the final connection would be made with a short flex connector. Ideally, the supply pipe would be concealed in the wall. I highly recommend contracting a local plumber to run the gas line.

    Do all three burners of this SunStar manual control SC18 vent-free radiant infrared natural gas room heater always burn at the same time or, if the thermostat is set on low, can one or two burners run alone?
    1 Answer
    There is no thermostat as this is manually operated, but turning the dial from positions 1-3 will turn on one, two or three plaques.

    from Culpeper, VA asked:
    September 8, 2015
    Is this SunStar manual control SC18 vent-free radiant infrared natural gas room heater safe around animals? Are there any flames that are visible? How do I start it? What type of igniter does this unit have?
    1 Answer
    This heater is safer than other traditional heaters as the ceramic plaques are heated and this provides radiant heat to the room as opposed to heat being provided via an open flame. The heater does have a safety guard to prevent contact with the open flame, however, children and animals should be monitored closely while the heater is in operation due to the hot surfaces on the heater (as is the case with all hearth appliances). This product features a Piezo or "push button" ignition system.

    from Torrington, CT asked:
    March 3, 2012
    Does this heater have an open flame?
    1 Answer
    This type of infrared heater uses a very small, contained flame that heats the individual burner plaques that make up the element. Unlike a standard wall heater, this unit does not heat the surrounding air, but radiates heat directly onto the objects in a room. It is an effective means of heat that is considered to be safer overall and can help in keeping the air in a room from becoming stuffy.

    Great Heater
    This is the second Sun Star natural gas heater I've purchased. I mounted this one in the garage to keep it warm during the winter. One of the best investments I've made.
    ProsEasy to use, easy to install
    ConsNone. Just the cost I suppose.

    A terrific heater!
    Ordering was easy and the heater arrived a few days later with free shipping. The heater was easy to install, is easy to operate and warms the rooms quickly. It saves a lot of money on the heating bill.
    ProsEverything about it.

    This is the second heater we've bought in 3 years. This is for my parents house. The one for our house is larger, it is the only source of heat , they are GREAT inexpensive to run and you don't have to put them on full heat. These are both in mobile homes and do a excellent job.
    ConsThere are no cons as far as we`re concerned

    Owner of three
    Purchased my first vent free heaters (another brand) over ten years ago for my home. Can no longer get the parts for, so if you buy one, order new parts now while they still have them in your model. Have since purchased three more over the years, one for my laundry room and one for my office. When the electric power goes out I still have heat!!!
