    I am looking for a garage propane heater. Can the Empire heater be connected to a 20lb or larger propane tank?
    1 Answers
    A 20 lb. tank would not last very log before causing outage issues with the heater. A 30,000 Btu heater uses approximately just under 1.5 pounds of liquid propane per hour and the pressure produced by any propane tank will decrease in colder weather and as the level of propane is depleted. Propane begins to boil at temperatures below freezing, but only absorbs heat through the "wetted surface area" or the inner tank surface bathed in liquid propane. Subsequently, this heater may only work for a few hours or half an hour, depending on outdoor temperatures. It is recommended to use at least a 50 pound tank to avoid this issue.

    Are these cool to touch? I am concerned about grandchildren. Are all propane wall heaters cool to touch? Are your blue flame heaters behind glass?
    1 Answers
    Ventless propane or natural gas wall heaters will not be cool to the touch and most all have an open flame. There are several ventless fireplaces that will have a solid pane of tempered or ceramic glass over the front to shield the flame, but these models will be higher in price as they feature more decorative elements. Additionally, any hearth system we offer that produces a significant amount of heat will be hot to the touch, so purchasing a system with a pane of glass that encloses the combustion chamber will only prevent accidental contact with an open flame. Hearth manufacturers simply advise to keep smaller children away from the heater. For whichever hearth system you end up purchasing, we do offer a number of products like the Minuteman SCR-12 3F Fireplace Screen Child Guard Stove - Black to lessen any concerns.

    I just received this heater and my propane line comes through the wall of my house. Do I have to put a inline regulator in the line before the heater and what materials do I need to pipe this heater?
    1 Answers
    Your LP supplier will typically provide this information as only someone legally qualified to adhere to both local and national gas code should perform the installation. If an existing pipe stub and shutoff valve are already in place, pressure testing will need to be performed with the heater isolated from the gas supply as pressures in excess of 1/2 psig will cause a potentially hazardous situation. A 1/8 inch (3mm) N.P.T. plugged tapping should be available immediately upstream of the gas valve to check pressure and the minimum inlet pressure of 11" w.c. will need to be confirmed (maximum 13" w.c.).

    February 25, 2016
    I am looking for a wall propane heater and the one I am interested in is the Empire SR30 Infrared Vent Free. However, in my search on these wall propane heaters, I have seen statements about not suitable above 4500 ft. I am at 5000 feet. What is the issue and what propane heater is good for above 5000 ft? I also need one like this that does not need electricity. Can you help advise me?
    1 Answers
    Because of your elevation, you may experience pilot outages from any vent free appliances. Vent free units can suffer from oxygen depletion at any altitude greater than 4,500 feet. However, if the unit is being operated in a large space with plenty of air volume, the issue is unlikely to occur. Like most all of the ventless heaters offered, this will operate without power. An optional blower will not function as this will require 120v, but the same can be said for all hearth systems.

    1 Answers
    Manually operating this model involves selecting how many plaques from 1-5 you prefer to have operating via the manual control knob and this will range from 7-30,000 Btu. This same model is available with a Hydraulic Thermostat. It features a HI/LO knob that will turn the unit off depending on the control knob position and this ranges from 55 degrees on LO to 90 degrees on HI.

    These manual control heaters are by far a much better heater than the ones with a thermostat. I purchased one for my 2000 square foot house and we leave 1 burner on all the time unless the cold weather merits other wise. It has greatly reduced the amount of times the central heat comes on all the while keeping the house at a comfortable level. I would definitely recommend this product.

    1 Answers
    Is your existing heater fueled by propane? If so, there is not a conversion kit manufactured to switch it to natural gas. The manufacturer does not produce such a kit, due to the dangers that can arise if the heater is incorrectly converted.

    I work for a small print shop. We use chemicals to clean presses and other solvents. The heater that we are looking to replace is gas with an outside vent. Would this be suitable for our needs?
    1 Answers
    Due to the possible dangers, it is not recommended to use a heater that uses combustion air from a room where any flammable or potentially hazardous cleaning agents are used. Because air from the room will be drawn into the heater, any hazardous byproducts in the air could be burned and released back into the room. A direct vent heater should be used instead.

    from Boise, ID asked:
    April 27, 2012
    I've got a cold wood-shop/garage (about 900-1000 sq. ft.) to heat in Boise, Idaho. There is insulation on the roof, and most walls. It's built into a hillside, so one side has a 4 foot tall bare concrete retaining wall. The opposite wall is a common wall with the house. The garage doors are insulated. The fourth wall has some single paned glass, and a lot of gaps to the outside that have been tough to fill. There is easy access to a natural gas line here. Do you have any recommendations for a heater for this space? I like the idea of a ventless installation. Is this safe for use in a garage/woodshop? The height is 10-11 feet if that matters.
    1 Answers
    Generally, there is not an issue with installing a vent free heater in a workshop, just as long as there is not an overabundance of flammable chemicals/fluids in the immediate area. Given your climate and the description of the workshop, this heater would only heat about 3/4 of the space effectively. It would also need to be a centralized location. Due to limitations on the amount of available room air, vent free heaters are 30k BTUs at their largest. In order to guarantee effective heating of the entire space, you would need to utilize a larger, direct vent unit. The only drawback is that this type of heater must have space available on an outside wall for installation. I will be happy to assist you with questions you may have.

    None Better
    If this company's quality control stays on target then you will not find a better heating, longer lasting wall heater. I've heated my whole house "1700 sq. ft." exclusively. Built in the 70's as an all electric home, in weather to 10 below with a wind chill even lower. I use no other heat source, just one thermostat controlled 30,000 btu wall unit, placed in the middle of the house on an outside wall. I've done this for over 20 year, only having to replace the unit once in that time. This unit will last well past it's warranty time. I'm so confident in these units that I have bought a spare that I keep in storage. For as I've said: it is my only heat. Buy one, you'll not regret it...

    Next day shipment was amazing
    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! Installation: 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.
    Pros1. 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...)
    ConsThis 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")

    Finally warm
    I am in a two bedroom 1320 sq ft SW Va . The heater is downstairs and even on lowest setting the upstairs is warm. Got it for emergencies but found it is awesome for everyday use. Heat pump just doesn't do it. I recommend Empire because it is made in the USA. Before bringing a gas heater into my home I searched for what I believe to be the safest I chose Empire. As you can see my Chihuahua enjoys the heater as well. I ordered this heater on a Sunday evening and it was at my door he next evening. I purchased from this seller due to price and shipping. Wow awesome choice!
