there is one way to make this work. I feel certain that the existing system is a low pressure system. The gas company could install a higher pressure meter, and with the proper regulators this would work. We had the same situation in an airport hanger, all the heaters firing at the same time would not allow any of them to operate correctly. It turned out that the gas company had installed a low pressure regulator at the meter. After this was changed to a high pressure, and the individual heater regulators replaced, it worked perfectly

Yes it is a good regulator it to reduces the chance of
blockage by freezing rain or sleet when properly installed with the
vent pointing down.
Proper installation requires the vent
to be pointed down in a vertical position. Additional protection
may be required if road splatter is a problem.

Am told that a cozymizer gas fire installed in conventional grate now requires additional ventilation. Only id marks on plate are "18N and input 9.6 kw. Can you advise?


I just happened to be looking at this site. I have just changed a Cozymiser for a Wonderfire (remote control). For fires over 7kw, you will need a vent in the room - which will cause a through draft. Our Cozymiser was 9.2 kw and without a vent, it was against regulations to use. These regulations came in after we acquired it in 1989! Our new 7kw fire is great and a vent is not needed.

This heater is designed to work with LP gas. You will need a regulator from the tank to the heater set at 11"wc .that's standard for any LP gas system. Your existing piping system should have a regulator already outside of your house before the gas inters your home .If it does not then you will have to install one. The regulator can be inside but you will have to run a vent line in copper from the regulators vent to the outside of your house.

Hope this helps ......

Installing a R232-HBF REGULATOR -What's up with this screen/vent deal? Will mosture affect it?- thank's


Most all regulators require a differential in pressure to work. To get a differential, you need to have gas pressure on one side of the diaphragm and atmosphere pressure on the other side. If you have high moisture, you can either effect the differential pressure, cause a freezing condition in the regulator in cooler weather or subject the regulator to premature failure due to corrosion. You did not explain if this is going to be used in a high moisture area or not. Can the regulator be vented to a low moisture area?
