    Is this a hanging unit heater, a wall mounted heater or a portable heater? Is it ventless or supposed to be vented? Name the make and model so we can help you more specifically. Douglas

Make sure it has 24 cubic feet of combustion air around it and use type b double wall for the collar diameter and pipe to factory specifications and local codes, flue must always be sloping up.

I have a wall mount vent free heater and a 10 gal propane tank how do hook it up so it will work


First off, Dave, the tank cannot be inside the house, motor home, camper, garage, etc. By the way, I believe your 10 gallon tank, is what's called a 40LB cylinder. Anyway, 10 gallons is not going to last very long, if the heater you plan to install is 20,000 Btu output or higher. If it's going in a bedroom, the maximum Btu output can not exceed 10,000 Btu's.

To install one, you'll need 1/2" flexible copper gas piping. An in-line LP Gas regulator, that has the capacity to carry whatever the maximum Btu output of you heater is. In addition, you will need a 1/2 NPT to 3/8" Flare nipple to go into the back of the heater. Assorted Flare Nuts in assorted sizes for the gas line connections.

Tools needed: Flaring tool, 2 adjustable wrenches, Phillips Head Screw Driver & Leak Detector Solution. To make sure it's done correctly, a Mechanical/Plumbing Permit from you city or county's Building Inspection Department. And last, but not least, a friend that has a lot of knowledge in the installation of Vent-free Supplemental Gas Heating Appliances.

If installed properly, these appliances are very safe. If installed improperly, they can be very dangerous.

How to convert kozy world propain heater to gas


Sorry, it can not be converted. At least not safely. It's a Vent-free Gas Supplemental Heating Appliance, that is manufactured for one specific gas type, either Natural Gas or LP Gas. There are NO conversion kits for these units or any Vent-free gas appliances for that matter.

Is it safe to run a Sterling gas garage heater all night with garage doors down? It is on a thermostat and is vented to the outside.


If it's operating properly, is T-Stat controlled and is properly vented to the outside, it should be safe to operate all night. I suggest that you set the Wall Thermostat no higher than 50 degrees, though.

Too much gas pressure. Are you sure that this is a LP heater and not a Natural gas heater? Is the regulator you have rated under 1/2 pound pressure? Try to throttle down the shutoff on the tank to see if pilot gets better. If so, you have a pressure issue. Gas you adjust the pilot gas valve?

Can I convert and Vanguard VP11A LP gas heater to NG


That heater was not designed to be safely converted to Natural Gas. Even if you could convert it, it would cost more to do that than to replace the heater.

Is a kerosene heater good for working in my garage during the cold winter? Is it safe to breath?


Is it safe? That depends on what you are working on. Having a fire/heat source on the floor is a possibly of an explosion if you have gasoline fuel vapors.

For the most part it is safe, you will smell when you leave the garage, but as long as it is not a real air-tight garage you would be ok.

I run a propane heater in my garage during the winter to get away for a bit. I also have a well ventilated area and don't work on gasoline related items during the winter with that on.
