Yes, you will need a regulator at the tank that can handle the maximum Btu Output of the heater. In addition to that, you also need enough 1/2" Flexible Copper Gas piping to run from the tank valve to the heater. In the line passes through a brick, cinder block or concrete wall, the gas line MUST be sleeved with either Black Iron Pipe or Rigid PVC Pipe. You'll also need assorted flair nuts and connectors.. As well as , a Inline Gas Shut Off Valve within a minimum of 2' from the heater. You will alos need a pipe bender for flexible copper pipe.

Having a friend who has a lot of knowledge and tools for installing gas appliances (running lines, making leak-less connections, etc) really helps.

I have a GloWarm propane/lp gas space heater. Can I use bottled propane tanks?


no you can't, and aren't you worried about carbon monoxide poisoning? Where does the burnt air go?

GloWarm Heaters - ventfree infrared heaters
GloWarm Infrared heaters are residential gas space heaters that are ventfree,
so no venting is required

GloWarm Plaque Infrared heaters direct heat from radiant plaques that
"warm like the sun."

Infrared heaters heat objects in the room before the air,
making them ideal for un-insulated rooms in your home.

All propane heaters require a 100 lb. tank or larger!

Are the propane tanks fitted with a pressure regulator?

The propane gas regulator is one of the most important parts of a propane gas system (or a compressed natural gas system as well).

The purpose of the regulator is to control the flow of gas and lower the pressure from the tank to the appliance(s) in the gas system.

The regulator not only acts as a control regarding the flow and distribution of propane (or CNS) but also as a safety barrier between the high pressure of the tank and the end use appliance(s).

Without it, you can cause serious damage to the appliance's gas valve and create a disaster- fire or explosion.

Sure is. You simply need to purchase a to 3/4" to 1/2" Male to female reducer. You didn't mention if your current gas piping is flexible copper, rigid black iron pipe or flexible stainless steel. In any event, get the one that matches your current gas piping. If all of your other gas appliances require an individual regulator, then you'll need one for the tankless water heater. If in doubt, contact your propane provider.

Hope this helped answer your question and provide a solution.

Thinking about buying a pro com -ML250TPA-BB from tractor supply for my garage can i use a 40 lbs. propane tank for gas supply?


I think what you have is a 100 Lb tank, that holds 40 gallons of propane. If that's,the case, it would be acceptable. IF the tank is placed Outside the garage 3 ft from any doors or windows: The gas line is a minimum of 1/2" diameter; the heater is permanently mounted to the wall (at least 18" off the floor); there is an accessible, inline gas shutoff valve within 2 feet of the heater and you have a properly sized tank regulator. You do all that, and you'll reach the minimum code standards that are required.

Hope this helps you make the right decision.

It sounds to me like you need to increse gas pressure. Most propane fired units need at least a 11 inch water column of pressure for proper operation. This relates closely 7.5 ounces. I would have regulator checked out by qualified service techs. Thank you

Procom ML300TBA Heater: Liquid or Gas


Propane exist in a liquid state when it is under pressure in a propane cylinder. When the valve on the propane cylinder the pressure on the liquid is reduced and the propane reverts back to gas state.

Also, regarding the tank you need....
the owners manual probably states what size you will need but, with most heater like the one you have it will require a 100 lb tank (approximately 25 gallons). You will also need an inline regulator set to 11" to 14" of water column between the tank and the heater.

Can't get propane heater to lite


Not enough information to solve the problem correctly but I'll take a guess at it......

This heater requires a 100lb propane tank (approx. 25gal) with 1/2" or larger piping to deliver the correct volume of gas to the heater. If you are using a smaller tank (like a 10gal) or the piping is not the correct size you will not get enough gas to the heater to light the pilot. Also you should have a regulator set at 11" to 14" of water column installed between the tank and the heater. If the tank is connected directly to the heater you may have damaged the internal regulator in the heater.

Wiring thermostat


a standard propane regulator should work. check on the required pressure for the unit and get a compatible regulator. try grainger supply. thermostat connections are usually 24 volt two wire, opens on temperature rise. connections on the burner relay are indicated TH-TH.
