Our direct fired heaters are very user-friendly.
When using a direct fired heater, you have several different options for fueling. One of those options is propane.
Using a Propane-Powered Direct Fired Heater
Watch the video below to learn how to get set up with your propane powered heater.
Transcript: So these units are very simple. Make sure your gas valve is on, which is right here. After you hook up your lines, you also have to make sure that this valve right here is in the correct position. This is your propane or natural gas, depending on the position; the position it’s in now is set up for propane, which is in locked position. It will not go anywhere. If it’s parallel with the pipe, it’s running in natural gas position.
So simple operations that these run on, they always run on a thermostat. So make sure your thermostat’s set to the temperature you want to set, and just very simple— start or stop. So you’ll start the unit, you’ll hear it click, and it will fire.
As I lower the thermostat, a white light comes on, and the unit’s in idle until it wants to fall again, so I can fire it back up, set it, click, it fires again. Very simple unit.
The biggest issue we have with this unit is most of the time, is power. Dince they run on a higher amperage, we have to make sure we use 10 gauge wire on these or you’ll get an overload on the motors.
