Ventless propane heater

6 posts in this topic

I have a ventless propane heater with low, 1,2,3 and even on low it is to hot in my garage when everything warms up. Is there anyway to hook up a thermostat to it to make it go to pilot to keep it a constant temp?

There's a plug in thermostat made for,kerosene,propane,torpedo heaters.I've used them on other types of heaters,It plugs into a outlet and controls elec.supply,when set temp is reached it shuts down elec. which in turn shuts down heater.There about 60 bucks.

Thats if you dont have a thermo connection on ventless.They work great.

There is no electricity going to the unit? How does this unit control electrical supply and shut?

Does it have a thermostat connection on the unit? If not your probably out of luck,You'll have to then control heat by off & On

Sounds like you have a modulating valve on that unit. Its made to set at a "comfort level". Wall thermostats dont work on that type of valve. However, there should be a thin copper tube that that ties into the valve. On the end of the copper line is a bulb. That kind of works as the thermostat. You can move that around a bit to sense temperatures in different areas. Try putting it near where there is more heat when running. It will turn the unit down sooner and the room will stay cooler. The copper tube may be coiled up. un-coil it but make sure you dont kink or damage it.

It doesn't look like it has a thermostat connection on it, so I guess I am out of luck. Thanks for the help.

    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
    • Fletch's hands are totally tied by his own doing, keep in mind our 1st round pick this year was 15 games of Hanzal...definitley not worth it. Fletch needs to get off his duff and pull the trigger on a Scandella trade real soon for a decent Forward and not pass up an OK opportunity by "hoping" for the homerun and missing out on a good opportunity.  IMO our only hope is that other teams are "watered down" more than we are and that our vets can hang in there one more year.
    • Wondermous!!  Anytime, fivebucks! Years of workin' on that stuff does count for something!!!  I wish ya WOULDA bet me!!     Glad ya got 'er done!!!
