Ventless propane heater

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Game 6 of Caps and Lightning was fun to watch, even though the lightning got shut out.  Ove was a beast, really fun to watch him play like that.   Good for the Caps, I think they can nuetralize the speed of Vegas, they have some hard hitters on the team.  Hopefully Ove can kiss the cup.
    • Vegas vs Caps, we all saw that coming. 
    • Well this has been a tough season so far with this odd weather. Late winter jump into 80+ degrees.  It will be interesting to see what these next 4-5 days of 80's to 90's do to them?   Did find a few Morel's and some nice small tender Pheasant  backs last time out.
    • For the 2018 Minnesota Fishing Opener we went up to Lake Vermilion in search of Walleyes. The morning started off slow for us so we changed up the tactics and it resulted in a livewell full of walleyes, a few Slot fish and a new Personal Best!     
    • Ok, if you don't post back in a few days we know!
    • I shoot 2 steel all season long in an improved cyclinder choke . Satisfied with that. Have a buddy who shoots Black Cloud 3's with impressive results.
    • I stopped at Lowes yesterday and got restocked at 9.88 per 18.6 lb double pack. No limit indicated.  
    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
