Ventless Ice House Heaters

Can anyone tell me why manufactors recquire 100 lb propane tanks for these heaters? Is it a safety reason or a functioning reason? Won't a 20 lb tank work?

Thanks

don't know wghat size heater you are talking about---I had a 30K heater and I had a lot of trouble keeping it going on a 20lb cylinder. I talked it over with the propane guy and he said that any heater that size needed a 100lb tank, or nearly that much "gas producing" capacity. When I changed to a 20K heater, it ran properly off the 20K tanks.

Hope this helps.

it has to do with how fast the lp can boil off and make propane gas the smaller the container the lower/slower it can boil off and make gas thats why in the summer time you get frost on 1lb bottles
