Staff Answer
This heater must be operated with adequate ventilation. Two openings directly to the outdoors must
be provided, one low and one high, preferably on opposite sides of the area to be heated. This appliance is intended to be used primarily for the heating of buildings under construction, alteration or repair. Do not use this heater in a space where gasoline or other liquids having flammable vapors are stored or used.

Not for long periods without some ventilation. Not where conbustibles are present. We use these heaters (3) in our 10,000 sf warehouse with 20' ceilings. Of course they don't heat the warehouse, just the area close to you. Read the manufacturers safety instructions included with the heaters.

Question

How loud is this heater when it's running?

I purchased a forced air style heater from this site last year (Model# MH60FAV) and have since moved to a smaller garage where it makes too much noise to run comfortably in my work area. I'm just wondering how this heater will compare in terms of noise level when it is running??

The Mr. Heater Radiant Heater is not decibel or noise rated but because of the type of heater it is, when it is in operation it is very quiet. It will give off just a slight hissing type of crackle and since it does not use a fan there is no additional noise generated.

Thank you for the inquiry. The MH35LP,a radiant style heater, is quieter due to it not needing a fan to run. If you are interested in a heater like your forced air heater, we manufacture a MH60QFAV that has our new quiet burner technology.

The heater is very quiet when running. It makes a weird little noise when you first turn it on, but after it heats up it is very quiet.

answer 2
Mine is still pretty new and there is a definite odor. But I think a lot of that is from coatings flashing off and I expect that to get less noticeable as the heater breaks in. Maybe someone with a few days on their heater could chime in.

I also use a Kerosun heater and I know what you mean. But, even while it's breaking in, the MH35LP is superior in the odor department. It is louder than the kerosene heater, but not objectionable. It's also a lot simpler to deal with than kerosene. I would definitely prefer it in a party situation.

This heater is only designed to stand in the upright position on the ground. It is designed as a portable heater and not designed to hang from the ceiling. Listed below is a 40k BTU heater that can be hung from the ceiling.

I'm not a fire marshal, but I definitely wouldn't do that.

The back panels are designed to direct heat, not contain it. This much heat five feet above a workbench would be too much. I use the heater in my workshop, stand it up as designed and put a cheap box fan behind it on low. It would warm up an area around a work bench pretty fast - at least it does for me.

thank you for your inquiry. This heater burns 99% of the propane. The 1% is the small amount of exhaust that comes from the heater. The heater does require a small amount of ventilation.

Question

Would it be acceptable to hang this unit on wall hooks by the handle while in use? Say back wall of the garage to keep from taking up floor space.

I was thinking of mounting this to the rear wall of my garage to allow the heat to radiate out towards the door. As long as the combustibles are far enough away from front and sides per the manual, and since the rear clearance is 0", would that be acceptable?

Use of this heater in a draft/windy area may decrease its efficiency. If possible, operate the unit in a draft free area or turn the face of the heater away from the draft. It may stay lit, but its efficiency would be decreased.
