This produce states it does not need direct venting, does this mean that I have to have a window or door open to operate it?

This does not require venting on the heater itself. It does however require minimum openings in the application that it is being used. This particular heater requires a 2 foot squared opening near the floor and a 2 foot squared opening near the ceiling.

No, I run mine in my garage with no window or door open at all. My garage is 25 x 25 and have had no issues other than the thing heating me out of it if I let it run too long.

The unit does have a low O2 shut off built into it, if there's not enough air the unit will shut off and not start again until there's proper air around.

You will want to be sure to have enough space around the unit for good air flow though so that it can breath.

We do not recommend running this heater without electricity. The manufacturer recommends running the fan for 20 seconds before igniting to purge any fuel build up.

Question

What is the total current draw?

I plan to run this heater with a 400-watt inverter which can deliver (approx.) 3.5 amps @ 115 volts. The 350-CFM blower should not draw more than 2 to 3 amps but the ignition system adds another level of uncertainty.

If this heater cannot be operated via inverter, I will be looking at a convection propane heater like item 173608 that requires no electricity.

Why a Minimum 40lb. Tank?

The specs insist a 40lb. tank. Would not a 20lb. or 30lb. work with just less time until empty?

This Mr. Heater Portable Propane Forced Air Heater, model MH125FAV, is not compatible with a thermostat due to the product having to be manually lit. You would need to go with a larger unit such as our Item# 174339, which would include a built in thermostat.
