Question

Can I attach the blower later after the stove is setup?

I'm not sure I will need the blower, and to save costs would like to wait to see if I need the blower. I may not even need it. After the stove has been installed, is it hard to add the blower later?

Yes, you can attach the blower anytime. The installation is pretty simple, unscrew a couple of screws from the plate on the back of the stove, remove the plate, put the blower in and attach with screws.

Yes...the blower install was super easy and can be done anytime. Just make sure you disconnect the gas supply line. The blower really distributes the heat; you may really want to consider it. I am glad I spent the extra $100.00 as the blower even helps to heat our upper floors too.

NO. It is vent free. However if you run it for a long time in a tightly sealed home you risk raising the humidity level -- so crack a window.

Question

Why do I need a 100# propane tank?

I didn't know I needed a 100#LP tank until I picked up the stove. It was not mentioned (at least not anywhere prominent) in the product description. Can I use a 40#LP (which is what I have)?

answer 3
I'm no expert but, maybe this will help. The manual for this stove states that there must be an external gas regulator between the gas supply and the stove to reduce the gas pressure. Quote. "You must reduce incoming gas pressure to between 11 and 14 inches of water for propane and between 5 and 10.5 inches of water column for natural gas. If you do not reduce incoming gas pressure heater regulator damage could occur." I also have a wall mounted propane heater that I operate from a 20# propane bottle. You can purchase a hose that connects to a propane bottle and has an attached regulator at any good hardware store that carries propane/gas hoses (like the kind that connects to the back of a propane/gas kitchen stove).

I live at 10,000 ft and at the lowest setting it is keeping my 1400 sq ft modular around 63 degrees. I do recommend a carbon monoxide monitor in bedrooms. I have not had any issues with mine but I know that I have some air leaks. I really do like this stove and would recommend it to anyone.

I have not experienced odor problems from the units I have installed. But after awhile, you will notice some light soot build up on painted surfaces and such. Remember, these units are rated for approx. 99% efficiency, but they are still venting indoors. Adequate ventilation and a carbon monoxide detector are a must in my opinion. And if you have a very airtight space, I would not use this type of stove without a fresh air source.

Not very, there are three separated plates above the flames which warm the air between them so the top is not so hot you can't touch it. You will not be able to cook on it at all. We leave stuff on the top of ours. Only the sections directly in front of and above the flames get really hot.
