The 10,000 BTU ProCom Infrared Heater cannot sit at ground level, and must be wall mounted. It requires a minimum of 2 inches clearance from any combustible materiel underneath. The larger ProCom Infrared Heaters can be set on the floor via a base designed for them. See links below for more information.

Dual fuel means that it can run off either propane or natural gas. Being vent free means that this is a clean burning heater and it can be run inside your house without any venting required.

answer 2
Vent free simply means that you do not need to vent the heater to the outside. Combustion is so clean and complete that the gases can stay inside the house without causing any problems. This does not mean you can put the heater in a very small room. You do need some space for the heater to work properly. I have three vent free heaters and have used them for years without any problems.

answer 3
It means that there is no vent taking any fumes to the outside of where you have it installed. They burn so effeciently that they rarely emit carbon monoxide or fuel vapor. It is a practical safety measure to install a carbon monoxide detector. These can be purchased for very similar cost to a smoke detector, but usually are mounted low toward the floor of your unit, as carbon monoxide and propane/natural gas is heavier tha oxygen.

answer 2
It is small enough to install in a large bathroom. It will put out a lot of heat and as long as you can get a gas line to the place you want it mounted it should be OK. Just be careful not to mount it where flamable items, such as towels, etc. can come in contact with it. The other thing is, I wouldn't use any type of aerosal spray, such as hair spray in the bathroom, as it is extremely flamable. I think you would be better off using an in-wall electrical heater if you have electricity available. Remember, this is a flame heater and as such can ignite other objects or gasses.

answer 2
I have the two plaque wall heater and from my experience the temperature range starts at about 62 degrees and goes up to over 80. The heater will not come on unless you set the thermostat to at least the frist number which is 1. Anything below 1 is just the pilot.

The ProCom Vent free Dual Fuel Radiant heater needs at least a 100 lb propane tank. Per the manufacturer you must check with your local codes, they suggest having it professionally installed. A professional will have everything you need to hook it up. If it is not hooked up correctly, you will void the warranty

Question

Can this product be installed in a camper, as long as the manufacturers fresh air requirements are met? if so, would it be safe?

I have a travel trailer that i use year round. The furnace that came with it from the manufacturer recently went out and cannot be repaired. I have looked for a direct replacement with no luck and have been told that it is obsolete. This heater seems like a good candidate although i dont believe it should be used in an area where you sleep. According to the worksheet from this manufacturer, the amount of airspace in my camper can support the airspace requirements necessary without adding any ventilation or makeup air. I have one concern, Will it be safe for my family if used in this application?
