Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need electricity to operate my LPC Heater?
No, electricity is not needed to operate the LPC Heater.
Can I hook up a thermostat to my LPC Heater?
No, external thermostats cannot be used to operate the LPC heater.
Where can I find my model number?
The model number is found on the front of the base. It is also located on the outside of the heater’s carton by the UPC.
How long is my warranty?
All of our propane and natural gas heater units come with a limited one-year warranty.
Where can I find my serial number?
The serial number is found on the front of the base.
Can I use a longer hose?
We do not recommend switching the hose that came with the LPC Heater with a longer hose.
The heater runs for about 15 minutes then shuts off.
The tank may be low on fuel, too small for the heater.
I have a full tank, but the colder it gets, the less heat I am receiving.
In general, liquid propane is always trying to become a gas and escape the tank. (It boils at –44 degrees F, unless it is under pressure). When the air surrounding the tank is cold, the liquid propane is less willing to become a gas, thus lowering the pressure. Basically, a full tank in 70 degrees F will exert a lot more pressure than a full tank in 30 degrees F. Ambient temperature outside the tank determines the pressure of the propane, as long as you have some liquid inside the tank and the liquid does not exceed 80% of the tank (which explains why you never receive a full tank of liquid propane).
How can I convert gallons to cubic feet?
To convert gallons to cubic feet, simply multiply it by 36.28 (60°F at sea level). This factor may vary depending on altitude, temperature and meter type.
How much pressure will I receive from my propane tank on a cold day?
Vapor pressure (PSI) is determined by the ambient temperature. Please see our Propane Vapor Pressure Chart:
(Propane boils at –44 degrees F)
