Answer: 
yes it will, but as I have stated before, to get your moneys worth don't do an exchange of the tank. They only fill the tank with around 16 lbs of gas. Take it to a place that fills them and you will get your 20lbs worth for around the same price.

Answer: 
The heater has a fan along with a high limit switch for safety reasons, so it needs some type of electrical source to run it, which means it will have a continuous spark and no need for manual ignition.

Answer: 
No manual ignition. You can run it with a small generator if necessary. Needs AC to run the combustion blower fan as well as the igniter system.
Could possibly run it from an inverter / DC system. I don't know the watt requirement but it cant be much. Maybe 100 to 150 watts? Contact the manufacturer or maybe there are specs on HDs website.

Answer: 
Propane torpedo heaters need constant electric to run. The ignition is constant and you will hear a clicking sound at all times it is on. This unit does however not use many amps, so you can use a small portable generator which can be picked up for around $100.

Needs some fresh air supply. Definitely needs venting, and also doesn't have an oxygen depletion sensor. Burns in yellow-ish which indicates it puts out some CO as well. I can be used indoors in a leaky garage for sure, otherwise outside only.

Hi Fred.
I do not know why they just list square footage unless it is for standard 8 foot ceilings. To get square feet simply multiply length times the width. To calculate cubic feet you have to multiply the length times the width times the height.

www.calculator.net This should lead you to the calculator to figure it out for you. If that does not work (which it should) www.calculator.net/btucalculator.html
It is hard to figure it out when you have the heater in a garage or building that has an open ceiling but this should help you out
Hope this helps you Fred

It lights the first time every time, burns well, and heats up my 2 car uninsulated garage from 40 degrees up to 60-65 degrees in about 20 minutes. I'm very happy with it. I've gone through one 20lb propane tank with it already and you can't tell it's ever been used. Only negative thing I could say is that there is no on/off switch for the fan or spark. You physically have to plug it in and unplug it to turn it on/off. I'm pretty sure that is a safety feature though so I guess I shouldn't complain about it...haha. I would definitely buy it again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I purchased this unit to replace a 150,000 BTU Kero heater that I had in service for many years. ... I purchased this unit to replace a 150,000 BTU Kero heater that I had in service for many years. I use the heaters to offset the chill in in 24X48 insulated shop. The 150K unit would heat the shop to a toastee temp in no time. This unit raised the interior temp 10 degrees in an hour. The pros are it is light, no smells and easy to use. The cons are: underpowered for this size of shop and the fan needs an on off switch. It would probably do well for a regular 2 car garage - however not for a larger space. I will probably research a larger unit for purchase and use this one in the garage.

I have been using in my 24x30 garage and it works great. The heat adjustmet allows me to crank it up when I need to warm the space up and then I can turn it down to maintain temp' It is noisey from the fan but that is the nature of these heaters. Once the space is warm I turn off periodicly anyway because it still puts off more heat than i need on warmer days'

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very limited functionality This heater would be very nice, but it must be manually lit every time (even though it has a piezo lighter that is from an external power supply!), and the only way to shut the fan off is by unplugging it, how crazy is that? Sorry, but this would be a great little heater, but its hobbled by a lack of controls.
