Great Product...TERRIBLE TECH SUPPORT Review by Peter W
Quality
Price
Value

I've purchased both a Big Buddy Heater and a Mr Heater Blue Flame heater in the past year. Both are excellent products, well-designed and well-made. However, when I had a minor issue with one of the heaters, I left FIVE messages on their "Leave Your Number and We'll Call You Back" option, after waiting on hold for over thirty minutes on other attempts. Those calls were made six weeks ago....I'm still waiting for a call back. Great products, but KEEP YOUR FINGERS CROSSED THAT YOU NEVER NEED TECH SUPPORT!!!!

The Blue flame heater is just as I hoped it would be, perfect amount heat for the area that I want to heat. It works as advertised and the price was about $170.00 less than on Amazon. I really like it.

The unit works great, but it is not something I would operate in a house do to smell. My main complaint is I had to spend a few hours
locating a male/male coupler to connect the MR Heater hose/regulator to the Mr heater propane blue flame heater.

I've had one of these heaters in the past and loved, loved it.

This one, however, has a problem with the ignitor, and I can't seem to get it resolved. It won't light. I've talked with the Mr. Heater people and have had no help with the issue. Hopefully, this will get worked out.

In the meantime, its just a cold lump, sitting in the corner of the room.

Disappointing...

I've no doubt this is a good heater but was NOT told it only works in an elevation of 4,400 feet or less. We are at 8,500 feet and the pilot keeps going out. This should be stated on their description of the heater! Very dissappointed as we now have to return it and colder weather coming in so buyer BEWARE!

I am very pleased with the performance of this unit. I have tried the buddy, big buddy, and other Mr. Heater shop type heaters and have always had good results. I believe this heater is more efficient and cleaner burning than the red flame type heaters. It is also convenient that it works with a 20 pound tank. Mr. Heater products are dependable and cost effective.

Received my heater in three days. It actually arrived the day the temperature dipped. It took a few minutes to set up and get it working. Excellent heater and our home was toasty warm within an hour. I chose this heater because it had a thermostat and blower. If you have a small area to heat this heater will more than provide the warmth needed. Thank You for your prompt delivery. I will be back for future orders.

Bad Pilot Review by Greg Hendrix
Price

Quality

I had one of these heaters last winter and really liked it. But by the end of the season it was useless because of the pilot light. You can not keep it lit. I ended up just throwing it away. This fall I bought another one. I liked it that much. I hoped I had gotten a bad one the previous year. No such luck. The middle of Febuary and it is completely inop. They know they have a problem with the pilot. The manual goes into great detail on cleaning it. It doesn't help. When-If they ever fix this they will have a great product. As it is it's junk.

Excellent! Review by Melissa

I've had it for only a week but it works excellent! I really enjoy the thermostat feature, as well as the fan. Both work excellent! It does an excellent job at heating. This is actually the main heat source that I am using in a 500 sq ft cottage and it heats the entire place very well and it has been -15 or so degrees here a few nights running it on 3-4, never 5. It was in the 20's and I had it on 1-2 and ended up on 1 because it was just too toasty. Prior to this, I was using an older model propane wall mount (unsure of make or model) and it was a 3 brick radiant one and when using it, even on all 3 bricks, I had to use an electric space heater and it was never as warm in here as it is with this one just set on 1-2! If I ever needed a new one I would definitely buy one and most definitely recommend it to anyone considering buying one. Rural King was also very excellent in dealing with. Affortable pricing, well-made products and fast shipping, you can't beat that.

Powerfull and Hot Review by John Zehendner
Quality

Instant heat comes pouring out as soon as the fire is on. I believe it probably ought not be used in an area less than 200sq. feet. Fan feature is very helpfull for distributing heat especially if you have a low ceiling that could possibly get hot enough to catch fire if left on high without the fan.
**This heater could easilly heat a garage.**
Worth the money for sure.

I am so happy with this purchase, it keeps my shed completely warm and shuts down when it reaches a set temperature so I save propane. It is very easy to use and seems extremely safe. I do wish that it could come with all the necessary hardware to hook up the propane tank, at lease give me the option to purchase with the stove, that would save me some time. All in all well worth the money,

I bought this heater for my little cabin 14' x 16' = 224 qft'. It's rated for 600qft'. It has 5 settings and I keep it set on 2 ( very comfortable) I just open two windows a 1/4" for venting. I replaced the inlet elbow fitting because it looked cheep and didn't want any problems, all in all the heater works great. I'm very satisfied with my purchase.

Awsome Heater Review by Mark

Last year i bought the 30,000 BTU NG Vent Free Blue Flame Heater and my doughter had an older 10k btu and hers went out so we "Upgraded" hers to the 20k. I paid 199.00 w/free shipping in July 2012. we paid 250 for the 20k NG heater for my doughter in January, guess it is pound smart and penny wise to buy these things in the middle of summer. Because god knows when you need one they will rip you right up the ass to get one.
At any rate, ours has been our Primary source of heat in our 1500 sq ft home for the past 2 years, it got down to 20 below here in upstate ny this year and the thermostat on the 30k heater was NEVER turned up past 3 and it kept this house at 76 degrees when it was 20 below outside and the thermostat goes up to 9...I would NEVER test it out to see how hot 9 is after 3 at 20 below was 76 I'd imagine @9 it would be like 110 degrees, just a guess tho. I would recomend EVERYONE to get one of these. Our power goes out 6-12 times a year and when Huricane sandy ripped through here and knocked out our power for 18 hours...we had HEAT :-) and lots of it. My doughters kept her house at 74 with the thermostat at 6 but hers is a 20k and mine is 30k. I realy didnt need the 30k heater but for 199.00 on sale i figured why not?..our kerosene heater was 30k so thats what i bought...do i regret it?..sometimes when its 40 or 50 out and the little 30k btu sucker is set at .5 and the house is at 78 degress thats when i regret it but sure does heat up the place...and my gas bill was only 65.00 every month all winter long. Kerosene here is 5.15 a galloon and them heaters run 2.5 gallons every 12 hours...you do the math...BUY ONE OF THESE NOW B-4 Next Winter, you won't regret it.

Heater was easy to install. Had to fumble with the hanging bracket to hit the studs in my wall.
the bracket and fittings on the regulator could be a little more rugged.
I will connect propane to it tomorrow. Looks like all will be a go

Generally the heater seems to be a good value and as well constructed and any other I have checked out.
