Initial impressions pretty favorable
I got the heater (now have 2) as part of an emergency heat system should our power go out in a winter storm. Not too many here in NC, so this is the
'size' solution I came up with instead of installing gas logs, fireplace, wood stove, whole house generators, etc.

I like it because it doesn't take any permanent space and, with two, they are easy to move into whatever positions will work the best. Two in a large room; one in a room, with another on standby for when the first runs out of juice, one in each of two rooms .... whatever.

I had no problem getting the heaters up and running. It was my first time ever using the 1 pound LB cylinders so it took a little longer for the gas to get flowing than I was prepared for initially, and though something might be wrong. But once it got going, now works great. I wish all reviews would allow future updates - it's hard to rely on feedback that is just a week or so old. So far so good, but how will it be by next winter? Don't know about that.

I have tested them both to make sure they worked, and I experimented with one on a cold night & turned the heat off.
Outside: 40 degrees. Inside - fell to about 60. W heater on brought it up to about 68 or so w/i 30 minutes
Room size: 24 x 13. approx.
Pleased with the heating.
One problem - I calculated the vent space for opening a window as per the instructions - 9 sq. in. (36 in window cracked 1/4". Actually opened two - another across room at 1/8" x 36. Got the Carbon Monoxide headache in about 30 minutes. I shut off heater. Aired out the room. An hour or so later, w headache much better, I fired it up again, this time with a 5" crack across a 30" window for 150 sq in. and still an inch or so across room.
That worked fine & still heated room.
I wonder how well it would work in 20 degrees, strong wind .... but I think I can play with where I open windows. Would update after that experience if I could.

Toast on Nov 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You need to buy a connector hose for 20 lb propane tanks, which we do not sell. You will need to call Mr. Heater directly for the optional connector hose. Their phone number is 800-251-0001.
