Mr. Heater VF30KBLUELP

The Mr. Heater Propane Vent-Free Heater is capable of safely heating a 600 square foot room with 30,000 BTU's of power and 5 heat control settings. If you do not want your heater running on full force, you can just turn the heat down to whatever setting you want and use the blower fan to circulate the warmth around the entire room.

Review Details

With the Mr. Heater Propane Heater, there is never the fear of losing your heat source when a power outage occurs. The only thing you are going to need is a couple of AA batteries for the spark igniter, so make sure you always have those handy. If the heater is running and senses that there is low oxygen, the low oxygen sensor will shut down the heater so you do not have to worry about harmful emissions being dispersed throughout your home.

What We Liked

  • Top Mounted Comfort Control
    Unlike other heaters, the comfort controls are on the top of the heater instead of the bottom. Settings on the bottom of heaters can be a hassle, these top settings just makes the heater much easier to use.
  • Adjustable Settings
    Heaters that only have one setting tend to make the room very hot and you have to keep shutting the heater off and turning it back on to keep a comfortable temperature. This heater has 5 settings that make it easier to control the temperature in the room.
  • No Venting
    Venting makes for a messy installation and since this heater does not require venting or a chimney, installation is quick.
  • Wall Mountable
    Heaters that can be wall mounted have a huge advantage over those that cannot be mounted. Mounted heaters are out of the way and discrete, heaters that aren't wall mounted get in the way and are easily knocked over.
  • Operates Without Power
    Heaters that need to be plugged in are useless during power outages. This only needs 2 AA batteries to ignite the spark and then it runs off of propane and stays running during an outage.

What We Didn't Like

  • Cannot Be Converted
    Some heaters allow you to use them with either gas or electricity, this one does not have that option, but it is still environmentally safe and keeps you warm without electricity.
  • No Overheat Protection
    Some people prefer heaters that have an automatic shut-off for overheating. Even though this one does not have that option, it still has temperature control, which reduces the risk of overheating.

Conclusion

The Mr. Heater Propane Vent-Free Heater is ideal for any 600 square foot room. Not only does it heat up a room and circulate the heat around with the blower fan, it is also environmentally safe and can run without electricity. The features of the Mr. Heater Propane Heater makes it rise above other heaters in this category and worth the price.
