PROCOM Blue Flame Wall Heater - 20,000 BTU Output, 700 Sq. Ft. Heating Capacity, Model# MD200TBA
I put in this heater last winter in a two car garage. This little heater warms up that 520 sqft pretty good. Installation was pretty straight forward which is a plus because the instructions weren't exactly clear or they were just downright wrong.
I'd definitely recommend this heater to anyone. It puts off good heat, shuts off the way it's supposed to when the room gets up to temp. I haven't tried the fan yet but I don't think I'll need to since the heater warms up the room just fine. And that's okay with me because that means I won't have to up my electric bill any more than I have to this winter.
My only complaint is about the set of instructions the heater came with. I was really hoping that they were going to be more detailed or a little more clear but that didn't stop me from installing this heater correctly.

I've had this heater in a small one car garage and currently in my 2 1//2 car garage. Can keep it 70 + degrees. Seems like it takes a little longer to light pilot light when changing thanks.

Procom Wall Heater review
Ordered this product and was amazed how easy it was to install the mounting bracket and hang the heater on the wall. Fired right up and we used it several times at our camp to warm up the bedroom. Have used several of these same type heaters before but this was by far the easiest to mount. A+++

Perfect for Camp
I bought this for my Dad last Christmas and we installed it in our camp (16'x14'). It works great. It is easy to set up with little plumbing knowledge. We have it hooked up to propane. Originally we had it hooked upto a 20lb tank buck it would freeze up in cold weather so we upgraded to a 100lb tank and it works awesome.

Great price and very easy to install, had it working in no time. Have it in a 16x20 work shop and it keep it nice and toasty all winter long. Just a great heater for the money

PROCOM wall heater
We use this heater in our 2000 square foot home to heat the back of our house. I love the look of the flame. We chose not to purchase the blower until we decided if we needed it. It turns out that the heater heats so well that we don't need the blower. This heater (along with another one in the other end of the house) are what we use to heat our house. We have a furnace, but only use it about twice a year. These heaters heat our entire house for pennies a day!

The MD200TBA is a good heater
The MD200TBA is a good heater. It arrived prompty and undamaged. I ordered the Feet and the Electric Blower accessories. I hooked it up to my natural gas line. It functioned very well in a power failure. This is the second ProCom Vent Free Heater that I have installed. The first is a MD300TBA that ran extremely well all last year. I put this heater in a room, 35' x 35' x 11' high, that I built as an add-on to my home and had installed electric baseboard heat. I added this heater to reduce the electric consumption. This is the first season of use and so far it has performed flawlessly, as expected, even through a long power failure. I purchased another MD200TBA to place in my basement and I plan to hook it to my Natural Gas line.
The heater is very stable with the feet installed. The fan is not necessary, but does help to dispearse the heat... so if the fan accessory places too much of an unduen burden to your wallet, you need not buy it, and the heater will work just fine without it. In fact, the MD200TBA that I am installing in my basement will only have the feet acessory and not the fan. I needed the feet, because I was not wall mounting it. There was a very slight odor until the "newness" burned off. Now, there is virtually no smell. Now this room is heated without the need for electricity. So far the humidity in my home is excellent, 50%-59%; so I am not experiencing excess water vapor as a result of the two vent free heaters operating. In the off season, I shut off the gas supply and adequately cover the heater(s) so that dust will not accumulate in or on them while they are "OFF-Season". I wish that "custom" covers were made available for these heaters... Maybe in the future they will be available. The built-in thermostat works as well as can be expected; I experience no drastic swings in heat from either of my heaters. I highly recomend these ProCom Vent Free Heaters.

10 year old ProCom heaters still heating!
I purchased 3 ProCom 20,000 BTU heaters with optional blowers which I installed, over 10 years ago, from Northern Tool, when I built my new 3-stall garage. One stall is used for my wood shop and the other two house my classic cars. The wood shop is separated by a wall to keep the dust out of my car shop. These heaters have been trouble free for over 10 years. The one in the wood shop does require frequent cleaning, only beacuse of the wood dust, but has never given me any problems. The heaters are very effecient to run and use very little propane. Now my wood shop business has grown along with the size of my wood shop so it's time to say goodbye to my ProCom ventless heater and install a Mr Heater 75,000 BTU garage heater which vents to the outside. The two ProCom heaters in my car shop bays will remain for many years to come. The only draw back I ever found to the ProCom 20,000 ventless heaters was the moisture they cause, since a by-product of LP gas is moisture. With any ventless heater you will get moisture, especially if you start and stop the units. I leave mine on all winter and the moisture concern is much less. My wood shop tools with steel table did show signs of rusting, due to the moisture, but I cleaned and treated them with a rust prevenative coating and it solved the problem. As I stated above with the increase in my wood craft business, the increased shop size and the amount my wood shop tools cost, I decided to go with a vented garage heater. I purchased my new Mr Heater MHU75LP through Northern Tool also. This heater is also amazing and since it is vented outside there will be no more moisture in my shop and the 75000 BTU will keep me warm for many winters to come up here in the U.P. of Michigan. The ProCom heater I removed was still in excellent shape with slight discoloring around the vents. This discoloration over time comes from the oil which is present in LP or natural gas. My friend who helped me lift my new Mr Heater up to the ceiling asked if I had any plans for the ProCom heater that I removed. He made a call to his son and the heater is now installed in his garage!

I got this from Northern last winter after an ice storm knocked out electrical power for ten days. I installed this unit in my hall and it kept my whole house warm enough to stay in. Now I use this unit more than my central heat.

Procom Blue Flame Wall Heater is Fantastic!!!!
This product's heating is great. I have bought two of these radiant heaters for my mother's house. She is a real critric when it comes to products and this one really impressed my mother. I am sold on all the features of this heater. It heats fast and heats the surrending area very well. Last year in the middle of the winter we had to replace our old heater and replaced it with the Procom.
