ProCom Vent-Free Dual Fuel Stove - 23,000 BTU, 850 Sq. Ft. Heating Area, Model# PCSD25RT
Better hope you never need service or parts
This is a great stove. Looks nice and does a good job of heating. However, you better pray you never need to call ProCom for service or parts. Had to hold for over one hour (not one time, but several times trying to get help). They promised to ship parts and it has been over a week and still no parts, no tracking number and I have been on hold for over 45 mins again trying to confirm part was shipped. We run a B & B and this terrible service and unreliable heater has cost us business. Will never buy a ProCom product again. NEVER

Looks good and very efficient
Believe it or not we have this on our screen porch we like to sit out there on weekend mornings reading the paper and having coffee and use it to knock off chill. It runs along time on a 100lb tank. One thing I added was four 80mm ball bearing computer cooling fans on the back at the top to blow through and come out the front. They are mounted to a length of aluminum angle and are operated with a toggle switch and powered by a small 12V lead acid battery out of an back up power supply.Lots of CFM and quiet. I need to get rid of the toggle switch and wire in a solenoid switch and have them operate in sync with the gas valve using the remote. The finish and all parts are in great shape after 3 years of Florida weather in a semi open area.

Excellent heat source
This is the 2nd year I will be using this heater. It is great. I have rarely needed to turn on our gas heat system. This stove heats the whole house, including the upstairs. I do not have the blower attached and it still does a great job. My heating bill has decreased some, too, which is a bonus. We've had wacky weather here within the last year that has resulted in extended power outages, so, this will run even in an outage. Great product. Highly recommend!

Great Ventless Heater
Had to replace our ventless propane heater (VanGuard) in summer 2011 because we changed from propane to natural gas. This model PCSD25RT with the remote looks great and operates efficiently in our walkout basement family room. We got the optional fan and hired a heating specialist to install it all. Great price and looks good too. Thanks Northern Tool!!!!

Nice little stove.
We use it every day in the winter. It does put out alot of heat with the blower.The blower is a little hard to install due to the lack of room for running the wires. Very tight if you have large hands. It's very light weight which means the metal is very thin and it is cheaply made.You can not adjust the flame either. But for the price I am still very Happy. The remote is nice as well. Nice looking stove and there is no problem getting the temp up to 76 degrees in about an hour when its in the 30's in my 1000 square foot room.

We have had this heater for over 2 years. And have never had a problem. It is used as the primary heat source of our house. There is a very slight odor when you come into the house from outside due to it being vent free. However it has never set off our CO alarm. I have recommended it to several people.

I installed this stove the first of December and it has worked great but needed the blower. I installed the blower the middle of December and was really enjoying the stove. This morning, it wouldn't ignite. I changed batteries but didn't help. I consulted the manual but there was nothing to cover the problem. I went to procom's website and got no results from the FAQ page so sent them an inquiry. They've not responded yet but has only been a half hour. I may have to call them on their toll-free number. While on their website, I discovered that the one year warrenty is void if a certified installer doesn't do the installation so I guess if you spent extra money on the extended warrenty, that would be lost also. If I'd known there actually was no warrenty, I wouldn't have purchased this stove. READ THE FIND PRINT.

Love my new stove!!!
Our new stove which we set up for propane is awesome. It's as attractive in person as in the catalog photo, and everything we expected. Love the three-sided wire mesh housing so the flame is visible all around. So far it's doing a great job as a "chill killer" in our very large house so we don't have to start a fire first thing every morning in the cooler weather. We also purchased the blower. It is soooo quiet! and really helps spread the heat around. The remote control is the best because the manual controls are all way down low on the front of the stove. Not very visible in bad light, so very nice to be able to turn on and off remotely. However, the blower was very tricky to install and took for granted that we knew a lot more about installing it than we did. (Bad photos in the installation guide.) I really recommend this stove to anyone who wants to save money on a gas stove and have an attractive heating unit in their home.

Dual Gas Ventless Stove
Easy installation, however, hard to initially get the "Pilot-Light" going, after many attempts, got it working.
Blower a must, really heats the whole house and looks "good".
Make sure you have model numbers when talking to "Help" line, gruppy service people.
Over all rating VERY GOOD, so far.
