ProCom Vent-Free Dual Fuel Infrared Radiant Wall Heater - 5-Plaque, 30,000 BTU, Model# MD5TPA
owner of business
This heater is the best I have ever used it heats our 6 office rooms in a building 42 ft X 32 ft and keep them comfortable, and uses less LP gas than other models. We have tried the 30,000 blue frame but it do not do the job as this heater does. You can not go wrong with this heater, BEST BUY EVER.

This heater does a great job of heating my 800 sq ft (with 25 ft ceiling) un-insulated garage, I do not have the fan option, but you can feel the radiant heat from 20ft away. My only complaint, and the reason for the 4 star rating, is that the piezo ignitor failed after approximately a dozen uses. I'm using fireplace matches until I can attempt a repair.

Excellent heater, good price, outstanding customer service from Northern -- what's not to like? Heater performs well, is very efficient. Easy installation if you know how to run a black pipe gas line or have one existing. I would have liked slotted holes in the mounting bracket, and like another reviewer used my own wall anchors. Those provided are good for sheet rock, not as good for concrete block, but the bracket works well. I also installed a second lower spacer and screw, although the single one provided is sufficient. I've had no problems with the heater at just under 5000 ft. elevation, and it's doing a great job of heating three adjoining open rooms, about 700 sq. ft.in total, with a ceiling fan in the room where it's installed. The instructions are adequate. Gas inlet is on the bottom right as you face the heater. I'm very pleased and highly recommend this heater. The optional fan is well worth the price and is also recommended.

Unit works very well, easy hook up, sits on floor or hangs on wall. Could be more attractive looking

30,000 BTU wall heater
Fairly easy to install providing that you possess the proper tools (and if not you can always order them from northern tool to help with the installation) I installed my heater with 1/2 black pipe with a drip leg installed where it reduced to 3/8. Very satisfied with the performance of the heater, heats over 700 sq feet of basement. May buy another one for my outbuilding rather then burning wood.

Huge money saver!!!
we bought our Procom-Vent Free wall heater last yr. in Nov. we live in a home that was costing us 175-225 a month to heat with our natural gas furnace! Now our bill is 46. - 60. a month and this is winter billing! This heater was very simple to install, hook up to natural gas and put the legs on; we've sat it infront of our fireplace it heats our whole downstairs about 1200 sqt & were thinking about buying another for our upstairs! I would highly recommend this to anyone; in fact our friends have bought one and are just as happy as we are!

After hiring a qualified professional to install the heater I was informed that I needed additional plumbing attached to the base of the unit. He informed me that it was necessary, in order to allow for possible condensation that might accumulate in the gas pipe. The stand that I ordered with the unit did not allow for this additional plumbing (stand to low to the floor). Therefore the unit could only be attached to the wall. Please check you plumbing codes before you purchase this unit.

great feeiling of radiant heat
we have had this model for two winters in Montana and it is very comfortable to stand or sit in front of; the heater also heats the entire living area of around 700 sq ft with the setting never above 2; be sure to buy the auxillary fan if you don't have ceiling fans; the aux fan can be a little loud so we usually turn it on auto when not in that part of the house and off when sitting there. Our uint is mounted low on the wall and we built a simple faux hearth under it to conceal propane connection

ProCom Vent-Free Dual Fuel comfort heater
I purchased my first heater four years ago. Two months later my next and now 4yrs later im going for my third.They are incredible 100 percent comfort and efficientcy. I have one in my basement which keeps all my pipes and floors nice and warm [nice for my dog and our feet].there is one on my first floor also which keeps my boiler from coming on.The heater on the first floor is located directly under my bedroom on the second floor, which by the way keeps my bedroom nice and comfortable,The heater on the first floor heats two 12 by 12 rooms and a 12 by 15ft room nicely.The heaters have a built in thermostat that works excellant .The heater is odorless and noiseless.When they come on my dog lays right down in front and goes right to sleep. Take my word for it they are extremely efficient, affordable and maintainance free. Buy two at a time its easier.
