Great Heater

" I purchased this heater after I built my shed. The shed is 12'x14' with 6' walls and a 6' gambrel roof. I haven't had a problem heating it up yet. The heater is easy to use, quick to start and pumps out heat quite nicely. Attaching it to a 20lb propane tank only takes a minute and lighting it takes even less time. My only complaint is that it doesn't throw the heat out very far. What is very nice, is that it does not radiate much heat to the sides or behind it. I can stand the propane tank against a wall without fear of combustion. "
