This is a great looking unit and operates great. My husband put it together and I am not sure I would have wanted to tackle assembly by myself. It took him a little less than an hour to assemble. My only complaint with this heater is it is not a great heat generator, hence the 4 star - it is not effective at all in temperatures below 40 degrees. Provides just enough heat to take a little bite out of a cool autumn evening.
This heater is nice looking but does very little to the air on an open patio on a cold day. If you have a more enclosed outdoor area/patio, it works much better. It just doesn't put off enough heat to make the outside air comfortable. I put it in my garage while I was working at the bench and it made the air much more comfortable.
This is the second heater purchased for the screened porch. We were so impressed with the first that we ordered this one. Sitting next to the heater is lkike sitting in the sun...radiant heat is very warming. My partner is converting the heaters to use larger tanks, since we can go through 2 tanks in an evening with each heater, if we have guests and spend the entire evening on the porch. We have already recommended these to other people.

The product is exact to the description as posted in the web site. But it comes without the propane gas cylinder thus makes it not convenient to use upon receipt. As I cannot find the appropriate propane gas cylinder in Hong Kong can I order propane cylinder from overstock.com??
Like all Overstock orders, this item came promptly. I was pleased with the appearance and it seemed that it would do the job of keeping our plants alive in the makeshift plastic greenhouse that we constructed. I don't remember that the description noted that it ran on propane. I went out & bought four bottles of propane. Once it was ready to go- it didn't. My husband thinks it is the thermacoupler. We are now a few days from the 30-day return date, so hopefully he will get it up & running.
