Andy, most any propane operated equipment will give off a distinctive smell but you should NOT smell pure propane. That is a very dangerous situation and should be corrected before further use. I would first ensure all the connections are tight then turn on the gas valve at the cylinder then apply a soap solution to all the fittings and check for leakage. You will note foaming or bubbles if there is a leak.

I am in the same situation and have checked the options thoroughly. We installed an unvented propane wall heater in our unheated basement 2 years ago and it works well in knocking the chill out of the room. I don't need to leave it run for a long period of time in order to get the temp up, but there can be condensation with too much humidity depending upon the outside temperature and the length of time I run the heater.

I now need to heat a 700 sq foot sunroom. Because of the amount of windows, I am going to have a vented propane wall heater installed professionally. This will be connected to the outside tank we use for the basement heater. The vented heater will not cause a condensation buildup in the sunroom. I'll be using the sunroom for working out, and I want it warmer for a longer period of time than the basement.

I just don't want to take a chance by taking the cheap way out with a portable heater, and then be concerned about CO or causing a fire. Spending alot of $$$ is the last thing I want to do, but peace of mind and safety are worth the additional cost.

We have a 330 gallon tank and I'm plumbing the garage with propane lines to add larger propane heaters later on. Until then, though, will the pressure and regulator that comes with this heater work on that line?

That really just boils down to how often you want to change the tank out. A 40 lb tank should last a very long time heating such a small space.

Depending on how long you want to run your heater. The size of the tank will only effect run time, not BTU output.
20lb. Will have to be replaced sooner than a 100lb. But unless you have propane delivery, you will have to transport the tank, which will be heavy.

I bought his heater to warm a storage unit while I am working in it. There is no power so I bought a 100W/500W power inverter. Even in the 500W mode and hooked directly to the battery and the car running) \, when I plug in the heater, I hear the ignitor sparking for a few seconds and then the inverter goes into error mode.

It's almost as if the ingitor puuls to many amps or volts at the very beginning. I can see the fan motor and it is only 0.75 amps and 40 watts.

I cannot get the heater to work

At the unit or in the room? It just keeps heating so when it gets to the desired temp you need to turn it down or off for a little while, its not something you can leave totally un-monitored.

A 20 lb tank will last about 12 to 14 hours on low setting. Just make sure you do not do a tank exchange available at most retail box stores or gas stations etc.. They only have around 16 lbs of gas in them. Get your tanks filled at a service or refilling station and get the full 20 lbs in the tank. The cost is about the same if not cheaper.
