  • Description

    The BF20 produces an inviting atmospheric warmth quickly and efficiently. The BF-20 is equipped with a hydraulic thermostat and modulates from 8,500 BTUs to 20,000 BTUs for continuous temperature control. The modulating hydraulic thermostat upon reaching the preset comfort level, cycles the main burner flame from HI to LO and, when the thermostat is satisfied, to OFF while leaving the pilot on. This reduces the large flame to a smaller flame while still emitting heat. This blue flame heater features top mounted controls for convenience and ease of use, plus a push button igniter for matchless pilot lighting.

    Vent-Free Products are intended to be used as a supplemental or secondary heat source. Freestanding floor "installation" is available with option base (SRS-18) and an optional blower (SRB-18T) is also available (each sold separately).
    • Test-fired in the factory
    • Oxygen-Depletion Sensor shuts off the unit if there is not enough available fresh air
    • Quiet as a whisper
    • Durable, scratch-resistant finish
    • Gas heats for less than half the cost of electricity
    • Gas heat also continues to function in the event of a power outage
    If window condensation problems are common in your home, installing a vent-free heater may not be a good option for you. This appliance may be installed in an aftermarket manufactured (mobile) home, where not prohibited by state or local codes.

    Available in Natural Gas BF-20N and Liquid Propane BF20L

    A licensed gas technician is required for installation of this product. Please check your local regulations as some areas may require inspection after installation of gas products. It is highly recommended that you use your own gas technician or gas provider for any repairs.
