The BF30 produces an inviting warmth quickly and efficiently. A Blue Flame heater will warm the room starting with objects in the room including the wall on which it is installed and travel up as heat does. If your room has a ceiling fan with reversible blades, this will also help spread the heat throughout the room.
The BF-30 is equipped with a hydraulic thermostat and modulates from 8,500 BTUs to 30,000 BTUs for continuous temperature control. With a modulating hydraulic thermostat once the preset comfort level is reached, the unit cycles the main burner flame from HI to LO and, when the thermostat is satisfied, to OFF while still leaving the pilot on. This reduces the large flame to a smaller flame while still emitting heat. This vent free heater should not be used as a primary heat source. 
Although gas heats cleanly, efficiently, and for less than half the cost of electricity, 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 allowed by state or local codes.
