SunFire | FAQ’s
The SunFire 150 will outperform torpedo-style heaters in multiple important categories for many commercial applications. It’s quiet, virtually odorless, and has ultra-low carbon monoxide emissions that far exceed OSHA standards for indoor commercial applications. This improves the health and performance of you and any of your employees. In addition, radiant heat will heat people and objects directly rather than simply blowing hot air like torpedo/bullet heaters. If using near an open door our out in the weather, heat from the SunFire will warm an object regardless of wind, unlike forced air heaters that depend on warm air to heat an object. The SunFire warms objects just like the sun. And the SunFire is built rugged-tough in the USA, not in China.
Yes, but it does require a pure sine wave current inverter with a minimum capacity of 800 Watts. This type of inverter is common in many construction and trade vehicles.

Yes, if you are reasonably handy with tools you should be able to handle any needed repairs yourself.
Yes, we have experience starting the heater from a cold start as low as -20 degrees F. The SunFire 150 comes with a heated fuel filter that keeps the fuel warm for quick start-up in cold conditions. Must be plugged in to warm the fuel filter.
In some cases, you may want to consider the use of a diesel fuel additive designed for cold start optimization.
Yes, there is a simple air shutter kit that be installed in the field for heater use at altitude. The heater has been field tested at over 10,000 ft. of altitude. Contact your Dealer for your specific application.
