AZ Patio Heater Portable Stainless Steel Tabletop Heater
Used the heater for the first time tonight, Outside temp was only about 60 degrees F. Went through a full 1lb tank in just over 2 hours. Heat setting was set on \"low inch the entire time As soon as the flame went out I replaced the tank and was surprised to find the Bottom half of the empty tank was covered in frost !!!!! Is this normal? Do I have a defective unit, that is allowing the tank to empty to quickly.. 2 hour duration on low setting seems a bit short to me and finding the empty tank covered In frost makes me wonder if the tank is being evacuated to quickly. My local cost for a 1lb tank is $4.00 so if it gets depleted in about 2 hours, cost to fuel this heater Is $1.00 or more an hour. Seems expensive to me. Maybe I need to buy one of those house fitting adapters that will allow me to connect to a standard 20lb propane tank, which only costs $14.00 to refill Anyone care to comment on your experience on fuel usage and specifically why a 1 lb tank freezes up and gets covered with frost?
