    I would stay away from ventless units, it's not hard to install one properly and it's nice to wake up in the morning. The portables I was using while finishing up my house last nov-dec were making me sick. Once you get over the cost of the "B vent" tubing, the installation is pretty easy. I went to school on the Monitor kerosene units , they install fast with one hole bored through the wall, but they are not cheap to buy.

    And, do you know of any vented space heater that doesn't cost two arms and three legs---
    Yep you still need the regulator, no matter what tank you use because tank pressure is independent of tank size. A 1000 gallon tank or a P20 cylinder; a full tank or nearly empty tank will exert approximately the same pressures. The pressure inside a tank is at least 50 times higher than the pressures specified for most has appliances.

    I am not super familiar with equipment in that catagory, I really don't know.

    This would be exactly what I need and the right price range if I could get my gas dealer to install something I buy. It is vented so it meets code, doesn't cost $2,200 bucks (roughly half). Great tip.

    What's that about Monitor kerosene units?

    FOR BBQ-- yes, I now I need a regulator regardless of the tank size. What I am having trouble understanding is exactly what regulator would work off the 20 lb tanks: I see ads for a bazillion different
    regulators and don't know what I would actually need, and some are not 2 stage; and even among the 2 stage there is wide price and feature variation.

    Maybe all of this is moot. The unit Arborigine pointed out would be ideal and is starting to get into
    my price range if I can get my dealer gas to install it for me. (I bet they'd charge double that for the same unit if they bought it and resold it to me.)
