Propane Furnace - 75,000 Btu/hr - Perfect for Garage

I have a Conquest 80 furnace for sale. Rated for 75,000 Btu/hr. It has been converted to run on propane. This was installed in my garage and used only occasionally over the past 15 years. Air intake is on the side, and discharge is on the top. Comes with galvanized steel ductwork and exhaust piping (if you want it). Black iron gas piping & valve included as well.

Asking $150, but I'm open to reasonable offers!!

PM me if you have any questions. Thanks.

I put an evap cooler (poor mans A/C) in my garage several years ago so I could work almost year around and not cook batteries dry in the Arizona summer. This is a great solution for all of you living in snow country. Add a thermostat, leave it set at 50 degrees and your diesel will start without any issues or glow plug usage.

GLWTS,

That reminds me - the unit is already wired for a thermostat, with about 10 feet of wire attached. So, all you need is an inexpensive t-stat to mount on the wall.

You're too far away for me unfortunately, but I'm wondering how big a garage will this heat(75K btu/hr)?

How long would 20 gal propane tanks last?

Rough numbers:
20 gallons propane x 91500 Btu/gal = 1,830,000 BTU

So, firing at 75,000 Btu/hr, you will use 20 gal propane in about 24 hours.

Now, this does not take into consideration whether or not a small 20-gal propane cylinder has a vaporization rate high enough to feed this furnace. I don't think it does. I always ran it off either a single 100-gal or twin 100-gal tanks.

The smallest Harman stove, P38 no less, will heat a large 2 car garage and keep comfy down to about -5f outside. Super easy to vent...super easy to maintain.
Sorry for the hi jack...GLWS.
