  • What type of fuel can the Val6 heaters use?
    We recommend Val6 heaters use clean Diesel 1, Diesel 2, and Kerosene. Most important is the fuel is clean and free from any particles that would clog the nozzle. Diesel farm oil will only work if filtering is complete. Waste oil usually is too dirty.
  • Can you use the heaters outdoors in bad weather?
    Because the heaters use radiant technology they perform just as well in good weather or bad, heating the objects not the air. Most of the major football stadiums use them on the field. Val6 heaters work in wind, rain, snow or all three combined.
  • Can you use the heater indoors and can I really use Diesel fuel and it won’t create a smell?
    It’s perfect for indoors, because the heater burns so efficiently burning 98.9 percent of the fuel and emitting only 1-2 ppm(parts per million) CO. Of all portable heaters the Val6 heater has the smallest footprint on the environment. No smell, no smoke, no fumes, no pollutants, no wind, and no noise.
  • How long will the heater run on one tank of fuel?
    11 to 24 hours depending on the model, except for the smaller Daystar which will run for about 5 hours.
  • Is there a thermostat to control the temperature?
    All Val6 heaters come thermostat ready. Just clip in an optional digital thermostat and you’re ready to go.
  • Are there any special operating procedures?
    Just fill with clean fuel, plug into a 110 outlet or a 12v car battery 150w inverter (only 80w required) and turn on the switch. To shut down, turn off at the switch and wait the two minute self cleaning and cool down phase to complete.
  • Are there any safety features, like if the heater tips over?
    There are many safety features built in to the Val6 heaters including a tip-over switch and an overheat sensor.
  • Why can’t I order my heater online?
    The Val6 heater is so unique you have to see it to believe it. We have dealers all over the country. If you can’t find one just call us.
