Vanguard Contemporary Vent-Free

The Ultimate In Versatility In Infrared Heater Performance.


Each Infra-Stat Thermostatically Controlled Heater offers a comfort selector thermostat plus three or four optional heat settings depending on the model selected. This dual control system provides the widest range of gas space heating flexibility in the industry.
Regardless of the season or how warm you choose to be, you can enjoy the ultimate in zone heating comfort with the Vanguard Infra-Stat heater.
While others offer a single heat output on thermostatic models, only Infra-Stat offers the versatility of three or four heat settings. This gives you the flexibility to achieve the specific comfort level to meet all your heating needs.
Operation of the 99.9% efficient Infra-Stat is simple and the results are outstanding.

Vanguard Infra-Stat operation is easy.

First start the heater by rotating the Infra-Stat thermostat control to the “pilot” position and depress the piezo ignitor to establish the pilot flame. Next, use the heat selector knob to select the BTU heat output desired. From this point on, it’s a matter of simply rotating the Infra-Stat thermostat control until the temperature is ideal for you. The setting chosen on the Infra-Stat thermostat control determines how frequently the unit cycles between pilot and the BTU output selected. In short, the higher the thermostat setting, the longer the plaque(s) stay on and the warmer the temperature in the room will become.
Connects to gas source - no vent pipe or chimney required.
Easily installed on wall or floor (with included feet.) See Owner’s Manual.

Chart based upon an area with a ceiling less than 10 feet.

For the Lowest Heat Setting, a single plaque heats to the comfort level selected. The unit cycles between pilot and that setting to maintain the temperature
For Mid Range Heat, two plaques cycle between pilot and the desired comfort level selected.
Unique in the larger model is a Medium/High Setting, which cycles between pilot and the three plaques.
For High Heat Output, all plaques operate, cycling between pilot and the maximum output to maintain comfort level selected on the Infra-Stat control.
