Commercial Waste Oil Heaters / Re: heat exchanger rust

Thanks for being honest about this not being the best choice for my garage size. Although I liked using the waste oil[free fuel] it is way oversize for my needs. I will look into another fuel source. Maybe I can sell this one. Thanks again

Is there waste oil heaters that small a BTU or do I need to look at propane. I have propane.  Electric would be expensive.

It is just under 11 to the ceiling. I would have to measure to be accurate but about 10' 10". Is 2x4 walls with fiberglass insulation as is the ceiling. I have a barn style roof but the upstairs is not insulated. If you need more detailed info let me know. At work now. It is a 3 bay garage with insulated garage doors. Hate to switch but there might not be a unit small enough. Thanks for you time and effort on this.

That is the correct size. Guess the guy I bought it from wanted to sell one. No wonder it heated so good! Would this be to small an area to really use one? I would like to use one again but maybe need some guidance on the proper setup to use. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks again

This Clean Burn unit has done well. Although I would like to keep it going it might be time to update. I would think technology has improved waste oil heaters. My garage is 36x28. I only run it when I am out there not 24/7. It is ceiling hung. Some of the new ones seem very long which could be difficult to hang in the corner. Are the newer heat exchangers less prone to surface rust? What are some pros and cons of the ones out there?

I have a Clean Burn CB-86-AH. Bought new in 1990. Has worked well with some minor repairs. The heat exchanger has surface rust that blows out as fine particles all over my cars in the garage. Not a good thing. Would there be someway to dissemble and clean the outside of the tubes and paint/coat them to stop the rust? Maybe a powder coating. Would it be better to send the unit to a professional and have reconditioned? Looked for the heat exchanger but no luck. I like this unit and would like to keep it going. I could take it to someone if close enough. If I left anything out let me know. Thanks Jerry
