Keeping Your Comfort In Control
In order to meet all your heating needs, Vanguard VentFree Gas Heaters are available in manually operated,
thermostatically and remote controlled models.
Manual Control – Blue Flame & Infrared Models
Vanguard’s Manually Controlled Vent-Free Heaters allow
you to choose the heat setting you prefer by simply
turning the control knob. The heater will operate at the
selected level until the control knob is turned to off or
another setting.
Thermostatically Controlled
Blue Flame & Infrared Heaters
Blue flame models operate by gradually modulating
the heat output and flame height from the selected
setting to lower settings, or pilot, in order to maintain
a consistent room temperature. Operating from pilot,
thermostatically controlled infrared models turn all the
plaques on or off to maintain the heat output desired.

You can simply operate the heater
on and off with the hand held remote control, manually
or set it to thermostat to maintain a consistent room
temperature. Also, you can program the remote to turn
the heater on and off at a desired time twice a day. For
example, the first set can turn on the heater at 6:00
a.m. and turn off the heater at 7:30 a.m., giving you
complete control. Use the second set to turn the heater
on and off at a different time of day or evening. Other

Vent-Free Gas Space Heaters
Blue Flame Vent-Free
Gas Space Heaters
Blue Flame Convection Heaters work much like
a central heating system. They warm the air
first, then people and objects. Altogether, the
heat is more “gentle” as the warming process
occurs. Adding to its beauty, the blue flame
glows through tempered, tinted glass for warm,
intimate comfort.
