Question

Why the altitude limit?

I thought this was a great idea for a Christmas present for my husband with his new garage we just built, until I got to the advisory that it's not recommended for altitudes over 4500 ft. We are about 5400 ft. Why would it matter?

The manufacturer does not recommend using the Mr. Heater Blue Flame Propane Heaters, IK-517519, at elevations above 4,500 feet because operating the heater above elevations of 4,500 feet could cause the pilot/ODS to shut down the heater.
