Just a brief warning.... a vent free heater like this gives off CO and uses up available oxygen so it needs a source of fresh air and shouldn't be used in a bedroom or where people sleep.

That type of infra heater doesn't operate well on low.
That control is not a variable flame control.... it's a thermostat.

In case you didn't get the full manual for your heater....
