Yes, I have the thermostatic one (it is actually less expensive than the hi-lo version I previously had in my LY moho). It has a pilot light, so there is no electricity whatsoever involved.
As for the installation, the PO of my AS had had a catalytic heater installed. All I did was remove it and put the blueflame in the same location.
It is necessary to have a propane line brought to the place you want to install the heater. To do this safely (and without compromising your insurance), have it done by a licensed gas technician. The job is not very difficult - it just requires splicing a tee into the existing gas line (remember that they use flared fittings) and running it to a shut-off valve and then to the propane connection at the bottom of the heater.
After the Halloween kids have gone to bed, I'll snap a picture of mine and post it.
