vented propane wall furnace

7 posts in this topic

Looking for vented wall furnace for fish house. Have posted in "wanted" forum but might start looking for new ones too. What are some places that sell them and what brands are out there other than Empire? Looking for something in the 15k btu range.

Any features to make note of when purchasing?

As we speak I am looking at a Northern Tool and Equipment catalog that I just received here at work, and they have some that run from 10,000 BTU's to 28,000 BTU's the price range is from $100 to $200 Both radiant and blue-flame models. I know they have a show room in Burnsville, and I think there is one in Maple Grove but I am not sure of that location. Go to northerntool dot com

I bought one for my fish house at Fleet farm last year; they had 15,000 and 20,000 btu models. These are vented through the wall. They may not have them until closer to the heating season. I believe the brand name was Orbis.

Danny Berg,

No problem, I was also looking into ventless models but being that I plan on making this house a sleeper house and my kids will be sleeping in it, I will stick with a vented model.

I've checked fleet farm, menards, home depot, and northern tools but nobody has wall furnaces in stock - YET. Some said any day now. Anyone know of any in stock as of today?

Thanks again.

I am going to my Fishhouse this weekend to get some things out of it.I will look at who mfd'd my heater. Maybe they have a wall model available, I think it was built in Little Falls, or somewhere in that area. Let you know what I find out.

my only recommendation would be to get the biggest heater you can for your house. a direct vent heater puts out a lot less heat than the same btu ventless heater, i think because its drawing cold outside air rather than the inside air. i wish i had bought a bigger one for my house, but i still like it better than my old ventless

    • I've only tried them with Northern, but honestly, I'm not sure I could taste the difference if I didn't make them myself.  All psychological, IMO - this will likely start an off-topic discussion BUT I participated in an 8 person taste test between Walleye, Northern and Bass (yes, we cut-up a medium sized bucket-mouth).  I was the only one to name all three fish correctly and it was only due to the fact that my friend who was in-charge of the test accidentally missed a y-bone so I just had to guess in-between walleye and bass and I guessed correctly.  A couple of the guys also had a y-bone and got their guess between 'eye and bass wrong!!!  Flaky white fish is flaky white fish - especially when you bust it all up, mix it with bread crumbs, mayo and whatever else.  Again, just my opinion.
    •   I agree the split did not work out. Also a lot of people are on FB. Heck I finally joined last year. Jury is still out whether I like it or not!!
    •   Just like you being a social media queen, LOL

    • Every one said, with out Double here we may as well leave.   So, Welcome back may be with you here they will come back now! 
    • My buddy Dan and I have been going to the same farm for 3 years now and the turkey hunting is almost unfair. We've never been skunked and the only time we haven't tagged out is the first year.    This year the bowhunting was tough. We were trying to be fancy and get things on film and it hurt us tremendously. So, naturally, we gave up on filming and went back to having fun.    We shot 4 turkeys, a tom and a jake each, all by fanning (reaping). The action was intense and super fun. Additionally, after having a set busted by a wandering daytime coyote, I lip squeaked her into to 20 yards and finished her off with the same treatment, a load of #6 to the face. My jake and the coyote are on cell phone video so I will see about sharing those.   My tom, came on the last day. He ran more than 200 yds just to confront that turkey fan. Due to a depression in the landscape, I had no idea where he would come up. He emerged at 10 FEET! and in a split second I shot him at 8FEET!! Thankfully I had the bead on his head or I would've likely missed. Nothing beats turkey hunting with your best buddy.    And I'm having a taxidermist friend of mine do a euro mount on the coyote skull. Unfortunately the hide was shedding terribly and was matted with mud. 
    • Merriam hybrid killed in Nebraska 5/4/17. 
    • Bonus points!  Well done Andy.  
    • Now I figured out how to add pictures. Time to submit for a score. 
    • I think they got greedy and it backfired. Lots of ads everywhere, requiring subscriptions for some forums. They split the boards up into two different websites (fishing MN and HSO), the boards went down for a while, and most the traffic got fed up it all and just moved on. I used to check this place daily, now maaaaybe once a week.
