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

    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
