Ventless heaters

11 posts in this topic

I've seen some models of ventless wall mount heaters out there. How do they work? is it ok to use one in a sleeper house? Do you need some extra ventilation?

Thanks!

The ventless wall mounts do work pretty well but it states on the package that they are not to be used in bedrooms. We have a couple in our deer hunting trailer that has pretty good natural ventilation and we have not tripped our CO2 detector. I would not use them in a sleeper house.

I have used a ventless heater in my sleeper for 5 yrs, now and have never set off the co detector, I installed vents, and when I stay overnight I just crack the windows

Have had mine for 4 years and had very little problems. The only problem is sometimes the igniter wont lite the pilot, sililar to a gas grill. Mine has an automatic shut down in case there is no oxygen. Slept numerous times in the house, just crack the window a little and your fine. I always bring a bottle of soapy water and check connections just in case.

I have used one for the past few years. A pro-com 10,000 btu and it is very safe as long as you have vents in your fish house.

Have Fun!

Not being vented they will put a lot of moister into the shack. These heaters have to burn clean. Dust, dirt and cobwebs on the element will make them burn dirty.
A CO detector is a must. When venting keep in mind that you have to supply enough air for you to breath and enough for your heater to burn.

Gus,
Be careful if you pass-wind in a sleeper without ventilation and a unventilated heater. Not only will it smell bad, but you may also blow yourself up.

When it comes to carbon monoxide, I would just like the piece of mind when I go to sleep that there is no C02 (carbon monoxide) in the room i'me in!
Lets see, breath poison or pure air?
Go with a vented stove. I would!!
Good Luck!! wink.gifsmile.gifgrin.gif

Needless to say, ventilation is a must in any ice shanty where there are men drinkin' schmitz beer. If the CO2 from the heater don't kill ya, the human gas will!

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
