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!
