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!

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
