Ventless and BlueFlame heater opinions Wanted!!!

4 posts in this topic

I have to replace my fish house heater this year and have had my eye on a ventless style of heater instead of the can style I have now. it will be much safer for my little guys in the future as far as burning themselves on it goes. I would like to see some opinions on a ventless VS blue flame heaters or just a normal vented wall heater and also get more info on this subject in general. Thanks in advance

Vented is the only way to go IMHO. Especially with a sleeper, ventless puts out tons of moisture in the air, if you read installation manual on any ventless is always says for supplemental heat only or something on that order. Manual Requires a direct source of combustion/dilution air, in other words, open a window. There is plenty of reasons our State fuel gas code has banned all ventless heaters in MN in any occupancy. With that said, the code does not apply to fish houses.

if you're going to sleep in it, I'd go vented, especially if your kids will be with you. for a day house, ventless is fine. I have a 10,000 btu ventless in my 6X12 and it will heat me out of the house. I have a direct vent in my shack on mille lacs.

I have used a ventless heater in my fishhouse for several years and I have no complaints. Simple, cheap and efficient. The one thing I noticed was the gas line fittings...make sure they don't leak and use a proper fitting sealant. I learned one of my brand new heaters had leaks in the fittings from the factory...that will make the heater stink and you'll know something is wrong.

I would recommend a fan to circulate air as these heaters do create more moisture in the air, it's not a dry heat like the vented heaters.

Definitely use a CO detector.

    • Thanks for the advice guys...keep it coming!   Much appreciated before I make a pretty expensive investment.   Ref
    •   I stated they are better than 3/4 yrs ago compared to themselves...my point is the Wild are far from a top tier top 8 team when it counts come playoff playoff time...period...no arguing what just happened.  BB was very vocal in the Presser..."we need to get Bigger/Stronger" and Fletch missed that boat time and time again. Career Years are great personal stats...am I happy for Granlund, Staal, Nino...yes...but personal stats only gets you more personal $$, but if those stats don't translate into team goals they are all for naught....and every NHL Player will tell you that. They did exceed my reg season projection but their true colors showed losing in the first round so over all I was spot on  IMO this team will be missing more than one of these "career year" guys by the start of the new season if BB has more say...and I am getting the feeling he will be getting more say on personel.
    • We just got shut out down by Caledonia also so don't feel bad and we've been turkey hunting since 1980.  We were on private land also but found the birds still flocked up.  We had flocks of 12 - 15 birds we were trying to work and it didn't work.  2 out of 3 could have shot jakes and we all had plays that just did not work out.  That's turkey hunting.
    • I have mapped but never submitted it to be processed. However I have downloaded maps from insight and used them. They work good if your willing to go thru the extra step to download them. If I remember correctly you will have to choose them in chart options or it will just show your regular insight map. The real nice thing is they are free!   I mostly use Navionics I find I like them better than the insight maps & its easier to download user generated maps.
    • Do you know if the GPS tracker part works without cell service? I think that is going to be my biggest issue, I don't know if I can track another phone from my phone without cell signal.
    • Come on BB, you don't have to be positive or a homer to realize this team is light years better than they were 3/4 years ago. The results haven't changed, but that isn't saying they haven't improved. 3/4 years ago we had young guys like Brodin, Haula, Coyle, Nino just getting their wings. This year they had career years in many cases. That is precisely what we have been hoping/waiting for them to do. The way you talk it seems like you forget that the NHL playoffs are best of 7 series. That's a long grind for any team to make and you have to have a lot of luck and some guys playing out of their mind to make it to the finals. I'm not happy they lost in 5 to the Blues, but I'm not giving up on this team either. They do need to make changes, which will reshape this team for next season. Pump some more youth into the lineup and we could certainly have some up and down next year. Like I said before, go back and see our predictions for where they would finish at the beginning the of the season. I am pretty sure I said they would finish like 5th place. Finishing 2nd all things considered, was a pleasant surprise, but guess what, everyone whined about it! LOL
    • Possible but I'm not sure who owns what patent.
    • For those of you that have not seen this yet. This will be making it's way into my frog box    
    • Have any of you guys tried the Stanley ribbit frogs?  I picked up a couple of packs at my local wally world for a $1 a pack.   On a side note I saw a video of Jacob Wheeler talking about using a buzzbait and putting a biffle bug on it instead of a skirt, he mentioned that they hit it better and hold on to it a little longer since there is some mass there.  I wonder if a zoom horny toad would work for that as well since the biffle bugs are expensive.
    • HAs anyone here used this software to map your lakes?  Has anyone downloaded the lakes that are on the shared cloud?  I have a hook 7 and some of the lakes around have been mapped, it would be nice to download them and use that instead of the other map.
