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.

    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
    • Fletch's hands are totally tied by his own doing, keep in mind our 1st round pick this year was 15 games of Hanzal...definitley not worth it. Fletch needs to get off his duff and pull the trigger on a Scandella trade real soon for a decent Forward and not pass up an OK opportunity by "hoping" for the homerun and missing out on a good opportunity.  IMO our only hope is that other teams are "watered down" more than we are and that our vets can hang in there one more year.
    • Wondermous!!  Anytime, fivebucks! Years of workin' on that stuff does count for something!!!  I wish ya WOULDA bet me!!     Glad ya got 'er done!!!  
    •   I just can't help myself when I look at Boober's goodies!!!      Wait....did that sound right?  
    • sheez reb................i hadda clean all your slobber off the inside my screen when i opened this thread!!!!!!!!!!
