According to Fish House Supply, they're ideal for ice houses 14 to 20 feet. I'd say yeah, it would work.

Hawk I bought your neighbor Mels big pig of a house. They bought a different one and me and a couple guys had the great idea of redoing this one. Well its coming alone but didnt expect this much work. It was pretty much in need of a total renovation. It will be nice when its done. I haven't heard of anybody having this heater and was wondering if it would work. You can buy them for under $200 so thought what the hey.

I saw his new house and didn't even think about sell the old. The ventless heaters will put alot of humidity in the air, which causes alot of problems in a house even if a window is left open. I know alot of people use them. I think not having a fresh air draw caused alot of the problems in that house anyway, That and not putting a wood on the metal tubing.

We went and put wood on the metal tubing and then put up a vapor barrier. We are now puting some pretty heavy paneling in now. We also removed every screw in the sheet metal and replaced with the rubber washer selve tapping screws a size bigger. Then we caulked every seam on the house. I am pretty confident it wont leak but i also dont want to a heater that is gonna make vapor moisture. This may not be the ticket then. Prolly go with a direct vent wall mount.

Also, if you're sleeping in it, vented is so much safer. You don't want to wake up dead.

    • When you rip up the floor, do you only need  replace the foam if it's wet? Also am I going to have to take out the consoles and windshield. I'm assuming I'll have to....Thinking of starting the project in the next month or so.
    • Not going to worry about much until later in the season, we know they can't stay crazy hot forever and slumps will happen, just as long as they are too long I will be happy. I just want them playing really well down the stretch.

    • I've said for years that he needs to wear a helmet, but it was for entirely different reasons.
    • I think that is talking about painkillers etc.      Likely he is taking stuff like statins and blood pressure meds as a minimum.  And he had some depression issues, as I recall, so perhaps something for that.     I saw a thing on TV that said it could have been a vasovagal syncope.  Basically you pass out due to stress.
