thermostat on vent free heater

Recommended Posts

Looking at putting a vent free heater in my 6.6X14 and wondering about the thermostats. I heard that some are variable and increase or decrease flame between min and max btu but never goes to pilot only and that ohers simply turn burner to high, medium, low or off (pilot).

those of you that have vent free wall mounts, can you provide any feedback on how your thermostat really works and the model?

My thoughts are that I can slightly overpower with the max BTU for initial heating, but my fear is that once it is heated up, the lowest setting will still be too hot. Ideally I can find one that has variable heat control between high and low (not be either high or low) and also turn itself to pilot only.

Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

I was recently looking at heaters for my permanent house. I had similiar questions. There were variable settings on some and then thermostats on another model, like the "fishhouse" model.

I couldn't believe the thermostat icehouse heaters were an extra $40 for 10,000 BTU models at Fleet Farm.

Does anyone have any feedback on the Dyno Glo make?

Can someone tell me where they purchased a Dyno Glo? I was planing on putting a vented smokestack type of heater in my recently completed 7' x 9' ice house. However, if I could avoid drilling a hole in my roof, i would certainly like to not create this potential leak source. It is roofed in steel barn siding and currently is impervious to the elements. Some feedback I had on ventless heaters ( i.e,; Budy Heaters, etc) is that they will make your house "sweat" too much. Any response to this concern? Thanks

    • It looks like you were using my cell phone to take those pics. I'm also surprised an old guy like you could stay up that late! Just kidding!
    • Thank you, looks like I have a ton of them and not the goldies, I'm kind of disappointed. There's quite a bit of difference, I must have been fooled by the yellow on the siskins. It's been a while since I had either. I'm still looking for my bird books to identify the others. It seems the older I get the better I get at hiding stuff from myself! Thanks again, Mark
    • not my pic but here is a winter goldie. pretty drab
    • pine siskins. look a lot like winter goldies just smaller
    • Eyeguy, do you have a picture of a winter goldfinch and a pine siskin? I'm not 100% sure I know the difference. Any idea what the birds are I posted about with the colored backs? Those are on the safflower seed heavy, not on the niger at all. I wish I had a lens to take a picture to show you.
    • lots of pine siskins have been moving thru here. 
    • 1.21.19 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report, NW Angle of LOW,

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      We are making ice up here at Sunset Lodge and with fresh snow coming the trails should be in great shape.

      In Minnesota, we are seeing really nice saugers mixed in with walleye in 26-29ft. Rippin raps and rattle baits are calling fish to the house during slower portions of the day. Pink and white remains the favored color combo. Work these baits aggresively as they will attract fish, mellow out as fish appear on electronics, then finesse them with a more subtle presentation to seal the deal.

      Crappies continue to come in from Canada. Electronics are key with a small presentation such as a tungsten jig with a small piece of minnow. Walleye action is hot off points and reefs on flats between 24-28 ft. 

      Until next week!
      Sunset Lodge
    • I've seen a huge uptick in birds around my place as well.  I have let the feeder go empty now because the deer get to them before the birds do but still lots of birds in the yard. 
    • All of a sudden, the last week or so, I can hardly keep up filling the feeders! Redpolls by the hundreds and goldfinches so thick I fill the niger seed feeder every day. I thought Purple finches went away in the winter but I have something that looks just like them too. I also have some little finch type birds that some have either pinkish red backs under the wings or some are orangeish. Any idea what they might be? Those along with all the cardinals, nuthatches, and assorted others have me wondering what I'm going to spend my money on, their groceries or mine. I've got 4 times more birds than I had all last summer but I'm not complaining, they are a hoot to watch fight over the perches.
