Ventless heaters


Gus

Question

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!

      If your company is very large and has many employees, you will have to hire a professional company that is specifically dedicated to that, since a single professional will not be able to do everything, in the google search bar you can find many, but if someone here can recommend you one that has used it as much as possible is much better, good luck to your company and to you!

      BW is not a designated Trout lake. The limit is the same as state which I think is 5 bows. Don't think there is a size limit either since they don't breed.

      Rotes, Hi, I just joined this forum and these corner caps are just what I have been looking for. Is it possible at this late date to get a set of these made for my Lund? The only difference I can see is the color of the material. Would you be willing to make a set for me? Thanks, [email protected]

      Any move requires time and effort, but if you turn to a moving company for help, then some of the problems will disappear immediately. Firstly, the guys from the moving services always take care of the client's property, pack and carefully transfer your things to the car. Secondly, when moving with movers, you do not have to worry about the road, they choose the fastest and safest way, as they have extensive experience in transportation.

      Anybody know how much the lake temps have dropped?   Are people have the most success with minnows vs crawlers when fishing with live bait lately, or are crawlers still working?

      Snuck out last night, water Temps down to 54-56, last Thurs mid 60s. Fish were finicky. Leaves are changing quickly here, lots falling. Two weeks should be a lot better in the woods

      I agree with the previous comment, you could save a lot of money by making your website first .. its design .. and then if you want to move .. but if you want, you can immediately ..-) look here: https://digitalsuits.co/hire-developers/hire-shopify-developers/

      I think that even at the initial stage, you need to consult with specialists who have been working in this field for a long time .. and then you will really get the result .. otherwise you can spend a lot of time and in the end you will have to redo everything .. for example, look here: https://www.softformance.com/services/software-consulting-company/
