Gas standalone range with space heating component?
Gas standalone range with space heating component: Does anyone make such a device? That is, a single standalone unit that melds a room -heating component to the side of it? I ask because we have one that used to function that way, there was a kerosene heater on the side of the gas stove. The kerosene was dismantled long ago but I'm wondering whether such an appliance could still be had?
And if not, out of curiosity, why not?
Plus, if so, is it wise? That is - I'm remembering the old telephone-plus-answering-machine-plus-whateverallelse ... the advice there when the custom was to start loading multiple functions into one unit - the observation was that basically if a single appliance does more than one thing, likely they do them all poorly and you're better off just buying two dedicated-function units. So I'm wondering whether even if, say, this kind of dual-purpose heating device existed whether you'd be better off just getting a stove and heater anyway?
