Wall furnace wanted, or similar

nancykFebruary 4, 2009

We are looking for a backup propane heat source, for when the electricity goes out or the temperatures are very cold and the heatpump cannot keep up. We do have a small set of ventfree gas logs that can warm the kitchen/dining area but we purchased these 20 years ago, they look great and really heat the area but I do notice a smell after just a few minutes. So for another room, we would like to get a direct-vent heat source(furnace, heater, ?) that is wall mounted. I have seen nothing even somewhat attractive in my searches so far.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

An odd odor from unvented gas logs should have you turning off the gas and calling a qualified person for repairs. You will find that among the many warnings the manufacturer issues in writing in the instruction manual for the fireplace.

Not using it for a heating source would be another. No doubt there are others.
