Space HeatersGas space heaters cost much less to operate than electric heaters. With gas, you're able to zone heat your home providing extra warmth where you need it. Because most natural gas space heaters do not require electricity, you can stay warm even when the power goes out. These modern appliances are available with optional thermostats, blowers and remote controls.
Vented space heaters are available in a variety of sizes and can provide supplemental or whole house heating. Standard atmospheric vented heaters vent vertically through a chimney or vent piping, and direct-vent models can bring in combustion air and vent horizontally through an outside wall.
Smaller, vent-free models (5,000 to 40,000 BTUs) provide zone heating with nearly 100% efficiency. When equipped with an oxygen depletion sensor (ODS) and properly sized, vent-free heaters provide safe and reliable heat. Models sized for bathrooms (up to 6,000 BTUs) and bedrooms (up to 10,000 BTUs) are available. Vent-free heaters are designed to supplement the central furnace or vented heaters in your home and should not be used as the sole heat source.
