Propane Wall Heaters: Quick & Easy Heat!
A Heating Solution For A Small Space
When it comes to warming hard-to-heat rooms in your home, few options can match a propane wall heater.
Super-compact and energy efficient propane wall heaters will keep your basement, hobby room, or any other problem area warm in any weather. But how do you choose a propane space heater from among the many options available?
The search starts by choosing between direct vent and vent-free models. Let’s take a closer look at each:
Direct Vent Wall Heaters
Direct vent space heaters are basically sealed boxes whose combustion exhaust fumes vent directly outside your home via a small pipe through an exterior wall.
Direct vent wall heaters offer:
- A powerful, economical and unobtrusive alternative to a furnace or boiler that is easier to install and maintain
- Precision heating, with the ability to vary intensity and fan speed
- Simple one-hole venting and no ductwork
- Advanced operation, with some models featuring programmable thermostats and other automated settings
Vent-Free Space Heaters
Vent-free propane space heaters don’t need vents or ductwork to provide heat, and they are available in a range of sizes to suit most spaces.
Vent-free propane heaters are less expensive to install than direct vent heaters and offer greater flexibility in their utilization since they don’t require access to an external wall for venting. However, unlike direct vent options, exhaust is released inside the home. For this reason, you need to pay attention to building codes to know where they can be installed (and we can certainly help you with that!) and how to safely accommodate for them while in use.
The Bottom Line With Wall Heaters
Whatever choice you make, a propane wall heater can recover a “lost,” hard-to-heat room with ease; they are a cost-efficient choice for any home with a heating challenge, and a great way to deliver quick, easy heat.
