A propane wall heater is a great way to add low cost heating to any room. When installed correctly they are safe to use, and can be more economical than electric heaters. In the event of a power outage some models can be used without using an electric ignition, meaning you won't be without heat. Installing these units won't require a professional, just a little time and a few tools. Step 1 - Determine the Location Your heater needs to be hung in an area where the propane tank can be placed outside the home with the heater directly on the other side. This means you will need to find a location on an outside wall.

Are you sure you want to delete this answer? Yes Sorry, something has gone wrong. It depends on the manufacturer and type of unit you have. Some do require that you vent straight up through the heated portion of the building and out the roof. In this case you need double wall vent, a roofjack to put over the ventpipe to keep water from coming in around the pipe when it rains and a cap for the ventpipe for the same reason. If it is a direct-vent type, you probably will only need to cut about a 7" round hole through the wall for the vent assembly. It mounts directly to the back of the unit and provides fresh air for combustion and vents the products of combustion back outside.
Sustainability How to Install a Vent-Free Gas Heater Although vent-free gas heaters capitalize on the clean-burning properties of natural gas or propane to provide room heat, controversy surrounds the issue of how clean they actually are. Several states limit their use, and California prohibits them for residential heating altogether, although you can use one to heat an outbuilding or a shed. Controversial or not, vent-free room heaters are simple to install, requiring nothing more than a safe location and a source of gas. Description Whereas a conventional gas heater draws air from the room or from outside to burn its fuel and exhausts the combustion gases outside, a vent-free heater recycles room air. The refined design of the heater reduces the production of combustion gases to a minimum, and proponents of vent-free heating claim percent efficiency.
