some reviews say that it smells like natural gas also.. Hmmmm.

Great
This is a very nice heater.. took me 3 hours including running 40’ of gas pipe. Mine was set correctly from factory (pilot adjustment). The bracket that hold the heater is ok I hung some chain from the ceiling to level the heater.. not a big deal at all. They only give you 10’ of thermostat wire and a cheap thermostat which I didn’t use. I got a programmable one and ran the thermostat on the other side of the garage. Another thing I also ran into was it was taking a while to light pilot not sure if it was because of the long gas pipe I installed so I opened up the drip cap till I heard the gas tightened it back up and bam.. pilot lit instantly. Overall very happy
Ps. I bought a co2 detector and had it running for 2 days now, not a sign of co2 at all.. so the people complaining of headaches and smell must have installed it wrong! see less

According to its instructions, yes. Itís an unvented heater and the combustion products need to leave the space some how. Are the rafters open on your garage? Do you have a ridge vent open to the garage?

A properly working heater or furnace will produce zero carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide is the result of incomplete combustion.

the ceiling and walls of the garage are drywalled and insulated

there is a ridge vent in the garage attic

the prior furnace's flue pipe is still there through the roof, just not in a great spot.

I have the exact heater that Yaj Yak posted. I don't have open rafters. The simple act of opening the garage door a few times a day takes care of any venting concerns.

All that said, this heater burns blue (complete combustion) so the only products of combustion are water vapor and carbon dioxide.

If you have a garage that you hardly ever open the door, I don't think this heater is ideal. You would get a lot of humidity and CO2 build up when it's really cold out, especially if it's poorly insulated. Since I'm heating my main garage, and the doors open frequently, I never have any humidity or CO2 problems.

As you said before, infrared heats objects. This is fantastic for a garage since opening the door brings in a large mass of cold air. My garage heats back up really quickly after the door is closed since everything inside is already so warm.

Nothing burns at 100% efficiency. Your only byproducts are not just co2 and water vapor...

Have you posted a photo of your setup? I'd be interested in where you mounted your heater in relation to the cars, tools, work bench, doors and etc. Thanks

Worth the read about ventless gas heaters, co2 isnt harmless either

I'll eventually get away from my little portable guy as garage heat and will likely go to infrared.

this is the route im going to go.

since i had a furnace in my garage prior, i already have a flue pipe through my roof i can re-use.

also, i didn't want to worry about the odor of one of the ventless ones that some people report, and some don't.

the radiant ones were enticing but i am leaning against that because they need a good amount of clearance from everything ive read- which i really don't have to give.

i already have gas in the garage and will just need to run another outlet closer to the unit heater.

i like that it is compact, at 25*25*12" and it doesn't require much clearance near it.

Exactly the route I would have gone in your situation.

Although I still think we should rip the flooring out there, insulate it, and then add pex tubing and then repour the floor. Nice radiant heated flooring...

99.9% efficient. While you are technically correct, .1% is irrelevant. The only byproducts emitted in meaningful amounts are water vapor and CO2. Like I said, my garage opens frequently and my heater runs very infrequently, so I never get any excessive humidity or CO2.

I did a while back but it was on photobucket, so I can't link it anymore. I have to find a new place to host images. It's mounted from the ceiling (it has 2x4s spacing it from the ceiling for proper clearance) near the back of my garage between the 2 car and 3 car stalls. It's basically up and to the left side of my work bench pointing at the space between vehicles.

It's mounted near the ceiling. (I have 12 foot ceiling in garage). If you stand in front of it while it's on, you'll get pretty warm quickly. That's why I have it aimed between vehicles. If I'm working on a car in the 3rd bay it's not pointing directly at me.

Good choice. Ventless is just lazy and anyone that believes efficiency % doesnt degrade on startup and over time with use.....have fun

At least youll never have to worry

I have the procom ventless 30k btu I believe. I love it. example- when it was 12 degrees outside I had it set on setting 4 of 5 and the garage was about 75-80 degrees. I have a 2 car garage. I think this works verywell and would be a good choice of you can tap into a gas line. The heater has a internal thermostat and only comes on when needed. I love it.
