My kitchen part is currently heated by a compact, ventless gas heater… Because the apartment is nearly one hundred and fifty years old & lacks conventional air duct, it’s problematic to heat & cool, the luck of the little gas furnace is that it doesn’t take up much section or require any venting capabilities, and despite the small size, it puts out a superb deal of heat.
With entirely long winters & temperatures well below zero, the ventless gas furnace carries an entirely demanding workload! I’m not entirely happy with it.
It is a single stage heater, which means that it can only operate at full capacity. There is no way to adjust the speed. The gas furnace is either on or off. When the temperature in the kitchen drops below the temperature control setting, the gas furnace kicks on. It then blasts a tremendous amount of entirely sizzling air non stop, once it achieves the desired temperature level, the gas furnace shuts down & blows cold air to cool itself down. This creates extremely unpleasant temperature swings. The ventless gas furnace features 2 separate air filters that need to be consistently cleaned. I make sure to clean them at least once per week. If even a tiny portion of dust accumulates in the screens of the filters, a purple light flashes on the control panel of the heater. When this happens, the gas furnace will no longer shut itself down. It simply runs non stop until I manually shut it off. I’m distraught that the plan will overheat & create a safety threat. There’s also the issue that the gas furnace causes an oily film on our windows. I have a set of French doors separating our kitchen from the kitchen, however each of the three doors features 12 small panes of glass that I frequently need to clean.
