Re: need some ideas..

This one says it doesn't require a vent -- I'd definitely have a carbon monoxide detector in the room with me.

I have something very similar in my garage. Different brand but looks the same. Mine is 20,000BTU.

They are 98% efficient and burn clean. I have not seen any without a low O2 sensor.

The main problem with them is they fill the room with moist air. I have never seen condensation in my garage with it as the doors usually leak enough air.

I'd worry about low O2 and high CO2 levels in a closed room though.

A CO detector is a good idea. If I stir up dust, i see the flames turn orange and who knows what the results are.

Good points re. (possible excess) moisture and CO2 when used in a basement room with less "natural" ventilation than a garage. Even if the air's O2 and CO2 are alright, too much humidity could cause condensation and start mold issues.

Maybe run a dehumidifier at the same time? That adds some heat, too...

Same experience for me. Almost exactly.
