Updating heating system.....
Gonna be lookig to update the heating system in a camp that i'll soon be the owner of. Currently there is a gravity fed standing oil unit (heatrolla) in there now. Tt works, but its old, and heating oil is expensive. looking to go with ventless propane, and wood burner. camp is around 800 sq ft. two bed 1 bath. attic is insulated. walls are block with 2 inch foam between block and paneling on the inside.
There is an existing 12x 16 masonary chimney the the oil furnace was vented thru that I would use to vent the wood burner. I just don't know how big of a ventless heater I will need to get, i'm thinking 20-30,000 btu. I aso don't know what is better blue flame or infrared? What brand does everyone else use, and how safe are they?
