Advice on heating a room.. (MI)
posted by jalexei to home & garden (3 answers total)
Does anybody have experience with a vented gas space heater like this?
We’ve got an oil-burning forced hot water furnace in home. My infant daughter’s room sits over an uninsulated garage, has two exterior walls, and gets very chilly in the winter. Insulating the garage is impractical for a number of reasons (and we’d still have the exterior wall issue). Ideally we’d run a separate line to the radiator in her room and run it off its own thermostat, but all my pipes in the basement are wrapped in asbestos, and no contractor worth his license will touch it (which is fine – any work I have done is proper and up to code).
I’m looking into my options re the asbestos, but we do have gas already in the house, and I’m wondering if this might let me heat a room safely, without spending tens of thousands on asbestos abatement.
Any other ideas are welcome.
