The ProComm heater is ventless and can be purchased in 3 different sizes for your space needs. Mine is a ‘flameless’ but you still see a flame when it kicks on. Once a week I shut it down and blow the sawdust out of it. I’ve had it for 8 years and have never had a problem with it.
It’s really easy to install. It comes with both a wall hanger (like a french cleat….sorta) and feet for setting on the floor. I opted for the fan attachment and it really helps. Both the heater and the fan are thermostatically controlled. I just ran a copper gas line from the upright tank (5 ft.) to a steel pipe through the wall and then back to copper to the heater. Meets code.
The heater costs $200 and the fan was an additional $35.
