I bought a Comfort Glow 10k-20k ventless heater for my living room. I made
a mistake and bought a unit without a thermostat. My plan is to use the
heater to take the chill out of my living room on very cold days. I'm
wondering if I would be getting up every 5 minutes to turn the heater off or
should I sell what I have and buy a unit with a thermostat. Unfortunately I
can't return the unit.
Thanks in advance
You will, of course, be happiest with a unit containing an thermostat.
However, before you sell it please listen to what I do with mine. I have a
natural gas 10-30k ventless adjustable heater. Once it gets cold enough I
turn it on and let it run 24-7. It doesn't make enough heat for the whole
house so the oil burner (at 60% eff) takes up the slack. It is, of course,
warmer in the room with the space heater than the rest of the house but I
live with it. It is NEVER a problem for me and it cuts down on heating
bills because ventless space heaters are 100% efficient. You might even
consider putting it in the basement below your living room if you have a
finished basement and the living room is too hot with it and too cold
Hope this helps,
