Cold spaces?

Here's a cosy, cost-effective cure for those chilly rooms.

Natural gas wall furnaces—also known as direct-vent room heaters—are just the thing to quickly warm up your frigid garage, rec room, office, carriage house or cottage.

These sleek little units will keep you cosy, whether you need to supplement the existing heating system in your home to reach those cold spots, or you have a home where a central heating system isn’t feasible. 

A few wall furnace benefits:

  • easy install: no duct work or chimneys required
  • safety features:  these heaters remain cool to the touch and include child locks
  • improved comfort: air is heated and circulated throughout your home, eliminating cold spots and providing superior comfort
  • save money on your heating bill: enjoy the cost-savings of natural gas
