It is hard to believe that anyone, anywhere could get a device that emits any exhaust to be operated in a place of human inhabitance. It is not even a question to say 'Are you F***ing Nuts?'

Over the weekend I stopped at Lowes for a replacement light bulb for my front porch. They had TV stands with built-in propane or natural-gas fireplaces. They didn't look too bad. If I ever had to buy a new TV stand, I would consider one of these as a backup source of heat only. You can never have enough reserve heat and they could serve a purpose if used sparingly. A few nights a year that warm glow might help me get lucky! ;)

Another problem besides the CO. !!! Is these appliance tend to add to much moisture to the building, thus causing very hard to diagnose mold and mildew problems along with humidity on the inside of window dripping like skylights .
