Decorative Propane Heating unit with battery or standing pilot ignition
I’m in zone 6, I’m in the planning/design phase of retirement house for my sister. I’m designing for SIP Construction with air to air, mini splits for heat/cooling.
But we do have power outages, which have lasted for over 24-hours, and occasional days (weeks) where we don’t get above 0-F.
I’m trying to figure out a backup heat source which won’t look ugly in her living room. The one in my house is an older standing pilot, direct vent propane unit. It is downstairs next to the mechanical room, set to 45-F. Just in case the power goes off for an extended period when I’m out of town.
So, I need something which can set in her living room, looking decorative with it’s thermostat set to around 45-F so that the place doesn’t freeeze up if the power is off, and that she can set up to 60-F on cold winter nights where the MiniSplit may not work well enough to keep the house warm.
