Can any of these be used as the sole heat source for a well-insulated 680 sq ft home using propane as the fuel?

Our Answer:

Because these units use oxygen from within the home for combustion, a vent free fireplace cannot be used as the sole source of combustion. Dangerously low oxygen levels can result if the unit malfunctions. I would recommend using a "heater rated", direct vent fireplace instead. These types of fireplaces utilize air from outside the home and vent their exhaust to the outdoors as well, making them a safer alternative that can be continuously used. The following model would be a good unit to heat the square footage you have: Direct Vent Gas Fireplace.
