Will this heater do the job of a room 22 ft long, 10 ft wide and 7 feet tall with good insulation? It is protected by a tree line ten to fifteen feet away from the outside wall. There are only two walls that are outside walls with high quality windows in them. Will this work?

Answer:This product will indeed provide adequate heat for your application. The sizing is such that a central location should provide even and effective heating.

Can this unit be installed below a window?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on February 10, 2012
No, it cannot be installed directly below a window. Please see the following from page 9 in the owner's manual:
"Direct vent furnaces are designed to be installed on a uniform outside wall. When the wind comes from any angle (up, down or from either side), it must hit the vent cap equally over both the air inlet and the flue outlet portions of the vent. Any wall projection, such as a door or window casing, which disturbs the wind on one side of the air inlet section will result in back pressure on the flue section smothering the flame and eventual pilot outage."

I have a bathroom that measures 8' x 12' with a 7' ceiling as well as a larger room that measures 12' x 22' with a 7' ceiling and 6" thick insulation in the ceiling. What brand and size of heater do I need to buy?
By eFireplaceStore on September 14, 2015
Answer:Given your relatively low ceiling height and well insulated space, the DV215 heater would work well for your application. Stepping up to a 20k BTU model would be a bit much. This unit is a well made appliance and should heat the space evenly and efficiently.
