Let me try to answer your question...........
ANY unvented gas apliance has the potential to creat a dangerous situation in your house. When ever possible ALWAYS go vented. The ones that bring in there own combustion air I like even more, they dont reley solely on air from the dwelling to burn clean. Also look for a unit that has a blower on it so that the heat it produces can be circulated through out the area it serves.
