Tall 2 sided wall heater


Hello All,

First post and great site.

Can anyone tell me if those louver 5.5'x18" tall 2 sided gas wall heaters are still for sale?

I have an older one with just a gas on/off valve and not the city is saying the heater must have a thermostat for me to use it. So I need to replace this one. The current heater will heat two rooms and is mounted on the same common wall.

I tried to search for "gas wall heater" but no luck on finding anything close to what I currently have.

I'm in the Los Angeles CA area.

Any help would be grateful.

SB

Thanks Biggles,

I called the local HD and they have one. It's a little deeper than what I hoped for at 6 inch, but better than nothing!!

I really appreciate the reply!

Williams 5009622 Ceramic Gas Wall Mounted Panel Heater is available for sale at Home Depot for $577. Has wall mount thermostat. If no store is close, you can have it shipped yourself. I have the same type myself and this is the only one I have found. It is a ceramic element heater.

Thanks...I looked at those and they stick out of the wall 6 inches. After taking measurements I realized that this heater will take up to much of the aisle in the small hallway.

Is there a way to convert the old wall heater to a thermostat switch vs the current on and off (so the gas company will be happy? As I mentioned in my original post.

Thanks

You might be able to add a more modern gas valve, a transformer, and safety system along with a thermostat.

The retro could cost 6 bills or more in parts though.

There is a mechanical automatic gas valve, that you may or may not be able to retro in, they go for around 3 bills wholesale. So you'll pay a fair bit more for it.
