Zone heating vs. whole house heating


Remodeling each room in my home one of a time.

Thinking about providing each room with itís own heat source. Small vent free 5 to 10k btu natural gas heaters.

Just like the old days when all of the rooms had a fire place or a curtain to close off the room you were not using.

Does any one do this or have a comment? It think it will be the new trend in heating.

Thanks Craig

Its against code to use vent free's as the sole source of heat in a home.
