Wall heater in upcoming inspection

Preparing for an inspection tomorrow morning snd I see “wall” listed as the heating system on the online information page about the property. Not sure if it electric or gas or if it has been updated to central. What are opinions about wall heaters? I can’t find much but they seem to be unsafe.

Welcome to our forum, Thomas!..Enjoy! :smile:

Gas wall heater are fine if maintained sufficiently. Just check it like you would a furnace in the basement.

It is probably getting old and the should budget for replacement, if it is running well. Otherwise refer it out for safe operation of the unit.


Depends on what kind of wall heater.
If its a direct vent Empire, Williams, etc. nothing to it. Simply make sure it fires up and thats it.
