Are unflued gas heaters safe?

Unflued gas heaters are much less safe than flued gas heaters. Unflued gas heaters vent air pollutants and water vapour directly into the home. This increases exposure to carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide. Both of these chemicals are very difficult to detect and can cause severe health issues. The safer option, a flued gas heater, vents these harmful chemicals outside the home through a chimney. Unflued gas heaters should be avoided. For the safest option, purchase a flued gas heater. If a flued gas heater is not an option, purchase an electric heater. Electric heaters produce no indoor air pollutants.
