The ProCom heater seems to meet this need very well. I would have rated it higher but I found some of the installation instructions to be inaccurate. Nothing major, but annoying details that cost me some time to sort out. All in all, the product was delivered when promised, and was complete with all the accessories needed for installation.
I estimated ahead of time that my normal house infiltration air flow would be enough to keep the relative humidity below 50%, so I was not concerned about the heater making my room air too moist. The actual room humidity, with the heater running and a -10 deg F outside temperature, was 15% relative humidity. This is consistent with what the ProCom literature told me to expect.
The heater is quiet, and everyone seems to enjoy standing in front of it, for a few minutes, when they first come in from outside
The performance of this heater has been exactly what we wanted! Without any effort except setting the temperature control in the morning and at night, it keeps the room at about 52-55 at night and as warm as we want it in the day. We usually turn up the thermostat when we get up in the morning and within 30 minutes or so the entire room is at 60+ and climbing. If it is a sunny day, once the sun is out the room heats quickly and the thermostat turns the heater off until the evening. If not sunny, then the heater keeps the room comfortable all day. We bought the radiant heater and not the blue flame. This seems to work very well. We can sit a few feet in front of it and be warm but not get too hot. We did not get the blower accessory with it and see no need. This heater is designed to take the cooler air from floor, heat it and through convection the warm air comes out the top vents plus it also radiates heat in front. I mounted the heater 10 inches from the floor to allow for piping and shutoff valve.
We were looking for a heater that we could keep the room at least 50 degrees at night for our plants, and when we turned it up it would put out enough heat so you could immediately feel the difference... this one does that in spades! We also like that it is very quiet. The noisiest thing about it is the pilot light when the unit is not heating.
When looking for a heater, I had wanted a real thermostat where you could set the degrees, etc. It would have been nice to have had it programmable also. Since getting this heater, the 1-5 temperature control has worked very well and seems to be pretty accurate as far as the range at which it keeps the temperature in the room. It does have a pilot that stays lit. On sunny days, I have turned the control to off to shut off the pilot. It is easy to relight. I would not feel uncomfortable about leaving the house for a couple weeks in the winter and leaving the pilot on with the temp control set low.
As for the smells, there is some residual odors that are noticeable especially in the morning when we open the sunroom door, but it is not objectionable... at least to me. It dissipates after the door is open and the air circulates into the rest of the house. We have not had it quite long enough to get our first energy bill, so don't know how it might effect the gas bill. I suspect not much from the other reviews I have read.
Especially if there is a power outage and your furnace is not working.
I would recommend a carbon monoxide detector to be used with this though, just in case the area you are heating is so air tight that it does not get enough oxygen.
