Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

I can't speak to this specific unit but there are gas heaters/fireplaces that don't require a vent. They are invariably low input (under 30k btu's) and have an oxygen depletion sensor that will shut them down if the oxygen in the room falls to unacceptable levels
