I have a 1000 sq. ft. house in northern Wisconsin that is sitting on a slab. It's heated with an 50,000 BTU LP gas stove and does a very good job. What I'm doing is changing the 17 x 26 ft. attached garage into bedrooms. The bedrooms will be 12 x 13 with the rest of the room from the garage going to the living room. I'm not worried about the gas stove heating the extra room it will have to for the living room, but wondering what my best option is for heating the bedrooms. New heat system for the whole house is not an option ($6000). I've been looking into direct vent room heaters on the internet. Are these heaters my best option? Do you go with one with a fan or one without a fan? How much noise do they make? And final question, how many BTU model for each room. By the way, the new rooms will have 2x6 walls which I will ensulate with the best stuff I can get. Also each room has one 4'x 4'window in it. Thanks for any answers!
