Williams Furnace Company 5002522A 50,000 BTU Vented Hearth Heater with Fireplace Front – If you need to heat a single room or space that gets particularly chilly, such as an unfinished basement or sunroom, then a space heater could be your best bet. Our pick for the best space heater 2019 is the Williams Furnace 5002522A, which features a cozy look and feel thanks to its alluring fireplace front. In addition to its warm ambiance, the 5002522A features quiet operation, excellent heat distribution, and is energy-efficient. Because this is a B vent style heater, this model must be installed against a wall and requires a chimney style vent so that it vents to the outside. There’s also an optional blower available for purchase.

With 99.9 percent efficiency and a durable, easy-to-use design, we think that this unit has the best build quality of all our vent-free heaters. It features blue flame technology, which works by heating the air in the room. This allows the room to warm very quickly.
