I agree with Ed.
A ventless heater is good for short term or emergency use but they are most definitely hazardous.
I suspect that because you are asking about venting this heater that you are either experiencing problems with dirty combustion or are worried about poisoning.

I would suggest that you seriously look at replacing this with a vented model or if your electrical service would allow an electric baseboard heater.

If you must use this heater then make sure that you leave the windows open slightly as there is no way to modify this device.
