Blue flame gas heater

I am considering adding a 20,000 btu natural gas blue flame wall mounted vent free heater in my living room this winter. The gas line will be installed by a licensed plumber. Any recommendations as to which brands I should consider?

IMO- I would never install a gas vent free heater in my home due to the CO emissions. I would recommended a direct vent fireplace though.

I had a similar heater in the garage at my last place. Wasn't the flame type but the infrared blocks that heated up. Even then, I left the garage door partly open. Wife turned it on one night after I had gone to bed because she was working on crafts and she was cold. Forgot to turn in off and when I went out in the morning, it was 108 degrees and definitely not a breathable atmosphere. I hit the opener and came back in a few minutes to shut it off.

I would still use similar in an enclosed porch or garage situation, but never in the living area.
