I have this old style of heating but I cannot find any information on it. Can anyone help? It's gas and just sorta gets hot heating the house. No blower, no ducts, just the exhaust. The brand on the front says Quaker. It's old.
It is a free standing stove or room heater that was used in homes before people installed forced air heating systems. They were used in homes where I lived growing up in the 1950's. We had 1 in our home and it heated (sort of) 3 rooms with the help of small electric fans.
I think that's a Quaker Manufacturing convection stove and I did not know they made one in gas. They did a lot of oil and kerosene. It's probably not the safest way to heat and definitely not very efficient. There may have several companies making heaters with Quaker in the name so it will hard to identify it. Just so you know, it's not certified for use. If it caused a fire your insurance company would deny your claim.
