      It looks like a heater to me.

      I cannot believe this place is still available – I love it (but for that carport thing)!

    • It is a heater. No central anything. My auntie’s old house had gas heaters everywhere. From the middle stone ages.

        This house has central heat and air. There are vents everywhere. The wall heater is likely leftover or added as supplemental heat. Not uncommon to have a mix of heating and cooling sources in old houses.

        Actually, that wouldn’t bother me a bit. My gas fireplace heats my upstate NY house as well as my central OHW at a fraction of the price…

          Exactly. Sometimes you don’t want to heat up the furnace if you just need to get the chill out of a room as well. I’ve even read this in many books from the 19th century. Some folks used their fireplaces to help get the chill out of a room because they hadn’t started putting the coal in the big basement furnace yet. Some rooms no matter if you have central heat or not, are just always cold. My kitchen was always freezing in my Queen Anne no matter what I did. I hated it.

          I read an account where Samuel Clemens in the 1880s consistently complained of his billiard room freezing, with central heat vents open, fireplace blazing (it was probably what was sucking out the heat) and all the gas jets burning on high.

        • I like cooking with gas; there’s nothing like it. My aunt’s gas heaters were early 1900’s, and the house always smelled a bit like gas. Also, to me, this house looks almost in move-in condition! It could be my spirut animal!

        Looks like a thermostat on the wall in the 13th picture.
