Hi Charles,You can purchase an in-wall gas heating unit at most large home improvement stores, and they are also available at many on-line tool retailers. Most of them will have a thermostat, but check in the description to be sure. An in-wall gas heating unit can be a good choice if you live in an area with frequent power outages. Many of them do not require electricity to operate.

A word of caution, working with gas should not be taken lightly, or done by someone without experience. A properly installed and maintained gas appliance can provide many years of safe usage, but if it is installed improperly there can be dire consequences.

Most jurisdictions require a permit and an inspection when you add a gas appliance to your home. While this may seem like a lot of trouble, it is for your safety. It ensures that a licensed and trained contractor installs the appliance, and then a trained city or county inspector will double check their work. The inspector will check to make sure there are no gas leaks, that the appliance is receiving the proper amount of gas, and that venting is done correctly.
