That's kinda what I thought.  I bought my house a year ago.  In the newly 
added bedroom, the DPO (houses have DPOs too!) installed a vent free gas 
heater on the wall.  It looks like a cheapy Home Depot job.  When I moved in, 
I shut off the gas.  It hasn't been turned back on.

I am currently using an oil filled electric radiator to boost the heat in 
that room.  It doesn't get as warm as the rest of the house, due to a long 
duct run.  I am planning on using the gas line to add a direct vent gas 
fireplace in the bedroom.
