Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RE why does Home depot sell this product?
I bought this through depots web site. For some reason neither Home depot nor the manufacturer offer the venting specifically required in the directions to install it. Neither did any local HVAC suppliers or gas companies. Finally a Home Depot rep contacted the manufacturer and found an independent web site that sold me the two oval vent pipes required for over $150 plus sipping of course. Still waiting for parts to arrive. Why aren't these specific, and hard to find parts supplied with the heater or at least available through Home Depot. An expensive pain to install.

The furnace arrived earlier than expected, which was great since the one it replaced had quit working. The thermostat that comes with the unit is a nice feature that I didn't have with the last furnace. The installation was relatively simple.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by muddyroz9 It does the job
Just swapped out the old Williams furnace which was 20+ old with this new one. Heats my entire house pretty well. Only down side is the thermostat will not allow you to adjust the temp. just on and off but you can replace it with a better one. Overall I'm satisfied with this purchase.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Asiangem Don't forget to order assessory for two rooms
The BIG item which you need to know if you are using this unit for two rooms is to order the assessory part number Willaims number #6901 (I don't know the Home Depot number) for a rear vent and cover registery kit to convert it into use for both rooms - this is not stated in the website.
The Williams company has since the 1960's or more has made good products. Don't get the one with the motorized fan blower if the unit is up in flames - then it will blow flames into your room!
The rough in size is about 14 3/4"in width which is not stated on the website so it fits between the studs which is nice. The finish sizes are state on the website.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Muadib excellent small area furnace
Replaced an existing wall furnace of unknown make or output in around 2 hours with this furnace. Care must be taken to get the receiving opening to the correct dimensions as well as the spacing from floor to ceiling; not too difficult though. It has great output and the cheap thermostat seems to work very well; not enough thermostat cable is included nor is there a flexible connection included to connect the gas to the furnace. The directions are easy and straight forward and the furnace seems sturdy with a modestly good looking cover.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by terabyte33 Looks nice and appears to work great thus far
I just installed this in May in my rental unit. It appears to work great, I purchased the optional fan unit and I was really suprised how well this unit pushed air as the fan sits on top as a last ditch effort to suck heat from the flue. It was not very cold outside so I will not be able to contest how well it works in cold weather. The instructions were a bit confusing at times but if you take your time and logically breakdown the install it's not bad at all. It does look very nice installed. I will say like most modern devices they use cheap thin metal and can easily be damaged. But look at the price and one cannot complain :)

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Artofkicking This product needs help
The furnace itself works fine, however the fan accessory is poorly designed. It would not come on. I had to engineer changes myself so that it came on automatically. This is not something I recommend for the novice.
The BIGGEST PROBLEM was with the online ordering. The store clerk ordered as home delivery which I had to personally clear up with the online store. Secondly my order arrived first later than promised by online order and then even later by the shipper (Non-Stop). I found out later the order was actually in town for a week before they delivered it to the store.
