If the unit is listed for this type of application and if you followed the manufacturer's installation instructions, you should be fine. Personally, I do not trust a vent free gas appliance. Make sure you have good carbon monoxide detectors in your home.

Second what Russell said. Also remember CO detectors have expiration dates. These dates are often 5-7 years. Check the expiration date on your detectors and be sure to replace within the time frame.
