    Not sure if this is the right place to ask questions but here goes. I inherited a duplex that was built in late 50's in San Diego. Old navy housing so everything was done on the cheap, no insulation, single glazed glass, hollow doors. But it is San Diego, so the average temperature is 70' year round, one mile from the bay .
    The question is I have an old Coleman wall heater, works perfect, but the tenants want to see a more modern thermostatic control system in place, other than the manual shut off valve to control temperature. Inlet is 1/2 inch black iron pipe going directly to a gas shut off valve with manual pilot light. Tenant is afraid if the pilot goes out, the gas stays on, which isn't possible with pilot control shut off valve.
    My question is, is there a gas valve, pilot shut off conversation to wall thermostatic unit?
