    An overhead unit heater is going to be the better option if you don't want duct work.
    I also agree this will be an egregious waste of your money as well.

    Probably not. 1/2" csst is pretty useless beyond fireplaces less than 20"
    Run 1/2" black or 5/8" copper.
    You shouldn't run CSST outside, exposed anyways.

    Your best option is to contract this out.
    Barring that, yes you should turn the power off when you open a unit up, keeping in mind older units/buildings may not have disconnects at all aside from an...

    A proper circuit needs 3 things:
    Source, Path, and Load.
    A switch is not always necessary but it's your control point. A...

    Once the winter comes your furnace probably won't even run. I've seen this many times before on "direct-vent only" units.
    Call them back and have the intake installed, withhold payment if possible.

    CPS makes them, but don't try to pull a vacuum with them, they don't seal!
    YJ also makes them, I haven't had a chance to test those yet under vacuum.
    Both hold well under pressure though.
