Locke Warm Morning Gas Stove: Should I replace it?

I have an older Locke gas stove in my 7-room farm house that I believe is guzzling propane. My tank has been filled several times during this mild winter. Here's some info on the stove...model # VR85MAB with blower, 85,000 hourly btu input, 25,500 minimum input, serial #7190. Anyone ever own one of these heaters and is it not energy efficient compared to today's models? I've seen those ventless wall-mounted gas heaters and am considering going with them. Since I'm not at the farm all the time, I don't want to go with central heat & air. Shall I replace the Locke stove with the wall units...I figure a couple of strategically placed wall heaters will heat the house efficiently. I'm looking forward to your advice and help. Thanks, Lynn
